FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (October 6, 2015) — Buxton is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new exclusive data partnership with Digital Recognition Network (DRN), the owner of the largest vehicle location database in the United States. The partnership will allow Buxton to enhance its location analytics capabilities for retail and restaurant clients, as well as for shopping center owners.

DRN’s data will assist Buxton clients in better understanding the business potential at more than 700 high-end retail centers across the country. DRN’s database consists of over 4 billion vehicle locations and the company captures license plate images on vehicles at the rate of 100 million per month in the United States.

“This exclusive partnership will yield tremendous value for our clients,” said Tom Buxton, founder and CEO of Buxton. “Whether a client wants to understand how their vehicular traffic overlaps with a competitor’s or to identify trade area trends by daypart, we will be able to leverage this data to provide meaningful answers.”

“Our agreement with Buxton is a great example of the innovative applications possible for vehicle location data without any information that identifies the registered owner of the vehicle,” said Chris Metaxas, CEO of DRN. “We are pleased to provide the retail, restaurant and commercial real estate industries with access to our best-in-class traffic data insights.”
