How can WiFi Analytics work for your business?

With an ever-growing and mind-boggling degree of choice in the WiFi Analytics market, it can be difficult to separate one platform from another in order to select the best choice for your business.

A basic understanding of the technology which forms the basis of location tracking and location analytics is often a logical and revealing place to begin. 

WiFi location-based analytics

A customer or guest WiFi enabled device does not have to be connected to your network in order to be located and tracked. As mobile devices are constantly seeking better, alternative, connections, wireless access points are able to establish a physical connection which can then be 'triangulated' based upon the relative signal strength to numerous points. 

Using this data, our WiFi Analytics solutions employ complex algorithms to reveal in-depth insight into customer journeys, preferences and experiences.


Analytics to rival the Web

The stumbling block for many retailers in viewing in-store customer WiFi as a sound investment often lies in the ability (or lack thereof) to monetise the services. Of course, within the hospitality sector, opportunities to achieve a return, or to even turn a profit, from guest WiFi are notionally more available. This has not necessarily been the case for retailers…until now.

Visitor Analytics on your Guest WiFi

For years, online retailers have exploited the data advantage – processing daily shots of customer segment and behaviour data and turning it into actionable and measurable modifications to their visitor experience.

With WiFi analytics, bricks-and –mortar retailers can gather and use the very same metrics available to their online counterparts to analyse and improve their customers’ journey. At the physical layer of tracking, key performance indicators (KPIs) such as ‘number-of-visits’, ‘frequency’, ‘dwell time’ and even ‘average revenue per visit’ can all combine to help optimise store layouts, staff positioning and bottlenecks. 

At the second layer of authentication – the session initiation stage – granular customer segmentation data, such as age and gender can be captured, as well as opening the opportunity for opt-in location-based push marketing campaigns.
