Location Analytics: New Data, New Opportunities


Retailers have long used location analytics as a staple for determining the best locations for their stores, but they used data supplied by others. And that data was somewhat static.

Now, thanks to an influx of non-transactional data from mobile phones, social networks and eCommerce, retailers have exciting new opportunities to move beyond the basics to localizing product mixes, improving the quality of their customer interactions, and, of course, more finely tuning their site selection programs. The challenge, of course, is using this data without sliding into the realm of creepy.
