The insights

We can track total movement of a shopper around your store, following and recording their movements and actions. Monitoring the customer journey and buyer behavior can give you clear qualitative insight on areas that need improving:


  • Is there slow service?
  • Are there queue length problems?
  • Does your sector have high service requirements?
  • How fast is stock replenished?

Store Layout:

  • What is your highest interest product?
  • Are fixtures too low?
  • Are walkway gaps too narrow?
  • What areas are the poorest converters?
  • Are products in the wrong place?

Product Mix:

  • Is your product density too high?
  • Do you have the correct signage?
  • Is your labeling confusing?

By mapping consumer buying behavior, we can bring clear and accurate insight to understand how customers use your store and the buying process you offer.

  • Context provides rich insight. Every store experience is influenced by the rest of the shopping expedition.”
