WHAT: As more than two-thirds of consumers are using smartphones while shopping in brick-and-mortar stores, customers are empowered with unprecedented transparency about price, quality, and service information. Retailers must do all they can to deliver an increasingly relevant customer experience, build brand loyalty, and enhance their value proposition. From planning and site selection to merchandising and indoor mapping, Esri’s location intelligence and analytics solutions allow retailers to understand why things happen where they do and to add real, bottom-line value to the customer experience.

Featured Announcement: During the event, Esri will unveil a new retail marketing analysis app, designed to help retailers better understand consumer behavior by performing market analysis on any one of their stores. Based on multiple data feeds, including census data and Esri’s popular Tapestry demographic data, the app will help ID population groups based on consumers’ lifestyles, what goods and services customers buy, and how they spend their free time. Retailers can stop by the booth for their own personalized report and to uncover hidden insights into consumer behavior.

Featured Demos: Esri will also be hosting partners GISinc. and UberMedia in booth #3883. By combining Esri’s software capabilities with these partners’ technology, retail companies can see firsthand how information derived from mobile data can help retailers personalize their customer experiences.
