      Answer Important Sector-Specific Questions, Quickly

      Government: Who is starting to frequent local businesses? Or use public transportation?

      Retail: How quickly are different parts of the population heading back to bricks-and-mortar locations? How do changing shopper patterns impact staffing and store hours?

      Financial: Are the same segments coming back to branches as during pre-pandemic times? Which audiences are a priority for additional online services?

      Grocery and CPG: How have shopper patterns changed pre- and post-pandemic? How can this help with sales forecasting?

      Travel and tourism: How do visitor volumes to a region compare to the same time last year? Who is most likely to come back?



      MobileScapes and Recovery Planning

      How do marketers and other decision-makers move forward in these uncharted waters? We believe the answer is threefold:

      1. Develop an understanding of consumers’ movement away from their homes – who are they, where they are going, for how long and how this is changing week-to-week (and importantly, how this compares relative to pre-pandemic patterns)
      2. Differentiate these consumers and citizens based on their demographics, motivations and attitudes
      3. Identify the neighborhoods where these varying populations live in order to effectively reach and engage them

      Successfully accomplishing the steps above means leveraging new and existing data sources, including mobile movement data, incorporating innovative technologies and applying analytical and industry sector expertise – all within a privacy-compliant framework.
