Organizations can use our privacy-compliant MobileScapes to identify who’s visiting their locations, see where they live and work and how often they visit. By combining best practices in processing spatial data with privacy-friendly lifestyle segmentation, MobileScapes helps users develop a stronger understanding of their visitor profile by time of day and day of week to make informed decisions around their products, marketing, messaging and staffing levels. The anonymized and permission-based data is drawn from location-enabled mobile devices. We then integrate the data with demographic, lifestyle, social values and spending information from our PRIZM segmentation system, which makes it possible to develop detailed profiles of consumers in any trade area or location whether you have customer data or not.

Additional services

Standard Reports: Clients who need ad-hoc analysis with relatively simple requirements may prefer a standard report, which can provide practical mobile data-driven insights around their location or that of a competitor.

Consulting Services: For larger, custom projects we offer consulting services to provide hands-on support to deliver the results you need. These services are ideal for large areas looking for patterns between multiple points.

Custom Reporting Tools: Organizations looking to view the data in a tailored way to inform their decision-making process can bring our mobile analytics data directly into their own custom reports to monitor on-going changes within their market areas.

Environics Analytics employs strict data security and privacy protocols to ensure all of our data are anonymized and privacy compliant. We only access consent-based mobile data which come from devices held by consumers who have agreed to share their location information.
