Mobility analytics can enhance what you know about who attends sporting events, concerts, festivals, shopping centers etc. It can be instrumental in determining if the experiential events, sampling campaigns or in-store promotions you sponsor attract the consumers that match your target audience.
Mobility data is an anonymized, permission-based data service, which uses data collected from location-enabled devices that were observed within a geofenced area defined by latitude and longitude. Our mobility data is collected only if consent is provided by the individual. See Mobility Analytics
Using segmentation and behavioral databases, you can understand the needs and behaviors of consumer segments.
