Shopper Intelligence

Shopper Intelligence

Until now, what actually happens in real life stores leading up to a purchase is like a data black hole.

Shopper Intelligence provides systematic measurement of shoppers in packaged goods, benchmarking across all major categories and retailers in the UK since 2011 including discounters and on line. In 2019 we are adding to our existing survey driven data a world first measurement of in-store behaviour. Brand new AI driven technology allows us to measure interactions in great detail across the entire store with thousands of “real life” shoppers, benchmarking all categories, displays, and gondola ends right down to brand level. At a base level you get your category/segment/brand “conversion funnel” in quantitative terms, which tells you exactly where you win or lose the shopper at the moment of truth; compared to others. From their you can compare different instore executions to measure what works best.

The unique aspect of the Shopper Intelligence ‘s subscription database is that each category is explained in context with all the others. The ability to say exactly how it differs is key to persuasive proposals to retail buyers or senior management.
