Big Data sounds like a simple concept at first but once armed with the data many managers don’t know what to do with it. Properly analyzing big data is one of the things people struggle with but it shouldn’t be difficult.
People counters collect raw data on traffic patterns within a facility, this is typically the first step to obtaining big data. The next step involves the processing of raw data and analyzing it in order to fully understand and utilize the given data. By understanding customer traffic data such as, queue lengths, average length of visit, dwell times, weather trends and conversion rates management will be able to raise their bottom line and create better customer experiences.
With an abundance of information available, management can feel overwhelmed and may miss critical information that could help streamline operations and help drive revenue.
