This data turns out to be very precious at many levels – operational, strategic and promotional – across a company. Although the results are undeniable, it must be noted that still, too few retailers are interested in footfall data.

Footfall analytics tools must be placed strategically to provide relevant data that will help take effective actions, measure them and optimize them.
