Providing Guest Wi-Fi access is one of the keys to improving the guest and shopper experience in retail and hospitality. It has become a competitive necessity for retailers to not just provide network access, but to engage shoppers with special offers and personalized incentives. With the explosion of smartphones and mobile device usage, in-store shoppers are searching for product reviews and price shopping expect great Wi-Fi (and free) connectivity. Although providing Guest Wi-Fi gives an opportunity for the retailer to improve the shopper experience, it does not drive opportunities for increased engagement or understanding the customer behavior.
ExtremeGuest is a robust and comprehensive guest engagement solution which gives unique opportunity for the retailer to personalize engagement by understanding the customer behavior and interest, and then tailor services based on the insights. For example, knowing how many customers enter the store, how often they visit, and how much time they spend are all metrics that can be measured through ExtremeGuest. Further, retailers can take advantage of social networking behavior to increase patronage, expand brand exposure, and understand customer demographics and preferences in a more comprehensive and personal way.
