Wi-Fi analytics is the showcasing of data captured via Wi-Fi access points which can be utilized to enhance marketing initiatives, physical layouts, and business operations. There are two different types of data analytics performed by Wi-Fi analytics solutions. These types are marketing analytics and presence analytics. The data collected for analytics include location data, behavioral data, demographic data and digital marketing data.
Wi-Fi Analytics: Market Dynamics
Access to targeted marketing capabilities and online behavioral data allows online businesses to reframe user experience, provided that their physical counterparts can keep up. Brick-and-mortar stores are required to find different ways to understand and interact with prospects and customers, while they are visiting in order to improve customer experiences, predict behaviors, and re-market efficiently. Wi-Fi analytics offers a way for businesses to close the gap between online and offline visibility and insights into the prospect’s behavior. Whether the end-user is a retail shop, an entire city or a two-day music festival, behavioral and sentiment analytics help reveal constructive insights that have the ability to drive the end-user’s performance strategies. This is the primary factor boosting the adoption of commercial Wi-Fi analytics in the global market. However, Wi-Fi analytics do not automatically enhance business capabilities. The end-user is required to act on the constructive insights generated by Wi-Fi analytics. The lack of strategic intellect can actually deteriorate user experience, irrespective of whether the business is online or offline (physical). This factor limits the adoption of Wi-Fi analytics solutions.
