The Retail Toolbox

There are various retail analytics tools which can be used to increase sales and optimise the retail process. These include…

Retail queue

Tool: Queue Monitoring

Nobody likes queuing. Too long a queue annoys customers, drives them away and makes it less likely that they will return another day. Measuring queues - knowing exactly how many people are in the queue at the moment, the average queuing time, how many people leave the queue before reaching the front and so on - allows retailers take steps to remedy any problems found. The tool can also predict when queues are likely to form and enable retailers to take pre-emptive action.

Journey Map
Some diverse average shopping times in a chain of shops in Germany. In the shops where people spend just 6 minutes there is great potential for improvement and increased sales.

Tool: Average shopping or dwell time

The average shopping time reflects the overall level of service in the store. The better the service, the longer people stay and the more likely they are to make a purchase. Measuring and improving average shopping time results in an increase in:

  1. The number of people buying something
  2. The number of items they buy
  3. The amount of money that they spend
Sales conversion rate chart

Tool: Conversion Rate

Integrating people counts with the point-of-sale system allows staff to see the current conversion rate of the store - down to 5 minute intervals. They can immediately take action to improve performance.
