Pathr and Spatial Intelligence
Do You Know Where Your Customers Are?
Tech innovations reveal insights about your customers that you may not see in plain sight. In-person analytics should be as common for each retailer as online analytics are for their websites. How do retailers measure and leverage the shifts in consumer behavior as cities and businesses reopen? Join special guests George Shaw, CEO of Pathr, Robin Lewis and Shelley E. Kohan, TRR’s chief strategist as they explore how algorithm-based spatial intelligence provides meaningful insights to help understand live customer interactions in real time, increase sales, decrease losses and manage your workforce.
Open-Source Collaboration: The Future of Retail
Continuous retail transformation thrives through open collaboration. Partnerships are the acceleration tools retail needs to compete in a dynamic digital marketplace. Going it alone can limit and even repress your ability to lead change, transform and remain competitive. Consider this: You have no shortage of data but lack the insights and intelligence that connect it real-time and make it relevant. You can try to hack through it alone or streamline the process. Join Robin Lewis in a revealing conversation with Nelson Petracek, CTO at TIBCO and Stacey Shulman, Vice President Internet of Things Group at Intel, who share their story on how their collaboration has led to a breakthrough tech innovation for retailers of any size. And learn more about the open-source collaboration between Intel and TIBCO.
