Mobile Geofencing & Real-Time Engagement

Evolving our research methodologies to take advantage of new technology is an important way to help ensure respondent engagement and deliver better quality data. At the same time, clients are demanding faster insights and ROI-proof points. Geofencing addresses these two issues by providing an alternative to in-person exit interviewing. This session will demonstrate how data collection techniques are evolving beyond traditional research surveys, providing the opportunity to create unique experiences for respondents and the ability to gain real-time insights into shopper behaviour.
