Opportunity to Buy or License Key Patents Covering Behavior Analytics

While online retailers have visibility into the entire “path to purchase” funnel, brick-and-mortar retailers and CPGs need additional assistance to gain insights into shopper behavior. Using patented sensing and artificial intelligence technologies, the Company can capture and interpret in-store behavior, helping retailers and CPGs reduce “shopping friction” to optimize store performance, understand shopping patterns for their products and categories and improve conversion. The Company is also able to combine in-store behavior data with other data sources, including transactions, planograms, product mapping, loyalty and promotions to generate meaningful data analytics services for its partners.

Broad Claims Covering Video Analytics, Retail Analytics, Mobile Tracking and Frictionless Checkout

The Company’s robust patent portfolio includes 46 powerful patents for behavior sensing and interpretation for retail and other applications.



Opportunity to Tap Into a Growing Market

The Company has commercialized much of the patent portfolio, and currently partners with more than 50 retailers and CPG companies to deliver data analytics revealing in-store shopper behavior. Retailers use the data to optimize their store formats and test new concepts. The Company’s CPG clients receive syndicated shopper insights, allowing them to work with retailers on shopper marketing strategies, category management, brand strength tracking and custom in-store shopper behavior analysis. Opportunities to apply the technology in other arenas, particularly to commercialize it in frictionless checkout, are endless.
