Big Data for In Store Initiatives

Online analytics are continually growing and giving online businesses the ability to adapt at a moment's notice to the needs of their customers; whereas, brick and mortar are limited in options for tracking that same customer’s journey. The few analytics that are captured are taken from the point-of-sales system and are often not conclusive enough to warrant real change.

Join the Qi Leap team at the Qi Leap Headquarters for an in-depth look at how their analytics tools are changing the way we approach brick and mortar business --  from marketing initiatives, sales goals and customer retentions.

Capacity: 25 people
