Ask yourself – and have your clients ask themselves – what is the best way to determine whether a signage deployment is successful. How do you know the return on investment, (ROI)? You need to measure something, but what?
Traditional broadcast digital signage is a real mystery. There’s nothing to measure. Nothing direct anyway.
How many people are passing by your screen? How many react to it? Is it working? What does “working” even mean? Was it worth the investment?
With interactive digital content, on the other hand, your target audience expresses their preferences through interaction and, indirectly, provides insights about themselves, everything from demographics to frequency of use in relation to location and other environmental contexts. The insight is so rich, what can't you learn?
Intuiface, through its Analytics offering, makes it easy to collect and analyze information about any event you care about.
Specify any accessible data in your running experiences and the resulting information is automatically sent from every deployed device running Player to a cloud-based, Intuiface-hosted data hub. Once on that Data Hub, you have the choice of creating your own visualizations using Intuiface Charts and Dashboards, or forwarding data to a variety of third party platforms for the purposes of analysis, marketing automation and/or data warehousing.
