Use Cases

Consumer Insights & Demographics - Identify consumer
trends, demographics and patterns of behavior by observing
where they shop or travel. Location intelligence can produce
privacy-protecting insights into consumer demographics by
homing and cross referencing anonymized devices to census
block groups. Having an understanding of consumer insights
allows you to tailor and personalize messaging to retain
existing customers and engage new consumers.

Loyalty Management - Identify your active customers,
learn about their brand preferences, patterns of movement
and loyalty levels. See if they also shop, travel or stay with
competitors and target advertising campaigns to those users
to win back their dollars.

Measurement & Attribution - Close the online to offline
attribution gap by using foot traffic analysis to determine
whether or not consumers actually visit your venue after
viewing an ad or receiving a coupon via location-based
advertising.

Segmentation - Use premium, location-derived personas
based on mobile device movement that reveal user behaviors,
demographics and buyer intent. These precisely targeted
mobile audiences improve advertising campaign performance
and deliver publisher insights. Skyhook’s Personas are
available through our DSP & DMP partners as well as via direct
data feeds from Skyhook to agencies and trading desks.

Competitive Insights - Monitor and geofence competitors’
locations to get a relative sense of consumer foot traffic
patterns and loyalty levels. You’ll be able to identify both
new prospective customers and also ones you’ve lost. Using
consumer location data from our Context SDK and trusted
partners, we provide foot traffic analytics and identify customer
loyalty to key competitors.

Targeting - Using the mobile advertising identifier (MAID), build
behavioral and demographic targeting profiles derived from
venue visit data.

Public Safety - Detect where crowds will be located and how
devices travel to their destination, in order to properly allocate
first responders and other public resources.

Site Selection Analysis - Let location intelligence and analytics
help inform you on the best potential brick and mortar
locations. Foot traffic analysis enables you to see where your
target consumers visit most frequently and also allows you to
analyze movement patterns around specific areas. Additionally,
you can incorporate demographic information into your
location analytics to help select the best location that appeals

Asset Vulnerability Evaluation - Hectare-level (100m2) view of
where infrastructure is located and the level of device activity
around it. This is a powerful tool to safeguard valuable assets
against external factors, such as storm surges, floods, fires, or
other disruptive disasters.
