Know your best customers

Retailers need an authentic customer engagement strategy to deliver the personalized experiences and offerings customers expect. Understanding customer behavior is key to retail effectiveness, resilience, and sustainable growth. With tools like GIS, machine learning, and business intelligence, retailer leaders can engage customers where they are—on social media, on an app, or in a store.

Unlock insights from your CRM with GIS

Customer relationship management (CRM) tools are the authoritative source for insights about your customers. Combined with GIS, a CRM is the tool consumer-facing businesses can use to engage and build relevant relationships with their most important asset: their customers.


Unlock precise customer insights with GIS

Retailers use CRM tools to connect with and engage customers. GIS can unlock the spatial aspects of CRM tools, highlighting places where there are higher concentrations of your best customers and enabling more focused and relevant marketing and higher conversion rates.
