Foursquare has launched a service to analyze off-line stores traffic
Foursquare announced about the launch of Foursquare Analytics platform for brands and retailers, which allows to analyze the attendance and audience of offline stores.
Using the service, retailers will be able to obtain data about sex and age of their customers, analyze trends and to track changes in attendance outlets – at the scale of individual cities or the entire country. They will also be able to compare these metrics with the performance of individual competitors or use the category in general.
