Barnes & Noble presents at the Big Analytics Roadshow, 2012 in New York City on December 12, 2012
Presentation title: Using Big Data to Quantify Loyalty - 'Do you come here often?', by Rafael Mejia
Customer loyalty traditionally has been measured by running surveys to determine the customer’s 'willingness to recommend', satisfaction, etc. Now, with the ability to analyze vast amounts of sales data, online behavior, and reading patterns, Barnes & Noble can measure shifts in customer loyalty at individual stores, regions, or channels. Methods that have long been available for measuring online behavior are now being applied to their brick-and-mortar stores, for a comprehensive view of customer purchase patterns, enabling Barnes & Noble to improve services that better address an individual customer’s needs.
