  • Integration of online and offline data: Data from both online and offline sources is integrated into the cloud-based BI platform, to allow seamless omni-channel customer management. This includes, amongst others, proprietary data collected from CRM, mobile shopping app, Wechat account, Wechat micro-app. The extensive integration of data allows a more in-depth understanding and segmentation of customers from a 360-degree profile of users. 
  • Drive retail and sales decisions: Data analysis drives precise and real-time business decisions like store expansions, product selection and offerings for targeted customer segments as well as personalized customer services. iClick Interactive also provides LBS (Location-based Services) to target potential customers within 5km of a client’s physical stores, attracting more traffic and enabling other marketing triggers. 
  • Establishment of Data-Management Platform: Putting in place a DMP delivers a seamless omni-channel and personalized shopping experience, covering both online and offline to meet the trends of Smart Retail.
