Indoor navigation guides you to your destination inside a shopping mall or building—just like outdoor GPS.
Makes it easier, faster and more convenient for shoppers to find stores and products that are of interest to them.
Reduces the number of shoppers who leave a mall without making a purchase because they are unable, frustrated or lack the time to find the stores and products they are seeking.
Provides an enhanced shopping experience as compared to kiosks, information desks and text-for- location services. These positive benefits enhance a shopping mall’s brand equity.
Toyota’s Prius—the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle
Remember when Toyota introduced its hybrid Prius? The positive benefits—known as the halo effect—of launching a car that used less gas and emitted less pollution enhanced Toyota’s brand and helped it sell more of its other cars.
An enhanced shopping experience brings in shoppers. Additional shoppers attract more retail tenants and allow malls to command higher rents.
Enables property managers to send targeted mobile ads to shoppers inside malls and obtain analytics that enhance marketing efforts and profitability.
Making it easier to locate products and stores decreases the time required for shopping. That extra time could be spent purchasing ancillary services (i.e. having lunch) or visiting additional stores in a mall.
Understanding traffic flow helps malls allocate resources more efficiently and optimize lease agreements.
Heat maps help retailers understand traffic flow.
Indoor navigation delivered through voice commands helps visually-impaired shoppers locate stores and products in a shopping mall.
Brings shopping to a new level by pairing indoor navigation with augmented reality and other new technologies. Also helps position malls as forward thinking.
Augmented reality adds information to the real world. For example, retailers can add information about sales and promotions to images captured by a smartphone inside a store.
Helps shoppers exit a mall more quickly if faced with an emergency or fire.
