Shopping center innovation to deliver a hyper-personalized visitor experience
Barcelona, June 28, 2018 – Real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield Spain is introducing the Infinity digital platform, developed exclusively with the proptech giant Boostcom and based on its technology “The Mall Performance Cloud”, with the aim of deeply knowing the behavior and consumption habits of shopping center visitors in Spain and improving their shopping experience.
Through visitors’ interaction with the center itself and technology such as geolocation or Smart Data, the platform collects, analyzes and processes information about the client, and “returns” relevant and “intelligent” information. As the data is processed through algorithms, the shopping center has the possibility to communicate with its visitors in real time, send them hyper-segmented and personalized information, anticipate behavior and future purchases and, ultimately, make the shopping experience completely tailor-made.
The launch of this tool, unique in the Spanish market and based on the “customer-centric” philosophy, places Cushman & Wakefield Spain at the forefront of innovation in the management of shopping centers. According to Rafael Mateu, Partner and Director of Retail Asset Services for Spain, “this project allows us to unite the physical and online areas of the shopping center and create unprecedented engagement with visitors, making the shopping experience beneficial for both the clients of the center and the retailers”. Through this tool, the consultancy expects to know, in a mere 5 years, 60% of visitors of the shopping centers that it manages in Spain.
