Sensormatic Turkey deployed the RetailNext solution early in 2016 as Markafoni, one of the largest online retailers in Turkey, opened its first-ever brick-and-mortar store. Using IoT retail analytics, Markafoni analyzed store traffic and the capture rate of shoppers around the store, shoppers’ gender and age range demographics, areas of the store most visited, routes shopper navigate within the store, engagement with product displays and fixtures, conversion rate and more. Through this analysis, Markfoni develops and executes continuous improvement strategies to increase shopper satisfaction and return on investment, and in just six months has reduced staffing expenses 17 percent while increasing revenue over five-fold.
“RetailNext’s rapid global growth is not only a testament to the company’s world class team and industry standard platform, but also to its valued and trusted network of channel partners,” said Alexei Agratchev, co-founder and chief executive officer of RetailNext. “Sensormatic Güvenlik Hizmetleri’s comprehensive understanding of the retail segment in Turkey and the region leads to value-added solutions for retailers’ most pressing opportunities, and the well-deserved recognition of the Gamerchangers Turkey 2016 Impact Award only further validates our successful channel relationship.”
