Solution 1:

Driving Foot Traffic with Better App Relevance

While quick service restaurants have seen a surge in app downloads in recent years, more often than not, these apps are hardly used by the consumer. In fact, apps suffer a 95% deletion rate in the first three months of download alone.



How can QSRs and fast casual restaurants maintain app relevancy and help drive more foot traffic to their restaurants?



Understanding customers’ behaviors and preferences are key to delivering actionable messaging that drives foot traffic and improve app relevence. Bluedot gives marketers the tools to utilize first-person location data directly from their customers’ mobile devices, identifying their intentions and experiences with precision.

Solution 3:

Robust Customer Profiles for Strategic Decisions

80% of consumers indicated they are more likely to do business with a company if it offers personalized experiences. And to effectively personalize experiences, you need both their digital behaviors AND real-world location footprint.



How can QSRs build more meaningful CRM profiles, pairing online and offline behaviors for a 360-degree view of their patrons?



Learn your customers’ physical foot traffic (and driving) patterns. Identify patrons who linger at your QSR location with family, those who walk by your location every day without stopping, and even those who visit your competitors. With these insights, fast casual restaurants have rich profiles and relevant trends to make insightful campaign decisions, conduct store planning, and more.
