CMX 10.2 Analytics – The Path Analysis Widget

gmcgarryWritten by Ian Mc Garry, CMX Software Engineer

The release of CMX 10.2 is just around the corner and brings with it the new Path Analysis Widget. Path Analysis provides a new way of investigating your data. Not only can you view the amount of visitors to an area, now you can see how they got there and where they went afterwards. To help introduce you, we’ve put together some simple but beneficial use cases outlining its utility and power.

Path Analysis Use Case – Quantifying Instant Customer Attraction

Certain areas within a location, such as casinos, will hold an expected or sometimes unexpected instant attraction (visitation from when people enter the location) to visitors. This can be deliberate or natural depending on the circumstances and nature of the location. For example a casino desires to maximize the time visitors spend in the gambling section of their location and so the layout of the building as well as signage, advertising etc. will aim to increase the instant attraction. From when people enter the reception of the Casino it hopes that they will immediately visit the Gambling Area. Using CMX Analytics Path Analysis we can easily quantify the instant allure of an area from when people enter the building. Read More »

CMX 10.2 Analytics – The Correlation Widget

gmcgarryWritten by Ian Mc Garry, CMX Software Engineer

The release of CMX 10.2 is coming soon and with introduces the improved Correlation Widget. Allowing you to view the relationship between areas, Correlation is a powerful tool. To help introduce you to the widget we’ve put together some simple but beneficial use cases outlining its utility and power.

Correlation Use Case – Identifying the Relationship Between Areas

Certain areas within a location, such as shops, should have a natural interaction or correlation with each other. This can be due to their related nature, ease of accessibility or even close proximity with one another. For example in a mall we may have a flower shop and a card shop. A strong correlation between these shops is expected due to the well-known fact that flowers and gift cards go hand-in-hand. Using the Correlation Widget we can quantify this relationship and prove or even disprove our theory.

We set up a simple correlation widget that looks at the data for shops last week. Setting our Card Shop as the focus allows us to then see the Correlation between it and the other shops in the building.


From this chart we can see Read More »
