Industry leaders come together to respond to the need for easier “wide-angle views” of venue analytics and KPI’s.
March 23, 2020-BlueFox announces their partnership with InReality to make it easier for venues and stores to get multi-dimensional, sensor-based analytic views from one platform. InReality’s venue analytics platform harnesses multiple sensor technologies and data streams into one simple view of the most important metrics and KPI’s. BlueFox provides real-time customer presence and foot traffic data via a patented mobile smart sensing technology.
Guillaume de La Tour, Founder and CEO at BlueFox, commented, “It’s becoming increasingly important to be able to collate foot traffic data into dashboards that can present multiple metrics and KPI’s. We know that our patented technology for counting people by sensing smartphones solves big challenges for venues and stores. But we also know that they need key KPI’s that don’t involve us. With InReality, we can make it easy for them to get everything they need to view from one simple interface, all with flexible monthly subscription options.”
“InReality’s alignment with BlueFox makes so much sense for both our companies and our channel partners,” said Ron Levac, InReality’s CEO. “Their technology is unique, patented, privacy prudent, needs no special app, login, or beacon, and the accuracy rate is an impressive 95%+. As we continue to grow our ecosystem, they’re an ideal mobile data partner, and we’re excited to make them available as part of our sensor arsenal.”
“We’re in such an interesting time for both DOOH and retail,” adds InReality’s newly-appointed Chief Strategy Officer, Laura Davis-Taylor. “We’re finally giving out-of-home venues the respect that they deserve as a potent media channel, but it’s time that we made it easier to prove out and optimize the things that we do inside of them. We love BlueFox because of the ease to do this, but also the accuracy.”

Founded in 1995, InReality began as an in-store design and display company working with brands and retailers to create engaging in-store shopping experiences. After decades of working to optimize the in-store experience, InReality recognized the changes in the retail landscape and made the shift to venue analytics so that they could better serve their clients and the market.
InReality’s SaaS platform makes generating the most important place-based metrics easy. They do it by harnessing most any IoT tracking, measurement, and influencing technologies into one simple platform that produces only the KPI’s needed most, then enabling predictive or personalized responses. With it, venues can both prove and improve their “phygital” touch points across multiple locations at scale, but without the complexity or limitations of multiple sensors and disparate dashboards. Owners and retailers make their spaces more meaningful for their patrons, and brand advertisers finally get the analytic ammunition they need to optimize their strategies and defend their marketing spend.
