Free Webinar: Virtual Reality - The Key to Understanding Shopper Decisions

In the CPG and retail industry, analyzing shopper decision trees are important for both strategic and tactical decisions. Traditionally, they’ve either been created from historical purchase data (household panel data, for example) or attitudinal surveys (card sorting, attribute rankings, or shop-alongs.)
But that is no longer the case! Virtual reality has changed the way shopper research is done. Traditional methods are integrated with data from virtual shopping simulations, providing a deeper understanding of both the attitudes and behavior of the shopper.

Join InContext Solutions’ Rich Scamehorn and Liz Cox for their webinar to learn the latest trends and applications of virtual reality research, and how virtual technology is allowing retailers and manufactures to optimize assortment and eliminate traditional decision tree barriers, such as:

-                       Hard-to-track categories (e.g., instant consumption products, products without UPC codes)
-                       Hard-to-track channels (e.g., Liquor stores, C-stores)
-                       Low purchase frequency categories (e.g., cosmetics, consumer electronics)
-                       Retailer-specific data 
-                       Occasion-based decisions
