Abstract: front page image
(EN)A customer-device interface interacts with customer devices proximal to a retail shopping facility to thereby receive from the customer's device a first unique identifier. A control circuit operably couples to the customer-device interface. The control circuit accesses mobile analytics information regarding locations of customer devices and identifying information for the customer devices comprising a second unique identifier that is different from the first unique identifier. By then also accessing identifying information for customers of the retail shopping facility the control circuit uses the first identifier, the second unique identifier, and the identifying information for customers of the retail shopping facility to correlate the second unique identifier with a particular corresponding customer.
(FR)Selon l'invention, une interface client-dispositif interagit avec un dispositif client à proximité d'une installation de vente au détail pour recevoir du dispositif client un premier identifiant unique. Un circuit de commande est couplé de manière fonctionnelle à l'interface client-dispositif. Le circuit de commande accède à des informations d'analyse mobile concernant les emplacements des dispositifs clients ainsi qu'à des informations d'identification pour les dispositifs clients comprenant un second identifiant unique qui est différent du premier identifiant unique. En accédant ensuite aux informations d'identification des clients de l'installation de vente au détail, le circuit de commande utilise le premier identifiant, le second identifiant unique ainsi que les informations d'identification des clients de l'installation de vente au détail pour corréler le second identifiant unique avec un client correspondant particulier.
