According to Forrester research, 53% of online shoppers in the USA are deal seekers, and spend over $2,000 annually on the internet. Statistics also suggest that 91% of in-store footfalls are influenced by online promotions. The first two contributions from eInfochips under the MagNet initiative will improve productivity for promotional campaigns, and reduce dependency on coupon-sites for deal uptake. Retailers can also automate schedules for customized daily offers and showcase countdown timers to drive in-store footfall.
