What is mass mobile data?

Mass mobile data is generated from cell phone data. It tracks the location of a device and provides current, reliable data on a person’s movements.  

By creating a geo-fence (a virtual geographic boundary) around your gas station or convenience store, you can pinpoint your own customers and reveal in-depth customer insight. 

What can mass mobile data reveal?

A Mass Mobile Data (MMD) report won’t give you personally identifiable information on your customers, it protects their names and won’t give you their contact details — but it will provide rich insight that will propel your customer-centric strategy. 

You’ll find out:  

  • Where your customers travel from 
  • Where they live, work, and play  
  • In-depth demographic information 
  • Which lifestyle segments they’re a part of 
  • Where they go to before and after visiting your site 

How to utilize mass mobile data in gas stations and convenience stores

Kalibrate can run a Mass Mobile Data report on any physical location in the United States. This includes gas stations and convenience stores that you own, and your competitor sites.  

New to industry sites can analyze other stores in the vicinity, or their closest competitor to gain an understanding of who their ideal customers are and when they are likely to come by. This gives gas station owners a head start on their competitors by removing the initial learning curve and allowing them to set successful strategies from day one.  

Mature sites can get in-depth customer insight to develop a deeper understanding of how visits to their site fits into a customer’s overall journey, and to identify opportunities to optimize the customer experience (and their spend in store). 

Understanding your busiest periods

A Mass Mobile Data (MMD) report from Kalibrate will show you when visitors are entering your site, broken down by hour, day, week, and month.  

This can help you to confidently decide on daypart strategies for pricing or promotions, as well as setting informed staff rotas so you always have the optimal number of staff.  

By cross-referencing visitor data with your own transaction data to uncover time periods when the store is busy with customers that are not spending — you can then identify strategic changes to increase basket sizes in these already busy periods. 

For sites that are considering daypart pricing strategies or daypart promotional campaigns, the MMD report will provide you with reliable data to inform confident business choices.
