Why Incorporate Quantzig’s Market Basket Analysis Solutions?

Market basket analysis analyzes point of sale data to identify products that are frequently purchased together or in a sequence. A market basket analysis creates “baskets” of the item combinations and calculates the strength of the item correlations to equip organizations with the tools to predict customer purchasing habits, analyze the effectiveness of strategic initiatives, and ultimately increase their revenue. Market basket analysis is one of the key techniques used by large retailers to uncover associations between items.

To put it another way, market basket applications allow retailers to identify relationships between the items that people buy. With the help of this market basket application tool, not only can retailers identify target markets and current retail market trends, they can also enhance their customer-base by creating, delivering, and communicating a superior customer experience. Market basket application allows retailers to easily and promptly look at the retail market size, current retail market trends, quantity, and value of the customers’ market basket to understand the pattern in which products are purchased.
