This time, we conducted a fact-finding survey on the management decisions of actual stores for 101 managers and executives of companies that are developing multiple stores.

First, 64.4% of business owners of companies that are developing multiple stores answered that it is important to promote DX in retail and physical stores. The most common reason for this was “because cost reduction by improving operational efficiency is necessary” at 67.7%, followed by “because management decisions using data are necessary” at 61.5%. In addition, “labor shortage” and “changes in the market environment” were also mentioned as reasons why DX promotion is important.

Next, when asked about “collecting customer behavior data” at corporate stores, 67.3% answered that it was carried out. In addition, data collection of customer behavior is carried out in the “registration area”, which is the largest at 41.2%. As for the data content, “Visitor attribute information” was the most answered at 70.6%.

Finally, 73.2% of managers want to promote “management improvement” of retail and physical stores by utilizing AI technology and data. In addition, when asked what they expect from the “management improvement”, “staffing to optimize staff service” was 55.4%, “most effective advertisement transmission” was 48.6%, and “based on customer migration data”. “Optimization of display shelves” was 43.2%. In addition, there were voices such as “degree of return visit” and “efficiency of simple work”.

In retail and physical stores, purchasing and billing are becoming more digital, but in terms of customer behavior, data can only be collected in some areas and information, and even if data is collected, it is “optimal.” In many cases, it does not lead to management decisions such as “display timing of various advertisements” and “staffing that optimizes staff services.” I think it will be necessary to make good use of video cameras, AI technology, and data in order to promote the “management improvement” that many companies are motivated to do.
