Scanalytics has partnered with Launch Milwaukee to propose a challenge which will be held during Launch Milwaukee Weekend. The Scanalytics Challenge is an opportunity for participants to create an innovative experience in a physical application using the SoleSensor, an intelligent floor sensor that captures analytics on footsteps and activates “triggered” actions through the SDK platform. Those who participate will have the opportunity to become a solution in the Scanalytics Marketplace, and the first place winner will be the featured solution at our next trade show exhibit. Each time a client selects your integration, Scanalytics pays you a royalty for the service, including revenue on recurring subscription cycles.

A customer’s excursion through a store is almost never on a whim. Practically all customers in every store are there for one reason: they need something. Whether it’s a set of headphones or new pair of socks, consumers are driven by their need for a certain product or service. Most consumer goods industries have a physical presence which plays a major role in the purchasing journey, and now, even with the increasing popularity of online shopping, the purchase process remains remarkably the same. Although it may seem like a simple process, buying a product is no quick decision.
So what is the purchasing journey? How can customers use this process to become a more informed buyer? The answer is surprisingly simple.
With the recent launch of our REFLEX platform, we thought we’d have a little fun this fall and throw the town a Hardware Hackathon to test out new “triggering” applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). As an advantageous startup, most of our team members have participated or contributed to a hackathon in the past, so we put our heads together and mapped out a solid weekend of hacking over September 12th-14th in Milwaukee, WI.
A little background on the host, Scanalytics provides consumer insights to businesses through proprietary floor sensors that analyze foot traffic to identify patterns and trends in behaviors. Our intelligent mat can understand how many people are coming in and out of a room, what their paths look like or how long it takes them to approach a product, among many other valuable insights. To keep the innovation moving forward, we opened up our API to allow integration with existing people-counting technologies to help complement and engage within the industry. After experiencing early success in this experiment, we started connecting anything and everything that collects information to the platform to enable “smart” interactivity.
