Rich retail analytics

User analysis and control

A detailed traffic report page identifies web sites shoppers access most frequently and reports browsing time spent on each. Track users' locations in large retail environments and monitor employee scanner or POS devices. Throttle bandwidth for high-bandwidth apps, and even block access to undesired sites, such as competitors' or online stores.
