The Search for Measurement's Holy Grail: Complete Consumer Purchase Behavior, Preferences, and Intent from

a Super Panel of Millions



Ken Cassar

SVP and Principal Analyst




Jeff Bezos just topped the billionaire's list, yet e-commerce measurement has only recently risen to the daunting challenge of measuring the channel upon which he built his empire. There's no question that e-commerce is the future of retail. Less understood is how e-commerce can be the catalyst for understanding consumer behavior better than ever before. The key is in the e-receipt, which allows the tracking of consumer purchasing across retailers and product categories, over time, on a massive scale.


In this session, Slice Intelligence will provide a primer on the use of electronic receipt data to track all purchase behavior--from toothpaste to Tesla, with a focus on the unique measurement challenges and opportunities the methodology presents
