Cross-channel analytics is a business analytics process wherein multiple sets of data from different channels or sources are linked or housed together and then analyzed in order to provide customer and marketing intelligence that the business can use. This can provide insights into which paths the customer takes to conversion or to actually buy the product or avail of the service. This then allows for proper and informed decision making to be made.
Cross-channel analytics seeks to understand which paths or channels combine to drive customer conversion. This includes understanding what paths are popular within and across channels and finally provide detailed analysis of specific visitor paths.
