Leveraging one of the largest comprehensive, consistent and categorically accurate collections of anonymized transactional data in the world, Ynext Data is an innovative financial data analytics platform that will help retailers address these challenges and create new opportunities through data-driven insights, including:

  • Where, when and how often consumers shop today
  • How those same anonymized consumers shopped in the past and how they may shop in the future
  • Debit versus credit purchases
  • Web versus in-store spending patterns
  • Detailed, anonymized shopper segmentation, down to the store level

"In this day and age, there's too much at stake for retailers to be left guessing when it comes to setting an effective marketing strategy," said Joe Polverari, chief strategy and development officer of Yodlee and general manager of Ynext.
