CACI launches Christmas with data

Christmas is a busy time of year for us all, end of term and school holidays await, endless shopping and present buying, Christmas parties, decorations and that incredible Christmas day dinner!

We work with shopping centres and high-profile brands globally to ensure trade runs smoothly all year round. The holiday period is particularly frantic, with up to 50% of annual trading done at this time. How do we make sure the stores get the desired presents into the hands that are going to unwrap them on the big day? With data of course!

CACI do amazing things with data

We combine knowledge, innovation and enthusiasm for data and everything it can do.

Our bread and butter is helping our customers understand their customers. From detailed demographic profiling, to understanding how people work live and play, we have a unique understanding of how people interact with places. When you walk down the high street, the stores you see are there because the data says that’s where they should be. CACI help those brands make that decision.
