We look forward to showing you everything we planned for the future!

retail analytics

It’s no surprise that we at Doorcounts are big fans of retail analytics. And as it turns out, we are not the only ones.

A recent report found that the worldwide retail analytics industry is expected to reach $23.8 billion by 2027. The major jump in market size is mostly driven by retailers growing adoption of new technologies such as AI and retail clouds that help better predict what is to come in the retail industry.

In 2020, the software segment accounted for the largest share of the market with many retailers starting to utilize retail software to follow up with every customer and better understand the customer experience.

If you are already a Doorcounts customer, then it is more likely than not that you understand the power of using analytics to make better business decisions.

Cognitive bias and the “Backwards Brain Bicycle”

Check out this video from Smarter Every Day about the “Backwards Brain Bicycle” and how our brains work when we have to relearn something we think we already know.

It’s especially meaningful, given the speed of change businesses are experiencing due to the convergence of technology and its impact on human potential.

When something is easy, people say it’s like riding a bike. For some people, learning to ride a bike was not easy, but once they learned how to ride a bike the saying applied.

That’s until things change and you must unlearn something familiar and relearn something new.

This is where cognitive bias kicks in…

According to, “A cognitive bias is a systematic error in thinking that occurs when people are processing and interpreting information in the world around them, and it affects the decisions and judgments that they make.”
