    Apps - Branch InsightsBranch Insights

    Branch Insights tracks cardholders’ use across various branches in a single library system. The analysis provides insight into where and how individual consumer types are engaging the library system, so branches can tailor the materials, programs, services and outreach at the branch level.

    Patrons are classified into three categories based on which branches they use: only their home branch with the shortest drive time from the patron’s residence, their home branch and at least one non-home branch, or one or more non-home branches. The analysis begins with an overall map of all branch library locations, home branch patrons, and multi-branch patrons. The analysis then matches patron records to the Experian Mosaic lifestyle characteristics. Reports can also be broken down to the branch level with a set of maps and Mosaic segmentation reports for each branch.
