Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the past few months have been challenging. New government social distancing regulations have been set and all businesses have to comply with restrictions on the number of visitors in their location. Ensuring health and safety is critical in these uncertain times. To protect both staff and customers, businesses turn to (live) occupancy monitoring. Not only will your staff feel empowered to take care of their duties in a supportive and safe workplace, your customers will know that you are taking their safety seriously.
Ensuring social distance
People counting plays an increasingly important role these days. The most common way to count people is to install counters at a number of entrances or other key points. These counters monitor the number of people passing a specific threshold. There are a number of different methods to count people, including using thermal sensors, 3d stereoscopic counters or infrared beam counters. Evaluate your location to figure out which method is most suitable since all methods have specific pros and cons.
The benefits of people counting
There are many benefits of using people counting systems during, but also after the pandemic. These benefits include:
High quality footfall data
Whether you own a small retail store or manage a large shopping centre, at the heart of every effective business decision lies reliable and accurate footfall data. It is essential to really understand what is going on at your location before you start to take actions accordingly.
