Horsforth-based digital solutions provider UX Global (UXG) has launched a bespoke digital signage solution to help retailers measure the number of in-store customers once they open when the lockdown eases. Called Auto-Q, the occupancy management system, also allows retailers to advertise key information to customers while they are waiting for their turn to enter.
The technology uses 3D sensors installed at store entrance and exit points, which counts the number of people inside the store at any given time. The system automatically pushes alerts to staff to notify them if the store has reached capacity thresholds.
UXG director Alistair Wright said: "In response to Covid-19, retailers are now required to adapt their stores like never before, with their priority rightly being the safety of their employees and customers.
"Our Auto-Q technology has been created with the latest occupancy requirements in mind. It offers an accurate, cost-effective, and reliable alternative to manual counting, enabling retailers to manage occupancy and queuing customers safely, efficiently and effectively, whilst allocating staff to other important store operators.
"As with all of our solutions, the system can be designed and installed to meet bespoke requirements and integrated into existing systems and technologies."
