Public Health Comes First
The new normal is to protect employees and shoppers by limiting the number of people in a retail establishment. Occupancy Signs from RetailFlux will politely alert customers to the number of people in a store and let them know about the wait times. This is an effective way to keep social distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
People in retail businesses want to get back to work and others need to shop for food, clothing, and other items. Retail establishments need the business, but they must limit the number of customers in a store to protect the health of their employees and shoppers. There are no more crowds even if every item is on sale!
Signs that ask customers to wait for a few minutes help everyone. The signs help retailers maintain good relations by thanking customers for their patience and efforts to control the spread of the virus.
Monitoring the Numbers
An effective monitoring system employs an algorithm software program to measure entrances and exits. The software also calculates how long a shopper spends in the store, items purchased, and the cost. It will also notify you if the store has reached maximum occupancy for safe distancing based on the store’s square footage.
Sensors installed at the entrance to the store send live updates to employees and customers. It allows the customer to see how many people are in the store or the percentage of occupancy. The signs can use the standard green light for a go and red light to stop. It is not necessary for the store manager to station an employee outside the store to detain customers if the store is full.
While people are anxious to return to a more normal lifestyle without being forced to stay home, they are aware of the dangers of contagion. People are wearing masks and taking the precautions necessary to stay six feet apart. They will understand the need to wait for entry into your store. They may prefer to wait in their vehicles or in spaced lines.
