Moving Tactics South Africa has developed a reliable and effective method of counting the number of customers in stores at any given time.

With the spread of Covid-19, several experts predict that we will need to social distance until 2022, and the two metre social distancing rule may very well become part of the ‘new normal’. Moving Tactics’ People Counting Solution has been developed locally to meet the needs of retailers in South Africa. ‘We are proud to bring a contactless, authoritative technology like this one to market. I am confident that retailers who employ technology like this will not only boost their brand but also win over customers with their professionalism and care,’ said Chris Day, Managing Director of Moving Tactics.

Moving Tactics’ People Counting Solution has been created in response to retailers who need to stay compliant with new government regulations pertaining to social distancing so as to ensure that they keep customers safe.

‘The solution combines digital signage with people counting technology that keeps track of the number of people entering and leaving a store and compares that to the store’s actual capacity. This number is then communicated via a digital screen at the entrance to waiting customers and staff, both visually and via a buzzer feature. The stand can also be fitted with a hand sanitiser to create an all-in-one unit. This system provides accurate information and reporting that presents law enforcement with surety, as well as giving customers and staff peace of mind that their health and well-being are a priority.’

Furthermore, the digital screen is an ideal platform for sharing content with waiting customers. The content may include health-related information, promotional advertising or the latest updates on current pandemic regulations.
