A newly launched real time occupancy monitoring and alerts solution will let members of the UK public know if a building is safe to enter, or not.
countIT LIVE, recently launched by technology provider D-Tech International, uses real time data of how many people are in the building to deliver a simple alert to those outside. Safe or Not Safe.
From 15 June, all non-essential shops in England will be allowed to reopen, as announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 26 May. With retail giants John Lewis and Next among those businesses planning to start welcoming customers back to their stores, the question remains whether there will be an appetite among the public to return to shops during the pandemic? According to figures released by consumer analyst Springboard, which reported a 31% rise in UK retail footfall from bank holiday Monday to 1 June, the answer is yes.
The Prime Minister went on to say, “I want people to be confident that they can shop safely, provided they follow the social distancing rules for all premises.” But, even with stores adhering to new guidelines put in place to protect shoppers, how confident will returning shoppers be that they will be able safely social distance upon entering a building?
James Breakell, Managing Director of D-Tech International, believes their new solution can help. He said:
“In such uncertain times, the public may well ask, is this building is open? And is it safe to enter?
“countIT LIVE is a real time occupancy monitoring and alerting solution which gives your customers or users confidence that they can safely enter your facility. Whether it’s a shop, supermarket, pharmacy, or even a public facility, countIT LIVE uses live information of how many people are in your building right now to give people waiting to enter a simple answer of ‘Yes, this building is Safe to Enter’ or ‘No, it is not’.
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us to live under unfamiliar restrictions. The enforcement of measures such as social distancing is crucial for allowing people to continue to perform key functions and responsibilities of daily life while protecting their health and that of the wider general public. We believe countIT LIVE can help with that.”
