How can people counting help with workforce scheduling?
Although horizontally placed beam-break systems are available, these can have some very limited capabilities that just can’t deliver the data that end-users need.
Businesses need to respond to the needs of their customers, so an objective measure of when their customers need help is a huge bonus to planning workforce scheduling.
Sometimes customers need one to one assistance to make their purchase choices, and for stores with this problem a way of measuring trends and giving an exact number to the volumes of visits to the store means that you can prepare the right number of staff in advance.
Similarly, if you want to provide great service as efficiently as possible, you need to understand levels of demand. Your cleaning teams can be scheduled for areas with higher footfall, leaving more quiet areas for later.
