inurface Group has launched a brand-new piece of tech to support businesses across the UK to safely open their doors to the public.
The new people management system has been announced in line with the news that from the 15th of June 2020 a number of non-essential shops will be able to open under strict guidance and control, in addition to the essential retailers already operating.
For this to happen safely, all shops will need to carefully consider how they are able to keep people safe, by controlling the flow of people within their stores, in order to comply with new Government measures.
This new tech, developed by inurface Group, removes the need for extra staff to police entrances while controlling the movement of people in and out of stores and communicating this clearly and directly to the customer through digital signage.
Josh Bunce, CEO and Founder of inurface said, “the UK’s retail market is made up of a patchwork of businesses, big and small, and it is vital that post-COVID-19 we don’t lose this unique mixture of retail options and the environment they are capable of creating.
“While supporting the big fish might be where the big money is as a company inurface started small and grew with the support of others. It is because of this that it is vitally important to me that I do all I can to support as many people as I can by providing them with the appropriate technology solutions and the knowledge my business can provide alongside.
“My hope is that UK business will recover, maybe even stronger than before, but for that to happen we need engagement, determination and for people to embrace the options to help make it happen.”
By measuring occupancy as people enter and exit a store, the equipment can estimate waiting time should capacity be reached, accurately detect face masks if needed and be upgraded to include thermal monitoring technology should the vendor require it. The technology is also easily scalable and can be used alone or alongside other systems.
