History of Visitor Counting Applications
With eighteen years of experience understanding our worldwide clients’ visitor counting needs and supporting their systems post-purchase, we are proven leaders. In the beginning, retail was the obvious market for visitor counting systems as a component to conversion ratio is knowing how many people enter a store. Libraries and government facilities were also early adopters for visitor counting technologies as government funding is based on usage statistics. In the digital era, circulation data is no longer a sufficient source for library usage stats because a large portion of patrons are using the facility for purposes other than checking-out materials.
As visitor counter technologies advanced and became easier to use, maintain and install more industries and applications were uncovered. During the 2008 recession, higher-education enrollment increased because many people were out of work and looking to learn a new trade or sharpen their career skills. As a result, universities, libraries and student union facilities realized their need for automated visitor counting solutions to determine actual usage to justify expansions and remodeling.
Post-recession sparked an increase in casino, entertainment and amusement parks and the need to efficiently operate these facilities. SenSource solutions assist in planning floor layouts, placing marketing materials, managing queues and service wait times to improve the user experience at these facilities.
In 2020, as COVID-19 caused worldwide disruption to commerce, education and leisure activities. While essential businesses remained open to the public, the need to count customers became apparent. SenSource responded with a real-time Occupancy Monitoring Solution to help these essential businesses communicate to their staff and customers how many people could enter to remain within capacity limitations. As additional mandates were placed on businesses to require customers and guests to wear face masks, SenSource released its Face Mask Detection System. The automated system relieves the pressure and expense businesses face when employing staff to monitor the entrance and enforce mask mandates.
As SenSource continues to develop and refine advanced features, new products and software, we will continue to see new applications and uses for our system. For the latest news on our offerings, applications and tradeshows visit our blog or follow us on social media.
