Two leaders in the People Counting industry have joined together to provide a wider selection of technology options and excellent customer service. Pittsburgh based company, Traf-Sys Inc, has purchased Walker Wireless to combine their efforts and reach new markets. Traf-Sys Inc has been providing complete people counter systems since 1996 and has specialized in handling large enterprise-level clients such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

Walker Wireless was originally founded in 1986 by Mark Walker as the MWalker company. The company entered the People Counting industry by providing cost-effective, reliable people counter devices to libraries that had a need to provide patron counts in order to quantify and justify funding for buildings and special projects. Over the years, MWalker provided counters to government agencies, colleges and retailers.

In 2002, MWalker started using wireless technology to transmit patron count data from people counting devices to a PC or a PC network. MWalker was then renamed to Walker Wireless LLC.

In 2008, Walker Wireless introduced the ConceptOne sensor family which would be used for environmental and condition monitoring over a WiFi connection. These sensors would be used for health care, food safety and industrial monitoring applications.

In April of 2009, Walker Wireless was purchased by Traf-Sys People Counting Systems and will continue to provide quality people counting devices and environmental monitoring sensors. The cost-effective wireless people counting devices provided by Walker Wireless will be a perfect fit with Traf-Sys People Counting Systems selection of people counters and systems. The environmental monitoring sensors provided by Walker Wireless will also allow Traf-Sys to expand into new markets and opportunities. Together, the companies will be able to provide a greater variety of technologies and even better customer service and support.

Find out how Harley-Davidson uses Traf-Sys People Counting Systems to improve conversion rates

All brick-and-mortar retailers want to attract more customers into their stores and increase the percentage of customers that convert (i.e. purchase merchandise). Before determining this percentage, you must first accurately account for the number of people visiting your stores. Short of having an employee count customers upon entry, automated traffic counting systems are the only accurate way to gather this data. However, the number of customers entering stores needs to be tied to your POS data in order to determine an accurate conversion rate. This is exactly what Harley-Davidson Corporate is offering to its dealers in order to help them drive sales.

iPocket232 connects Traf-Sys controller and software, delivering accurate, near real-time data

Ottawa, Canada, January 30, 2007 – Precidia Technologies Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of Internet Protocol (IP) access devices, announced today that it has teamed with Traf-Sys Inc, a leading provider of people counting systems for large retail chains, malls and other establishments. Deployed in hundreds of retail locations, the iPocket232 works with the Traf-Sys people counting system to transport accurate, up to the minute pedestrian traffic data to merchants, helping them manage shopper traffic in the context of store operations.

The iPocket232, which features RS232 and Ethernet ports, connects to a Traf-Sys MIU controller, transporting the serial data collected by the controller over the customer’s IP network to a Traf-Sys server, where the data can be processed by Traf-Sys software. The iPocket232 offers a simply installed, seamless link between the controller and the software, delivering accurate, up to the minute data to business operators.

Traf-Sys President and General Manager Chris Wadsworth says the linkage provided by the iPocket232 is key: “Our customers look to us for accurate, timely data on entry/exit, as well as diagnostics. With the iPocket232, we can provide this data easily.” Data collected by the Traf-Sys system includes pedestrian traffic entering and exiting each entry, which can be analyzed to provide reporting and forecasting on sales volume per visitor, or predict staffing requirements.

“Traf-Sys is an ideal partner for Precidia,” said Precidia President Deepak Wanner. “Their popular people counting systems leverage the iPocket232 as the bridge between serial equipment and IP networks. This is a key example of the iPocket’s value in delivering accurate, real-time data without replacing or upgrading mission critical equipment.”
