People Counting Benefits for Retail Stores
Determine Your Sales Conversion Rate
Before you can improve any part of your business, you need to first know where you’re starting at. We’ll help you determine your current conversion ratio.
Evaluate Advertising and Promotional Effectiveness
Instantly measure the customer traffic generated from your advertising campaigns, and measure the popularity of new product displays throughout your store.
Optimize Staff Scheduling
If your merchandise has a wide price range, determining your staffing based on sales numbers can be highly inaccurate (e.g. a few customers buying a few high-ticket items vs. many customers buying low costs items). Knowing your traffic levels throughout the week can help you make more educated staffing decisions.
Use Traffic Data To Make Improvements In Multiple Stores
Apply best practices for generating traffic at your most successful stores to your lower performing stores and use this data to supplement your market research activities.
Facility Maintenance and Planning
The proper upkeep of a retail facility says a great deal to its potential customers, yet the timing of everything from display changes to regular restroom cleaning and restocking is just as important. No retailer wants to discourage customers from entering during peak hours. That’s why it’s helpful to schedule maintenance and overall floor management based on accurate shopper counting analysis.
Measure Retail Display Effectiveness
Retailers and brands invest heavily in promotions and in-store displays because they know that reaching customers at the point of decision can make – or break – a sale. But beyond tracking sales of promoted items, how can retailers determine the impact of their displays? By tracking how many customers walk by a display, retailers can determine how effective the display is at attracting customers’ attention in the busy environment of a store.
Whether it’s ongoing, organized theft or simply one-off incidences of shoplifting, a retailer’s bottom line always suffers when crime occurs. Of course, security cameras help, but people who are intent on committing crime will find a security system’s blind spots. Counting systems can help retailers sufficiently staff areas like entrances and fitting rooms, making shoppers aware that the store’s staff is watchful and alert and helps deter criminals looking for an opportunity to shoplift.
