State-of-the-art technology to help you grow your business.
What are People Counters?
People counters, sometimes called traffic counters or door counters, are electronic devices installed near the entrances and exits of businesses. They scan customers as they arrive and depart, providing detailed analytics to managers and owners.
Many kinds of businesses can benefit from using a people counter to measure traffic, including:
- The number of people who enter your store (or any designated area within it)
- Occupancy and store density by the hour or by the day
- Number of sales transactions
Looking at your daily sales numbers may give you a partial picture of what’s happening in your store. Our people counters take it a step further, providing you with detailed analytics to help you examine every aspect of your business.
Benefits of Using a People Counter
Business might be good, but it can be better if you use a traffic counter to gather data and analyze your business performance. The right people counter will provide accurate information about traffic in your business.
How can the data collected by your people counter help your business? Here are some of the things you can do when you partner with CountWise.
- Get a handle on your store’s traffic flow. If you’ve ever experienced a time when you were over or under-staffed, then you know how important it is to optimize your employee scheduling and staffing. Our high-quality people counters can help you pinpoint the days and times when you get the most traffic, so you can staff appropriately.
- Improve patron satisfaction. Regardless of what industry you’re in, customer satisfaction is an essential metric for the success of your business. Using accurate people counting technology can help you improve customer satisfaction in every area. For example, you can evaluate the layout of your store to make it easier for customers to find what they need.
- Fine-tune your marketing. If you have a brick-and-mortar business, you probably run ads and promotions to increase traffic to your store. One of the best ways to evaluate the success of a campaign is to measure the number of people who walk through your doors. When you don’t see an increase in traffic after you run an ad, it’s a sign that you should rethink the campaign for better results.
- Increase your sales. Every business wants to improve its bottom line. Using an accurate people counter can help you to streamline your business operations, cut costs, improve your marketing, and ultimately, to increase your sales and profits.
At CountWise, we put our clients’ needs first. We’ve created the best and most accurate people counters around because we know that accuracy matters.
Types of People Counters
At CountWise, we recognize that for a people counter to be effective, it must suit your location. There are various styles of people counters and we offer many of them, including:
- Overhead sensors
- Horizontal beam-type sensors
- Uni-directional door counters
- Bi-directional door counters
- Wireless technology
The type of people counter you choose will depend on many factors. Here’s how they work:
- Overhead sensors are mounted on the ceiling and send a beam downward to count people as they enter your building.
- Horizontal beam sensors are mounted on either side of the door and send beams across the space to count entrants.
- Uni-directional people counters typically count people entering and leaving without distinguishing between the two. You can divide the total count by two to calculate the number of customers in any given period.
- Bi-directional counters differentiate between incoming and outgoing visitors, making it easy to determine how many people have visited your store.
- Wireless technology includes battery-operated people counters that do not require an outlet to operate properly.
Our team of experts will help you evaluate your needs and choose the right people counting technology for your space.
How to Choose the Right People Counter
We can help you select the CountWise product that’s suited to your needs.
Some of the factors that may impact your decision include:
- The size of your entrance. Horizontal beam sensors work best on narrow entrances. While technically they can work on entrances up to 15 feet wide, people walking in clusters may not be counted accurately.
- The type of door you have. Horizontal sensors don’t work well with doors that swing in because the door itself may block the beams from counting people as they enter or depart.
- Network connections. Digital overhead counters require a network connection to the sensor in the ceiling to work properly.
- If you have the kind of store where patrons browse near the entrance, then an overhead detector will do a better job of capturing people even if they stop to look at a product or display.
- Your reporting needs. If you require only daily counts, than a uni-directional counter may be what you need. However, if you need hourly counts, then a bi-directional people counter is necessary.
Our team of experts is here to help evaluate your needs and help you choose the right technology for your space and goals.
