By providing insight into how many people occupy given spaces throughout the working day, occupancy counters are helping businesses use their space efficiently and welcome their employees safely back to work.
Rethinking the way businesses use space
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about dramatic changes in the way people work, with an emphasis on flexibility and digital collaboration.
While some employees have returned to work, others continue to work from home on a full-time basis. Many more have adopted flexible working schedules that involve working from home and the office.
With ever-changing work schedules and new requirements for safety precautions, businesses of all types are rethinking how they use space.
How occupancy counters are helping businesses find a new normal
Occupancy counters record the number of people entering and exiting a space, giving business managers valuable insight into exactly how room is being used. By providing real-time and historical data, occupancy counters enable better data-driven decisions regarding safety procedures and space allocation in workplaces.
During the pandemic, the responsibility of enforcing social distancing fellon the shoulders of businesses. Occupancy counters are helping to ensure the ongoing safety of personnel and remain relevant in a post-pandemic era.
One of the most effective safety measures during the pandemic has been to limit the number of people allowed to occupy a space at a given time. Occupancy counters provide a simple and cost-effective solution to monitor this.
By automatically counting the number of people occupying a space – whether a shop floor, conference room or an office building – occupancy counters provide accurate real-time measurements of people density. This data makes it easy for businesses to control room occupancy and ensure employee safety without increasing operational costs.
Efficient use of space
As employees work from home, return to work in an office, or adopt flexible working schedules, many businesses are struggling to answer the question of how much space they really need.
Occupancy counters can eliminate guesswork and provide clear, quantitative data on how effectively space is being used. This data helps businesses assess whether their premises are appropriately sized and make better decisions regarding staff scheduling and resource allocation.
Occupancy counters enable business managers to:
- Discover underutilized spaces
- Prevent overcrowding
- Maximize space efficiency
