Video-based technology is expected to dominate the people counting system market in the coming years, offering high accuracy during high-volume traffic, ability to detect the direction in which person or shopper is moving, remains unaffected in varying environments of light, heat, shadows, can easily distinguish people from objects and can track continuously through a large area for an extended period of time.
Using retail traffic counting, stores can more efficiently schedule staff and thus increase sales. When shoppers aren’t sure what to buy, and don’t get helpful advice from retail staff, 90% of them leave empty-handed, according to a recent consumer survey. A video retail traffic counter shows hourly, half-hourly or even 5-minute break-down of the number of people entering the store. The counts can be integrated with a workforce management system, making it easy to create better forecasts and staffing schedules
It gets worse. If the 90 percent of shoppers had received the help from shop assistants, 86 percent of them would have purchased even more than planned.
