GlobalReach Technology, the secure Wi-Fi solutions and services expert, launched a new tool to help manage safe social distancing as venues reopen after lockdown.
Crowd Insights uses existing public Wi-Fi networks to collect anonymous location, volume and movement data, even without user authentication. Pre-set limits identify crowding, triggering alerts to help the venue proactively manage social distancing and keep customers and staff safe.
GlobalReach Crowd Insights uses data from devices and other wearables to monitor, predict, alert and notify with real-time alerts when thresholds are breached. This helps to identify mass gatherings, traffic pinch points, queues, over-capacity that could risk public health, and to find ways to reduce crowding before it becomes a problem.
Alerts, real-time and historic reports are delivered through the Crowd Insights dashboard. The information can also be shown on digital displays. The information can provide long-term understanding of volumes, dwell time and movement, to support security, safety and commercial planning – perhaps opening times for a venue.
