Hurley, United Kingdom – 2 February 2021 – Wireless Logic, a leading global IoT connectivity platform provider, today revealed the crucial role it played in developing a ‘traffic light’ system for Aldi in the UK, in order to manage crowd flow and occupancy in the wake of COVID-19. Delivered by Ocucon, a specialist in security technology solutions, the groundbreaking intelligent occupancy management system has revolutionised the approach to retail through social distancing guidelines.
Ocucon was enlisted to install a system that could effectively manage customer numbers in line with new social distancing guidelines. Ocucon had the technology to deliver the CCTV set-up, but needed Wireless Logic’s support and expertise to eliminate on-site maintenance and manage configuration and support remotely.
Simon concluded: “The system may have been created as a solution to a challenge posed by COVID-19, but it’s not one that’s going to go away any time soon. There is a clear demand from supermarket chains for systems that help manage occupancy and crowd flow, which means more opportunities for businesses like Ocucon. Furthermore, the recent development of the Occupi Dashboard with an application programming interface (API), allows retailers to extract data on a store-by-store basis, providing really valuable business intelligence. We wouldn’t have been able to realise this ambitious project without the support of Wireless Logic, who was able to effortlessly meet our demands and quick turnaround times.”
