COVID-19’s impact on retail spots, restaurants, and other venues initially halted customers from even entering. But as restrictions begin to lift, businesses will need a way to ensure compliance with re-opening policies that are put in place.
To help these organizations monitor their occupancy levels and ensure compliance with regulations, Genetec, a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, announces a new Occupancy Management Package.
The Occupancy Management Package includes analytics and reporting tools that enable organizations to tap into their security system to count the number of people in a store or similar business area, visualize data and alert employees when occupancy limits are being reached, according to the company.
Audit reports can also be produced to demonstrate a business’ compliance with physical distancing regulations.
With this new package, Genetec says organizations can define policies that adhere to local guidelines for occupancy, and mobilize their operations to limit the risk of transmission by utilizing live occupancy data displayed in clear, graphical ways.
When occupancy limits are being reached, employees who are responsible for monitoring the situation can receive alerts on a mobile device, via email, or on their Security Center dashboard so they can take appropriate action.
“As public-facing organizations get ready to re-open, they are looking for ways to align security measures in adherence with physical distancing regulations to keep their staff and patrons safe,” says Rob Borsch, practice leader – retail and banking at Genetec.
“In order to enforce these strict occupancy rules, they will need to do more than just count the number of people entering their premises – they will need to know how many people are inside a store or restaurant at any given moment, continuously monitor this data, and be able take action when thresholds are reached.”
