BIG Digital launches entranceway monitoring and communication solution to support safe business openings and operations
CANADIAN TECHNOLOGY LEADER BIG Digital Corp. has announced the launch of their SafeChek digital entranceway technology to support the safe opening, reopening and operations of businesses right across North America.
As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to evolve, governments are starting to allow businesses to reopen amid strict new guidelines that will see many companies seeking innovative solutions to protect their workers and the public.
BIG Digital will provide SafeChek at grocery stores, malls, commercial buildings and offices to enable queue management (including wait times and number of people inside), product and service messaging (such as store hours and out-of-stock items) and visitor SafeChek sensors (including mask and fever detection) in order to support best practices for social distancing.
“Our passion and expertise in providing real-time, contextual information to people on the go translates naturally to the solution SafeChek provides today to businesses and consumers” ―Michael Girgis
“Our team launched one of Canada’s first digital signage and safety networks, Onestop Media Group, in the Toronto Transit System in 2005 and later expanded to airports, malls, residential and commercial high-rise networks,” says Michael Girgis, co-founder of BIG Digital, based in Toronto. “Our passion and expertise in providing real-time, contextual information to people on the go translates naturally to the solution SafeChek provides today to businesses and consumers.”
The addition of a SafeChek entrance solution enables businesses to easily and effectively keep track of the number of people in their establishments and comply with physical distancing guidelines
BIG Digital is partnering on the SafeChek project with A1 Innovation Group, a pioneer in people-counting solutions.
“The combination of A1 Innovation’s 25-plus years in people- and vehicle-counting systems and Big Digital’s credibility in transforming commercial areas with real-time digital communications is unmatched in providing technology for today’s circumstances,” says John Plainos, president and CEO of A1 Innovation Group. “We are pleased to provide an industry-first collaboration.”
BIG Digital’s SafeChek entranceway technology allows organizations to maximize safety through people counting systems to control occupancy levels and real-time communication with customers at indoor and outdoor entranceway locations such as malls, retailers, airports, walkways, elevators, project and construction sites. This technology keeps the public informed with important messages on safety as the economy starts to cautiously reopen.
Some of SafeChek entranceway technology’s extra customer communication features include reservation and appointment messaging, out-of-stock items, current wait times and promoted items to help consumers make informed decisions and ease anxieties around visiting or getting back to work in public spaces.
For business owners, key data and analytics provided by SafeChek entranceway technology includes real-time building occupancy, visit duration, frequency and customer traffic which can help support effective pandemic planning and operations.
For 20 years, the BIG Digital team has been a leading North American provider of pop-up and permanent interactive digital technology solutions. The company has supported governments, agencies and brands of all sizes in conceiving, planning and executing world-class digital communications solutions.
