Can Artificial Intelligence make your space safer after COVID-19?

As businesses cautiously reopen after COVID-19 closures, the health and safety of their employees and customers will be top priority. Adequate social distancing, proper mask utilization, and optimal air quality and ventilation will be critical to keeping people safe. However, getting the metrics to achieve these results is an especially difficult challenge for many business owners.

“Open for Business” is much trickier now than before COVID-19. It involves much more than just unlocking a door, switching on the lights, or flipping over the CLOSED sign. Creating a safe, healthy space will help gain the confidence of nervous employees and wary customers. But getting the precise, actionable data you need to build your reopening strategy isn’t easy—or is it?

Being able to accurately determine how many people have entered and exited a space, who is (and isn’t!) wearing masks in required areas, and whether social distancing guidelines are being met is a critical capability. Falling short at any step in the process can jeopardize safety, expose liability, and force short-term—or permanent—closure.

Getting back in business safely

By using a scalable data platform to inform your COVID-19 reopening strategy, you can create the safest possible space for customers and employees. Armed with real-time data on your physical environment and the activity within it, you’ll be empowered to make the smartest decisions about capacity, HVAC utilization, and physical distancing requirements. This data-driven approach to bringing customers and employees back into workspaces can help you accurately determine safe occupancy and density, social distancing guidelines, and PPE compliance rates.
