NoviSign takes social distancing to the next level with digital entrance barriers using digital signage technologies
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, APRIL 24, 2020 — With the advent of COVID-19, retail stores are looking to stay operational while complying with government regulations. A new solution to help stores enforce social distancing is NoviSign’s new Stop & Go digital signage.
By simply adding screens to your store’s entrance you can easily set-up cost-effective, digital entrance barriers. These barriers can be used to control the store’s traffic, helping public venues adhere to local social distancing regulations. From managing the total number of customers inside of the store to enforcing 6′ apart rules, venues can use NoviSign’s ‘Stop & Go’ digital signage to provide their customers with safe and secure shopping environments.
Store Traffic Control Made Easy
So how exactly does the ‘Stop & Go’ social distancing signage work? Let’s go into a quick scenario; a customer leaves your store and they are 6 feet away from the exit. Using your mobile device, as a gate controller, you select the green ‘Go’ button and the message on the TV or kiosk (sort of gate traffic light) at your stores entrance instantly switches from ‘Stop’ to ‘Go’, indicating to the customer outside of your store that is ok to enter.
A Social Distancing Communications Tool
In addition to the ‘Stop & Go’ control, the screen’s content can be set to display any combination of notifications and advertisements when the traffic control media is not being displayed (it can display also alongside the control media). Examples of other communications that can be displayed on the screens include:
- Spot-lighting carry-out menus and daily specials
- Internal company announcements and notifications
- Store promotions, sales and customer service related updates
- Cleaning and sanitization procedures for shopping carts
Easily Change from your Phone
Using a mobile phone, tablet or computer, store management can monitor in-store traffic and as customers come and go, management can simply hit the “Stop & Go” buttons from your device. When either button is hit the content on the TV, changes instantly to what you selected. This technology is easy-to-use and takes only minutes to setup!
