WinCounter at a information centre

Counting People

Using WinCounter as a people counter at the entrance to your information or service centre can give you a valuable insight into the times and volumes of people arriving and leaving. This information provides useful data which can be used to determine how busy your information centre is.

An information centre doesn't normally have any easy way to measure how busy it is. Shops can measure sales, but a service centre is often not primarily about selling goods. WinCounter can give you an accurate record of people entering and leaving your centre which is the best indication of usage. You can compare visitor numbers with other data you collect such as sales of items, bookings etc. but the primary performance indicator will generally be the number of visitors.

In some cases funding for an information centre or service centre is allocated based on usage. If this applies, then it is very important that you have a people counter to give you accurate numbers of people using your facility.

Staff Rosters

Because WinCounter stores visitor numbers as well as the times of day they visited, you can use the data to determine the weekdays and times you are busy. This information can be used to adjust your staff rosters so you have the appropriate staff to service your visitors at any time.
