International Market Leader for Intelligent People Flow Solutions NOW Providing Enhanced Retail Visitor Insights in North America

Xovis, an international market leader for intelligent people flow solutions in retail, airports and transportation, is proud to launch their newest cloud technology products. In a post-pandemic world, brick-and-mortar retailers, mass transit and workplaces face an ever-changing and challenging environment when it comes to people flow. As a provider of high precision 3D sensor technology, Xovis is now empowering integrators with its new Xovis FLOW cloud-based offering. This integrated software as a service (SaaS) solution for understanding people flow in real-time gathers visitor data from Xovis sensors with options to expand analytics. Through Xovis HUB, a cloud-based platform, integrator partners will be given all the necessary tools to seamlessly choose and order sensors, plan and maintain the system, thus improving and surpassing customer expectations.

“Introducing FLOW to the retail market is part of Xovis' response towards a new normal in times of COVID-19, adding to the safety and welfare of people on the move worldwide,” says Konstantin Ewald, VP Strategy at Xovis. "From reopening stores to limiting occupancy or managing a more flexible workplace, we see an increasing demand regarding people flow and with FLOW and HUB, we can now service our integration partners as a one-stop shop. FLOW is a beautiful solution to navigate all spaces as our world evolves. We want to take people flow management to the next level by making our high-precision sensors easy to use.”

"By understanding the data gathered by FLOW retailers can make more informed data driven decisions to optimize operations and enhance the customer experience,” explains Nick Delyani, Director of Retail, North America. “People flow data enables stores to benchmark conversion rates and marketing success, manage staff numbers appropriately during peak hours, avoid bottlenecks by guiding visitors into less crowded areas, and enhance product presentation by understanding gender statistics to ultimately improve long-term returns."

All visual data is processed on the sensor, with no images leaving the sensor and no additional hardware required. By rethinking people flow in every application, Xovis FLOW combined with our sensors will improve quality of life and business, while respecting data privacy," says Andreas Faehndrich, CEO of Xovis.

“With a higher demand for people to flow globally, our decision to expand our technology portfolio with the new cloud-based solutions was simple.
