Technical solutions to manage flows
The German Xplace regulates flow to access the store, relieving the burden on employees and reassuring customers. Sensors record the number of people entering and leaving the market in real time. Based on this, digital signs (based on the principle of traffic lights) at the entrance to the store and voice announcements tell customers whether they can enter or leave. After successful tests, Media Markt and Saturn will deploy this technology in their 430 German stores in early June and then in the Netherlands.
