Although Black Friday and Christmas are still a few months away, it is time for retail stores to start prepping for the high sales season with additional staffing and inventory. This time between now and then will pass quickly and you do not want to wait until the last minute to have your store ready for the crowds that are going to be coming with their wallets and purses open.
All retail store owners and operators both love and hate this time of year. You love it because of the amount of sales your locations will make, but hate it because of the additional staffing and work that needs to be monitored. Wouldn’t you like it to be a little easier?
Just recently Walmart announced the implementation of a system to help them with peak hour traffic counting and with this system in place the ability to staff appropriately. They did this to improve customer service and maximize sales opportunities. The system is being put in place now to get this going before the holiday season to maximize the profits of the upcoming buying season.\
No matter what your feelings are about Walmart, as a retail owner or operator you should take note of what they are doing and follow their lead.
Counting traffic, knowing sales conversions, and optimizing staffing is important to any retail store no matter what time of year it is, but even more so during the holiday season. A retail traffic counter will ensure that all of these business operations are optimized so you will make as much as you possibly can during this busy time of year.
The Trax Visual Proof 2 Camera Based Store Traffic Counter System is the only one of it’s kind. All other traffic counters use infrared camera technology or smartphone counting which do not give accurate counts or with smartphone technology can actually drive away customers.
