Xovis launches cloud-based offers to rethink people flow


As an international market leader for intelligent people flow solutions in retail, airports and transportation, we are proud to launch our newest cloud technology products. In a world faced with the pitfalls of pandemics, 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 integration partners with our new cloud-based offers. Through Xovis HUB, a cloud-based partner platform, integration 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. Through Xovis FLOW, partners will be able to provide users with an integrated software as a service (SaaS) solution for understanding people flow in real time. FLOW gathers visitor data from Xovis sensors in the cloud with options to expand analytics.

“Introducing these cloud-based offers to the 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 solutions and with FLOW and HUB, we will service our integration partners as a one-stop shop. We want to take people flow management to the next level by making our high-precision sensors easy to use.”

Xovis believes in freedom of movement, and that all people should expect safety, comfort and privacy as they move about. “Our success is based on high-precision 3D sensors with artificial intelligence applications which are designed to respect data privacy. 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 Fähndrich. 

"By understanding the data gathered by FLOW, users can make well-informed, data-driven decisions to optimize operations and enhance the customer experience,” explains Anne Wyder, Managing Director of Retail. “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."  

Xovis FLOW provides three unique modules. With the starter dashboard entitled Visitor Essentials, features include visitor statistics, location benchmarking, gender detection, desktop and tablet WebApp, unlimited number of users, email reporting, data export and uptime and support. Two add-ons are also offered: Store Professional and Live Occupancy. Store Professional offers revenue statistics, conversion rates, AI staff exclusion and store benchmarking. Live Occupancy provides live occupancy monitoring, an entrance screen with URL, AI mask detection and live alerts.
