It is no secret that most brick-and-mortar retail spaces have suffered an immense loss of business due to the government-imposed COVID-19 restrictions and many innovators have tried to mitigate this—either through more mindful practices and consistent sanitation or with tech-enhanced devices such as digital sign solutions.
A leader in this space, BrightSign, has "introduced a variety of products to enforce both social distancing and touchless interactive experiences." For example, one is a sign that counts the phones of guests as they enter to determine how many people are in the building. In addition, the innovation displays various messages, based on the number and in real-time. A corresponding message is display to direct consumers who want to enter— 'Please wait, the store is at its maximum capacity now' or 'Please come in, we are only at 38% of maximum occupancy,."
