Many schools and universities have facilities beyond the classrooms, like dormitories, cafeterias, convention halls, sports complexes, libraries. Access the daily traffic numbers to each of these facilities with our People Counting system and get benefits, as Space & Staff Managements.
Throughout the day, crowds of students and personnel members move around places between classes. With a flow of visitors that is continually fluctuating, it isn't easy to keep track of your audience. Without knowing how many people there are, it is impossible to know how many resources are needed to accommodate them.
Vemcount functions enable a sensor to track carefully the number of people coming in and out of a specific entrance – or even all entries – and quickly provide up-to-the-minute data.
These sensors send back those data to Vemcount consolidated into an insightful report with the exact number of people visiting a determined area in a given period.
Suppose there is a situation where the students need to evacuate the school. In that case, the administrators can rely on the video surveillance system's data to tell the firemen how many students entered the school that morning and how many exited the building during the evacuation.
Advanced analytics can further support people counting efforts by keeping track of how many people are supposed to be in a given location and sending an alert when, for example, the school auditorium is approaching maximum capacity, or there is a violation of the fire code.
▶︎ Space Management – Measure which areas students use the most
Identifying the most-traveled doors and hallways in the building is advantageous when placing informational fliers, kiosks, or help desks for new students. Also, distinguishing which areas of the student union receive the most trafficking tells you where to concentrate the money.
It may be the cafeteria; it may be the library. Whichever the area, if it is heavily-traveled, it is likely to return the money spent on it.
▶︎ Staff Management – Optimize employee placement for peak and non-peak times
Managers can calculate building hours and personnel needs based on actual data reports from Vemcount, rather than making estimations. Many student centers can't afford to pay several employees on the same shift, and even if they can, they shouldn't have to. With Vemcount, educational services can estimate the correct number of employees for peak and non-peak times on an average day – and on the not-so-average days, too. When hosting well-attended events – sometimes several at once – the building may need more staffing. The data generated by Vemcount helps you predict and prepare for special occasions.
▶︎ Budget Allocation – Justify requests for additional resources
With an increased volume of students using a fixed amount of resources, a school's budget is always tight. Employing the Vemcount system and its sensors placed in strategic areas, you will pick up on the increase in trafficking. This data ensures you will not cut the wrong resources when making budget reallocation.
We wanted a central solution that could cover all of our department stores in Denmark. We wanted the same system and a hosted solution but managed from one place. It was also a requirement from the beginning that the solution was able to count very accurately. And it has worked perfectly.
Our data shows that the most critical time in relation to distance is the moment where customers pick up groceries from the basket and put them on the conveyer belt.

We’ve been satisfied with our collaboration with Vemco Group A/S, which has shown us that it’s possible to reliably and professionally monitor pedestrians on our shopping street. We see a great potential in developing and running our city better based on the insights that Vemco Group A/S has given us.

Over the years, we’ve tested a handful of different people counting solutions, which unfortunately have disappointed us at every turn. Finally, with help from Vemco Group, we’ve found the right solution. A valid and good quality solution ensuring that we can optimize our business and measure the performance of our stores...
