The Occupancy Monitor tracks bi-directional movement at entrances and exits by the minute to accurately keep track of occupancy by zone, while the Temperature Kiosk for touchless check-ins integrates into workforce management platforms and comes with facial recognition or QR code-based identification. The investment in these products, says the company, emphasizes its belief that prioritizing customer and employee safety is a crucial element of bringing consumers back into retail environments.

“Brick and mortar businesses are at an inherent disadvantage originating from the lack of data that digital native businesses take for granted,” says Qopper COO, Brad McGuinness. “Qopper bridges this gap by capturing actionable metrics to improve efficiency and maximize profits. The addition of occupancy and human thermography products to our portfolio will improve customer and employee safety to better serve our customers.”

The products are designed to capture relevant signals from the physical space to improve monitoring, automation, and overall operational efficiencies for customer and store operations, POS systems, food safety, and energy management. With experience in building and operating one of the largest global network of secure payment devices, says the company, it now aims to replicate that success at a larger scale with sensors and smart devices.

The company says it is rapidly expanding its footprint across various retail and commercial segments and has already processed over 300 million events from over 5,000 devices across thousands of locations.

Qopper Founder and CEO, Alok Bhanot says, “We envision a future where technology solutions seamlessly function in physical spaces. In these unusually challenging times for brick and mortar businesses, Qopper is betting on its IoT network to deliver efficiencies to businesses while prioritizing safety for their employees and customers.”
