Counting the Benefits with GEZE

  • 28 Jan 2021

GEZE has introduced two systems, GEZE Counter Plus and GEZE Counter Connect, that integrate with automatic doors to provide controlled admission by a simple but effective traffic light system.

This meets the need for social distancing guidelines, controls the number of people entering a shop (without the need for someone to stand at the door), ensuring the health and safety of employees and customers. 

This solution provides queue management automatically and saves money, makes better use of staff and meet the government’s COVID-19 requirements.

BP Fuels were quick to spot the benefits of GEZE’s Counter system and was one of the first companies to sign up to have it installed – it has now been rolled out to more than 200 BP retail stores nationwide.

BP chose GEZE Counter Plus; the system includes a large display pillar with an integrated traffic light system that controls the automatic door’s operator and links to a local network on a PC or smartphone to view, control and manage analytics in store.

When the traffic lights are on red, the doors are deactivated, but entrance is permitted when they go green.   

BP Fuels were so impressed with the GEZE Counter system that GEZE UK was awarded the BP Contractors Achievement Award 2020 for Innovation.

Due to the pandemic, the award was presented digitally by Martin Rackley, HSSE Advisor at BP, to Adam Presdee, GEZE UK Service Director.

Adam said: “On behalf of the whole team at GEZE UK I am delighted to receive this award for developing and rolling out the GEZE Counter system, it also recognises BP’s vision and commitment to health and safety to look after their staff and customers. 

“GEZE Counter was a big project for GEZE UK both to introduce it and to roll it out to BP sites across the country, especially during lockdown and following government guidelines.”

As retailers are being targeted to do more to combat the COVID-19 virus, it remains crucial to know the true occupancy and flow of people in and out of store, whilst ensuring the safety of both staff and customers.
