UniGuard News 7th December 2020 – Technology based solutions for Shopping Centres and Supermarkets leading up to the holiday season (COVID-19)

As the holiday season approaches, shopping centres and supermarkets are already gearing up in preparation for the influx of customers fulfilling their seasonal shopping spree. Christmas would not be complete without endless shopping carts, full to the brim, with hearty food and gifts for precious loved ones. Keeping customers’ holiday wishes in mind, these establishments are taking extraordinary measures to ensure that everyone gets to enjoy their holiday season routine, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Technology based staff management solutions have been adopted by many shopping centres and supermarket chains globally to ensure customer safety. These staff management solutions have proven to be a key factor for establishments to be able to efficiently and effectively manage their increased workforce, especially in times like this, when operations have to be monitored and adjusted quickly and without hesitation.

Cleaning and security operations has never been easier to manage remotely with the implementation of staff monitoring and management systems within establishments.

Taking into consideration the increased frequency of cleaning and security rotations lately, as well as general sanitary precautions, management must be able to easily analyse and adjust staff movement on the fly if necessary.

Situations which require quick action include:

  • General area sanitisation
  • In-store basket and trolley cleaning
  • Replenishing hand sanitisation stations
  • Slip, trip & fall hazards (ex: food & beverage spills)
  • Quick action in case of a breach in social distancing regulations (ex: crowing & queues)
  • Contact tracing

“Implementing a customised staff monitoring and management system will not only allow you to execute and assign tasks more efficiently. It enables an establishment to analyse and adjust rotations accordingly, monitor staff compliance, take advantage of an intricate reporting system and make operations as cost effective as possible without compromising staff and customer safety.”
