Computer vision is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that trains computers to interpret and understand digital images from cameras and videos. Computers can ‘learn’ to accurately identify and classify objects, and then react to and report on what they ‘see’. It’s a rapidly growing platform for real-time store management and enhanced operations. By 2021, 40% of retailers will implement computer vision in their customer service and support workflow, and vendors employing computer vision in retail will see a 20% lift in conversion.1

“SoftServe’s in-store social distancing solution is bridging a critical gap for retailers, ensuring a safe shopping environment through the COVID-19 pandemic while providing a valuable long-term solution for continual security, future growth, and consumer engagement,” said Valentyn Kropov, VP, client success at SoftServe. “Our solution works with your existing in-store equipment and can be ‘retrained’ around future scenarios, giving you a foundation on which to optimize store operations and customer experience for years to come.”

Ensure Customer and Employee Safety and Social Distancing Regulatory Compliance

  • Mask and Temperature Detection—detect if patrons are wearing masks and scan customers’ temperatures with an infrared thermometer upon entry.
  • Manage Store Capacity—count the number of patrons entering and exiting the store and provide entry permission alerts and QR code vouchers through a mobile app.
  • Avoid Physical Lines—track designated distance between queued customers, provide department wait times and information through digital signage, and allow patrons to reserve spots in line.

Identify and Understand Customers’ Buying Dynamics

  • Real-Time Data Processing—get actionable insights in the moment with a self-learning system that fully automates data collection.
  • In-Store Customer Tracking—understand your customers’ in-store movements and product engagement better with demographics and heatmap analysis.
  • Create More Immersive Shopping Experiences—learn customer interaction points and deploy AI-driven dynamic in-store advertisements. Use location analytics to optimize store layout and product positioning around customer preferences.

SoftServe’s In-Store Social Distancing Solution integrates with a store’s existing CCTV infrastructure and software platforms and can be rapidly deployed to be up and running in a couple of weeks. It’s designed to be scalable for hundreds of stores, yet is customizable around the specific business needs of each individual store.
