When managing multiple people counting devices, beyond the first few units, there is an increasing level of effort required for you as the provider of the hardware, to visit sites and configure the devices. As the number of locations increases this becomes a more difficult challenge to address.
The solution is to offer location management software. One of the barriers to this is that the majority of software providers tend to look at thresholds, signing up for volumes of units at a time. Setting up the software can also require an investment for each provider in cloud infrastructure. Further, using a cloud based approach may well provide you with more hurdles to overcome with your client’s IT functions who will ask a lot of questions around security.
