Safety and productivity for retailers

POSTED: 28th May

Facing the COVID-19 outbreak, many countries and regions have introduced prevention and control measures to fight against the pandemic, such as closing non-essential business establishments and restricting people’s movement in public places. Like many others, supermarkets and stores have also adopted safety protocols to comply with government directives, including hand sanitiser stations, customer and staff temperature monitoring, reduced capacity limits, contactless customer service and payments, etc., in order to keep their customers and staff as safe as possible.

However, a recent report from AP News shows that a lot of major non-essential retailers worldwide have been affected by COVID-19. According to Neil Saunders, managing director of GlobalData Retail, more than 190 000 stores have temporarily closed, accounting for nearly 50% of US retail square footage. At the same time, Swedish fashion retailer H&M; also implied that after temporarily closing 3441 of its 5062 stores globally, it may be forced to lay off some employees permanently. How to survive during the pandemic and take effective prevention and control measures after work resumption has become a major consideration for retailers across the globe.

In response to the challenges facing the retail industry, Dahua Technology has launched a professional ‘Retail Epidemic Safety Protection Solution’ to help retailers maintain safe operations and improve business efficiency during the pandemic, as well as providing upgraded plans to increase ROI after business resumption.
