Read the case and find out how HiFi Klubben optimizes its business and achieves key insights with Vemcount.
"Over the years, we’ve tested a handful of different people counting solutions, which unfortunately have disappointed us at every turn. Finally, with help from Vemco Group, we’ve found the right solution. A valid and good quality solution ensuring that we can optimize our business and measure the performance of our stores (…)."
HiFi Klubben has tested different counting solutions over the years, but experienced the same challenge each time; unreliable data as a result of unstable and hypersensitive counting units, as well as manually entering counts into the system. Reliable traffic data is crucial for a company like HiFi Klubben which operates with a low visitor rate in its physical stores. Thus, HiFi Klubben raised the following questions:
How do we ensure that our sensors are online and stable in all of our stores?
How do we obtain valid visitor data that are automatically reported into our ERP system?
How do we measure if our employees are converting visitors into customers?
The accuracy that a high-quality 3D sensor delivers was what it took to meet HiFi Klubben’s demand for valid visitor data.
By installing sensors at entrances in all chain stores, and integrating them with our unique software solution, Vemcount, HiFi Klubben now has access to a number of actionable key figures regarding visitor traffic with up to 98% accuracy.
The management and each store have access to the key figures on their own individual dashboards or in customized reports. In addition, they receive monthly reports, produced by our analysis department, which compare performance across chain stores and countries.
Furthermore, the traffic data is automatically reported into the company’s own ERP system, where the combination of traffic data and sales figures enables an automatic calculation of their conversion rate.
"We wanted a central solution that could cover all of our department stores in Denmark. We wanted the same system and a hosted solution but managed from one place. It was also a requirement from the beginning that the solution was able to count very accurately. And Vemcount has worked perfectly."

"We know from the authorities that the queues in supermarkets are a critical place with regard to contagion. As a researcher, I am used to working with data from buildings and people’s movements. It suddenly struck me that if we can give people a visual real-time view of how close they are to each other in the queues, we might encourage them to increase the distance to one another."

"We’ve been satisfied with our collaboration with Vemco Group, which has shown us that it’s possible to reliably and professionally monitor pedestrians on our shopping street. We see a great potential in developing and running our city better based on the insights that Vemco Group has given us."
