Website

You can highlight the safety measures that are being implemented at your space or event, and provide your customers or visitors with a way to keep track of the number of people who are in your space.

If you update your website with this new content, which can take the form of a CTA button, an image or any other type of content, it's easier for your audience to find out the number of people inside your space whenever they want. 

QR Code

A QR Code is short for Quick Response, a two-dimensional version of the Barcode used to convey a piece of information almost instantly with the scan of a mobile device. It can be read quickly by a smartphone, and that’s one of the key features of QR Codes.

Nowadays, the newer versions of smartphones are able to read a QR Code by just using the phone camera. For mobile phones which doesn’t have an integrated QR Code reader, there are plenty of app solutions that are easy to download and use for reading a QR Code.

QR Codes are very useful because they can store (and digitally present) a diversity of data such as URL links, geo coordinates or text. For this reason, the QR Code can be a great solution to share your Live Counter web page on online and offline contact points.

Imagine that you are monitoring the space occupation like a museum room or a hotel pool area, you can distribute one or more printed QR Codes to different places in your museum or hotel, informing visitors that by scanning that QR Code they can know the number of people in those areas.

You just need to create a QR Code including your Live Counter URL using a site like Kaywa.com or QR Code Generator and share it online, on your website or social media channels, or printing the QR Code and distribute it strategically across the areas of your space.
