Putting safety and security is at the forefront for Sodexo as they start to reopen its restaurants and respecting social distancing measures plays an important role in ensuring a safe environment for their employees, clients and customers.
Monitoring traffic flow is key.
The BlueFox Count solution notifies onsite teams promptly when safe restaurant capacity is about to be exceeded. When this occurs, an alert is automatically sent to the on duty restaurant manager’s phone to ensure necessary safety protocols can proactively be administered.
Furthermore, the occupancy rate of the restaurant can also be shared with employees, clients, and customers via a website or mobile app to help with the continuous regulation of incoming traffic and allow guests to make informed decisions even before they arrive.
"At Sodexo, we are fully mobilized on the global campaign against COVID-19 and the health and safety of our employees, clients, and customers is our utmost priority. We are continuing to reinforce our security and safety measures including social distancing guidelines for our onsite teams.
BlueFox helps to reinforce these guidelines by providing real-time information on restaurant capacity. We’ve started to deploy the Count solution at numerous locations in the US, and across the globe, as part of our FM service offer in response to the COVID-19 situation."Isabelle Hannedouche, Senior VP for Business Improvement & Growth Support
Two years ago, Sodexo teamed up with Bluefox to test just such a solution. Using advanced smartphone proximity detection, BlueFox provides Sodexo restaurant operators with real-time occupancy and location-based data. And for simplicity’s sake, the technology is cloud-based, privacy-friendly (GDPR compliant), and requires no apps or beacons.
Since then, the solution has been deployed at numerous locations in the US and across the globe.
