Due to COVID-19, all indoor and outdoor events need to respect safety measures striving to assure social distancing. Instead of using counting machines and slowing down the flow of the start and finish areas, Spartan Race used the smart, real-time people counter Vividi.
All actual data are available in the web app dashboard. Organizers can see the statistics and get instant occupancy information of the monitored areas, which helps them to manage and optimize their fluctuation.
The whole process, starting with placing the order, through shipment, installation to getting the final data, lasted only 48 hours. This is crucial due to the governmental restrictions being changed very quickly. The installation was simple and fast. On the day before the Race, the organizers themselves placed the devices at entrances to the site, plugged them into the electricity and connected them to their local Wi‑Fi. Then they just watched the incoming data through the app.
The main purpose of Vividi was to assure the safety of the participants while respecting the government regulations guaranteed by counting people in specific areas. In the meantime, the device was also collecting statistics, including key marketing data such as participants' sex, age and behavior.
"We highly appreciated the pro-customer approach, speed of order processing and flexibility in communication. Thanks to the accurate measuring of the VIVIDI solution, we were able to comply with this regulation and keep the race running smoothly."
