Build a smoother passenger experience
Your airport’s success is intimately linked with your passengers’ experience. How seamlessly they move from drop-off to check-in, past screening and into retail and boarding areas directly impacts their level of satisfaction. The goal is to have happy travelers that will contribute to your airport’s commercial success.
Genetec Airport Sense™ is an advanced analytics solution that extracts valuable insights from sensors you’ve already invested in, such as video security cameras. These insights give you a deeper understanding of what’s happening in your airport – helping you create a passenger journey that’s faster and smoother.
Understanding your airport
Know how your airport moves
Airports are reaching new levels of sophistication, with retail areas increasingly driving commercial success. At the same time, an increase in traffic as well as new screening and security measures are impacting the way we travel. To make sense of it all, you need to know which areas are most often visited, better exposed, and where delays occur.
Analyze passenger behavior
With a deeper knowledge of passenger movement throughout your terminals, you can begin to predict the everyday flow of people. In no time, your team can develop the expertise to understand passenger paths, from curb side to the gate, so that you become intimately aware of their entire journey.
Optimize the passenger journey
Equipped with a better understanding of terminal usage and density, as well as traveler and visitor flow, you can take action and eliminate unnecessary hold-ups. You can take informed, data-driven decisions that reduce waiting times, increase throughput, and lead to satisfied travelers. In turn, they visit your airport time and again, recommend it to others, and continue fueling your growth.
