MD, Simon Hathaway is a pioneer of retail experience, working with technology that is transforming our expectations of shopping and leading the way in the future of retail experience.
The company recently released the iDISPLAY Thermometer, which is designed to instill a sense of trust and safety in people across industries as they re-commence everyday activities, and public gatherings post COVID-19. I learn how the company continues to find innovative ways to do their part in flattening the curve.
The non-contact infrared thermometers enables customers to invite users back in stores, schools, and work, in a cost-effective, efficient, and safe way. Backed by the world’s leading technology in infrared thermopile arrays, the iDISPLAY Thermometer uses Heimann, Melexis, or Omron Sensors to capture temperature in a contactless, frictionless, and accurate way. Within a matter of two seconds, iDISPLAY Thermometer can read body temperatures, alert users, and designated associates if they have a fever.
