See how NEMS Works
Nimlok’s Entry Management System (NEMS) is an out of the box plug and play system that counts customers in and out of the store.
The sensor collected traffic count data then updates in real-time the integrated digital signage that advises shoppers how long their estimated wait time and when they may enter.
The outbound screen displays a thank you message and again using the stores live data, advises shoppers the quietest/shortest wait periods to consider for their next visit.
The free-standing unit makes it compatible with any store entrance layout and is designed to work around existing infrastructure such as anti-theft readers.
Internally the devices and sensor are connected to each other and our system utilises our cloud technology where retailers can centrally review live data and activity trends to guide future planning.
For additional customer safety, the system is equipped with an audible alarm and flashing light that is triggered if someone enters before they are allowed to, enabling your store staff to intervene.
Aside from being highly beneficial to the retail sector, our NEMS solution has also been placed in universities, to manage admission levels in libraries, and open access areas. In addition NEMS has been adapted to support businesses need to manage washroom facilities access.

Real Time Data Collection & Reporting Dashboard
Our solution will allow you to log in from anywhere and access your key metrics, per location to determine footfall, wait times and throughput.
Our easy to use online system will provide all of these data points at the touch of a button.
Whilst there are many sophisticated retail analytics systems offering live customer occupancy count numbers and insights like flow, hotspots and dwell time, these all require significant investment and professional installation of sensors and network infrastructure.
Typically they are also not configurable to translate live data into shopper instructions via digital signage.
NEMS Example Configurations
Our entry management system is able to support a variety of configuration layout requirements. From same entry and exit doorway coverage to entry and exit through different doorways, our versatile solution is also available in weatherproof format for outdoor positioning.
See some of the configuration options below. Note the totem is available as a traffic light display or with a digital screen display. For a more compact solution we have a indoor window traffic light display option.
We are very pleased with our NEMS investment at our store. The system was installed in minutes and our team quickly trained and comfortable with it. It has done exactly what we’d hoped in releasing a member of our team from door duties and given us peace of mind that we have a safe operating model for controlling occupancy. I would have no hesitation in recommending NEMS to fellow retailers.
