monitor pedestrian flows and retail traffic

counting 24/7

PFM counts the number of pedestrians and visitors in inner cities and large shopping areas 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

By using fixed counting points, we are able to monitor pedestrian flows and retail traffic.

The fixed counting points are located in both shopping areas and shopping centres, most of which in A1 or B1 locations.

weekly overview

We provide our clients with insights in the average number of visitors in specific areas in several countries. In a weekly overview we share several indexes, such as a national visitors index, regional distribution per country, week- and weather overview.

With this information municipal authorities have a better understanding of how people use certain cities, it helps increase safety in case of emergencies and makes it easier to plan and optimize future activities in urban planning. Would you like to know more about people counting in your city, please contact  


There are many footfall counting systems installed in and around town centres up and down the UK so that Councils have footfall information specifically to evaluate th e impact of investment. One such Council is Caerphilly.


PFM have been awarded a contract to supply a site-wide footfall system to cover the full 64 acre site gradually over the 5-year build schedule. We will deliver footfall data for each of these as well as an overall site total.


PFM have supplied Westfield footfall systems for both London and Stratford sites covering all entry exits, zones and internal flow points. The system provides centre management with vital information on centre performance and flows.
