Discover how a national grocer resolved restroom security issues with Good2Go automated QR code access control—boosting profits, store safety, and job satisfaction.
San Francisco and Denver share some common problems: homelessness, substance abuse, poor mental health and limited public restroom access. COVID-19 worsened these complex issues and has put a huge burden on businesses whose restrooms often get targeted with theft, vandalism, misuse, and other security issues. A national grocery store brand, which has locations in both cities, was greatly affected.
Despite using keys and punch code locks on restroom doors at these high-risk locations, they still experienced daily security escalations, persistent closures due to damage and misuse, and repeated hazmat clean-ups from drug related incidents that cost them thousands. To address these issues, this grocer replaced their existing locks with Good2Go and saw immediate improvement in restroom cleanliness, store safety, customer and staff satisfaction.
Good2Go secures restroom doors with automated access control technology that provides users with a seamless QR code and web-app functionality through a smartphone. This process creates a digital footprint that deters bad actors, and is exactly how these two grocery stores turned their restroom troubles around.
“We’ve had little to no security escalations, drug incidents, or vandalism since we installed Good2Go.” says Denver’s Loss Prevention Associate. This effectiveness stems from the change in human behavior when having to use a smartphone to gain restroom access. It holds users accountable and reduces security escalations that negatively impact staff and customer wellbeing.
In San Francisco, a Team Leader says, “Good2Go is a night and day difference in cleanliness and safety” and the Store Manager says, “There is a significant improvement in staff workload, safety, and job satisfaction.”
Because Good2Go prevents restroom misuse, they stay cleaner and safer which keeps staff focused on core responsibilities and improves customer retention and loyalty. This greatly reduces costs associated with security, hazmat cleaning, maintenance, supplies, and negative store perception. In fact, these cost-savings amount to the hundreds of thousands, making Good2Go a smart investment with immediate ROI.
After partnering with Good2Go in March 2022, both San Francisco and Denver locations saw a clear business case and compelling results:
