Reimagining Video Surveillance: Fewer Investigations & More Proactive Crime Prevention
This session will provide real-world examples on how deploying the right VMS and analytical suite for end-user customers can and will change the way they deal with risk.
Retailers are challenged with a host of obstacles keeping them from maximizing greater profitability as well as impeding the impact on such things as organized retail crime (ORC), internal and external theft, and customer and employee safety.
Utilizing an open VMS platform with ancillary analytic tools enables retailers to overcome a staffing gap, get ahead of risk factors, and truly know and see what is causing the greatest opportunities in store locations.
Join us for some real-world examples on how deploying the right VMS and analytical suite for those end-user customers can and will change the way they deal with risk.
