Retail security and consumer intelligence


Transform security and customer experience with advanced analytics. Find out how.

Current industry challenges

Today, the retail industry is still undergoing a transformative process, as online sales take precedence over those in physical locations. A study conducted by Oracle showed that 65% of consumers consider personalized offers to be the most important in their shopping experience. How can traditional retail transform and benefit from the customer behavior analytics that e-commerce businesses already use to offer personalized buying experiences?

At the same time, security managers in the retail sector are also still facing the same concerns they always have: shoplifting, break-ins, employee theft, clerical errors, assault, parking security.

Video surveillance may have once been reserved for security demands only, but it now reveals customer buying patterns and behavior through video analytics and insights that any store can use to increase sales. Finding a solution that can deliver proactive security, fast and accurate investigations, and customer data, is vital for the industry.

Store optimization with retail analytics

Store optimization with retail analytics

Use the number of people and vehicles entering and exiting to analyze store performance, footfall, monitor queues, and allocate more staff during busy periods. With Smart Presence™, our Map view shows people and vehicles in their precise on-site locations, live footage, and their paths as they move on the camera field of view. Combine with access control solutions to then monitor staff or gain a clearer understanding for use in case of fire or active shooter scenarios.

Accurate search within minutes

Track and manage inventory, reduce shrinkage, and identify false liability claims throughout your facilities. Smart Search™ powers operators to search by appearance, events, objects, similarity, or image within minutes.
