In the current environment with the need to limit customer numbers, sophisticated access control solutions (incorporating thermal screening) can easily be implemented to help improve operational efficiency and customer experience.
Apart from the obvious security benefits that CCTV provides for the retail environment, some of the other main advantages are the use of analytics. Analytics are evolving at a fast pace in the security industry, and the available data can help businesses in a host of other areas beyond the traditional security environment, especially in the retail sector.
Benefits can be gained in areas such as improved product placement, with heat mapping to indicate where the hotspots in the store are. This is especially useful for marketing particular products displays and to assist in shop floor display management. Another benefit is the ability to identify people using facial recognition to alert management if known individuals are on site, allowing staff to monitor specific people to prevent potential theft.
The implementation of these solutions for businesses help to improve both efficiency and profitability. And with the ability to link multiple sites and centralise security operations, improved efficiency for larger retail chains can bring significant benefits.
Don’t think about your retail security system as simply a mechanism to prevent stock loss. Think of it as a way to improve operational efficiency and profit in your business, using connected solutions from automation security solutions such as CCTV and facial recognition.
