Top Benefits of Video Surveillance for Retail Stores:
Inventory Loss Prevention:
Inventory loss is a very common occurrence in retail stores, and even though the management implements several tactics like inventory organization via ERP, the system can still be manipulated. The best way to deter loss of inventory due to theft and ensure whoever steals it gets caught red-handed is to install video surveillance cameras. Whether it’s a problem with customer shoplifting or employee inventory theft, visible security cameras are sure to cut down on potential loss.
24/7 Surveillance Increases Security
Your IP-based video surveillance cameras can capture and stream everything happening in your store 24/7. You will have access to monitor them on your mobile device via a cloud-based system allowing you to check up on your business from anywhere you have internet access. One benefit of this is that you can feel peace of mind in knowing you can view your location at any time to check on any expensive equipment/inventory you may be concerned about. Furthermore, if your security system sends you an alert of suspicious activity, you can quickly pull up the live feed to determine if there is any need to call the police.
Reduces Employee Theft & Boosts Efficiency
The amount of employee theft in the U.S alone is $50 billion annually. Now, this does not mean every hardworking employee is a thief, or that you have an issue with this at all. This stat just points out that employee theft can be a serious problem, and if you are proactive, you may be able to avoid this problem in the future. The visible presence of video surveillance cameras will not only help deter actual employee theft but will also promote better productivity from your staff.
Helps With Improving Shopping Experience:
Retail stores, especially the big ones like supermarkets, need to place products in a way that they attract more customers and increase sales. This can be done by studying live shoppers and how they behave around certain aisles via a video camera feed. This will allow you to enhance their shopping experience by improving product display and placement.
