A comprehensive video solution for retail

Issue 8 2022 Retail (Industry), CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

Retail Intellect is a comprehensive, flexible solution for retailers that matches technologies to ensure point-of-sale safety and security with video analytics. It supports automatic reactions to different events as well as a range of forensic video analytic tools. Users can add an unlimited number of servers and remote workstations to the systems. The result is a protection system that is adapted to the needs of your point-of-sale or retail chain.

What does Retail Intellect do?

• Monitoring of checkout transactions.

• Video surveillance combined with powerful, dynamic analysis, in both live and recorded video modes.

• Queue management.

• Visitor counting.

• Identification of store ‘hotspots’ where visitors congregate.

One of the best features is the centralised monitoring and analysis. This is implemented through web reports which can be accessed securely from any web browser on any Internet-connected device, allowing you to:

• View reports on cash register events, with corresponding video and receipt text.

• Get information on visitor activity at a retail location, as measured by the ‘hotspot’ and ‘coldspot’ detection tools.

• Get statistics on the number of visitors to a retail location or store department during a defined time period.

• Get information about the number of customers in cash register lines.

• Print and email reports.

Monitoring of checkout transactions

The data from the cash register is analysed to prevent losses by checking for suspicious events, theft, fraud, etc. For example:

• Fraud with credit cards.

• Theft of cash.

• Failure to print a receipt.

• Barcode swapping with a cheaper product.

• Acceptance and pocketing of a returned product without ringing up the refund transaction.

• Use of fake credit card slips.

• Fake refunds/returns.
