Retail Industry Issues
With a rise in Shrink levels by over 22% to £5.03bn in 2014 retailers are waking up to the fact that in a market where margins are growing increasingly tighter, this is an area of operations that must be addressed in order to improve profitability.
Of in store shrink, customer theft accounted for 39% while employee theft and fraud accounted for 33%. These are two areas where effective HD video surveillance can have a massive impact. It not only acts as a visual deterrent, making individuals more cautious knowing they are being actively monitored, it can also be used as a potent evidential tool, helping to prosecute criminals.
The retail industry is still overwhelmingly dominated (c. 70%) by ageing PAL format, analogue solutions, which often fail to capture the detail provided when it comes to providing evidential materials. Dedicated Micros range of IP and HD Analogue solutions facilitate a simple upgrade to HD quality video, providing the necessary level of detail to clearly identify people and objects in it’s field of view.
