Woolworths Opts For Bandwidth Friendly Video Surveillance Solution

The CENEX gas station and convenience store in Tioga, North Dakota, isn’t your typical, neighborhood gas station and c-store. Located in the heart of the mid-West state’s Bakken oil boom region, this gas station and c-store is a super-sized 36,000-square foot (3,345-square meter) behemoth with 11 fuel islands and 22 pumps dispensing gasoline and diesel.
Some restaurateurs think of video surveillance strictly as a tool to investigate incidents of theft and other risks such as slip and falls, but Hideaway Pizza, a 12-restaurant chain based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, thinks of video surveillance more as a critical enabler of operational excellence.
Losses in the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry resulting from staff theft amount to an astonishing 7% of sales, according to the National Restaurant Association. Costing billions of dollars a year, theft can take many forms — from simple cash register theft to more sophisticated scams involving several individuals.
Why should retailers invest in video surveillance when they could use that money to hire a new employee or run an advertisement? Because many retail organizations today are successfully using their surveillance system for just minutes a day to find costly inefficiencies, theft and other problems – and seeing increased revenues and profits as a result.
