Woolworths Opts For Bandwidth Friendly Video Surveillance Solution
With 3,500 supermarkets, general merchandise, home improvement, consumer electronics and liquor stores, as well as petrol stations located across Australia and New Zealand, Woolworths required a video surveillance system capable of operating over bandwidth links of 64 kilobits per second or less.
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.
