Retail stores are a prime target for theft, and retail businesses face massive problems with shrinkage eating away at profits. Advances in the quality and sophistication of video surveillance now provide management with actionable information for liability claims, personnel behavior issues, and marketing trends.
Video surveillance isn’t just about loss prevention. Management has adopted video to provide a safer work environment for employees to take advantage of insurance benefits for reduced liability, utilize enhanced analytics for queue management, people counting, crowd and loitering detection, and strategic product marketing.
Working with several systems integrators, Kirkland’s chose to deploy an IP video surveillance solution consisting of Hanwha video surveillance cameras managed by Salient’s enterprise Video Management Software (VMS).

Security must place a key role as the company resells and recycles quality merchandise, giving communities a smart way to shop, and it keeps more than 700 million pounds of used goods from landfills every year. Savers takes their recycling efforts a step further by helping more than 100 nonprofit organizations, purchasing their donated goods and providing them with a source of revenue.

When implementing or upgrading a video management system, security professionals are not looking at it as a short-term investment that will need to be replaced in a few years, but
Security technology remains a critical tool in the loss prevention professional’s toolbox and now more than ever, it’s imperative to fully leverage a video management system to mitigate these pressures.
