Axis Communications, global providers of network video solutions, will be participating as a silver sponsor and exhibitor during Seamless Retail 2018, taking place at the Dubai International Convention Exhibition Centre, April 15 - 16, 2018.
Being in retail has never been so challenging. Competition is fierce, margins are being squeezed, and external/internal losses are becoming increasingly costly. It is therefore the perfect time to reconsider the many ways in which video surveillance can help retail business; it’s more than just about safety and security.
Pro-active surveillance and monitoring can help prevent losses, improve merchandising and offer customers a better experience. It makes sound business sense in every retail operation, whether it’s a single shop or a whole chain of stores.
Philippe Kubbinga, Regional Director, Middle East & Africa, Axis Communications, “Retail is a key focus for us and we are witnessing a high demand for an analytics-based approach now more than ever. Business owners are going beyond traditional surveillance methods and utilising the intelligence available all around. Axis meets this requirement perfectly with our retail solutions. I’m confident we are witnessing a new era of running retail businesses and we are excited and geared to deliver towards that demand.”
When used with Security Center, Genetec Retail Sense enables retailers to gain operational intelligence through their VMS"
Ahmed Ouf, Business Development Manager – Retail, Axis Communications, “Retail has very different and specific requirements on network video systems. At our booth we are pleased to present our custom-fit solutions. With the fast-paced technological revolutions, the store of the future will be digital and capturing that intelligence will be key to operating a profitable business. You can focus on customer engagement, sales and service by efficiently monitoring in-store queues, re-allocating your staff in real time and seeing how well your campaigns and merchandising attracts shoppers.”
Axis will be joined by three key partners on the stand. Genetec, Quanergy and JARD ME.
Firas Jadalla, Regional Director, Genetec Inc. Middle East, Africa, Turkey, “Brick and mortar retailers today must gather and rely on the same insightful customer analytics that online merchants can harvest automatically. When used with Security Center, Genetec Retail Sense enables retailers to gain operational intelligence through their VMS with enterprise-wide visibility of sales floors, point-of-sale (POS), and cash-handling areas that enhance customer service by transforming existing video surveillance content into powerful analytical consumer insights.”
A smart store brings together the online world and the physical store, providing an intelligent and customer-friendly environment. Genetec Retail Sense connects all store and customer touchpoints, combining data from all digital devices and sensors to generate real-time analytics and business intelligence data.
