As many retailers, restaurants, and public venues get set to start reopening in the coming days and weeks, the need to enforce physical distancing measures is critical. To help these organisations monitor their occupancy levels and ensure compliance with regulations, Genetec Inc. (Genetec), a globally renowned technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, has announced a new Occupancy Management Package. Occupancy Management Package The Occupancy Management Package includes analytics and reporting tools that enable organisations to tap into their security system to count the number of people in a store or similar business area, visualise data, and alert employees when occupancy limits are being reached. Audit reports can also be easily produced to demonstrate a business’ compliance with physical distancing regulations. Live occupancy data displayed With this new package, organisations can define policies that adhere to local guidelines for occupancy With this new package, organisations can define policies that adhere to local guidelines for occupancy, and mobilise their operations to limit the risk of transmission. Live occupancy data is displayed in clear, graphical ways. When occupancy limits are being reached, employees who are responsible for monitoring the situation can receive alerts on a mobile device, via email, or on their Security Centre dashboard so they can take appropriate action. Social distancing for staff, patrons safety “As public-facing organisations get ready to re-open, they are looking for ways to align security measures in adherence with physical distancing regulations to keep their staff and patrons safe,” said Rob Borsch, Practice Leader – Retail and Banking at Genetec, Inc. Rob further added, “In order to enforce these strict occupancy rules, they will need to do more than just count the number of people entering their premises – they will need to know how many people are inside a store or restaurant at any given moment, continuously monitor this data, and be able take action when thresholds are reached.”
Genetec Inc., globally renowned technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions has announced Security Center Transaction Finder, a POS (Point of Sale) integration tool with exception-based reporting capabilities, designed to help retailers speed up their investigations. The new POS tool with exception-based analytics embedded in security platform helps retailers reduce shrink by quickly detecting suspicious transactions and correlating events with surveillance video. Security Center Transaction Finder Embedded in the security system, Security Center Transaction Finder correlates POS data with corresponding video, with the ability to bring in additional sources such as analytics as an added feature. It eliminates the need to jump between different platforms, and helps investigators filter through large volumes of transactions to quickly detect suspicious activities that might warrant further investigation. Retail shrink is increasing, and theft tactics are becoming more complex, strategic and internal Retail shrink is increasing, and theft tactics are becoming more complex, strategic and internal. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF) 2019 national retail security survey, theft, fraud, and losses from other retail “shrink” continues to rise (totaling US$ 50.6 billion in 2018, up from $46.8 billion the year before). To identify theft trends and combat loss, retailers are increasingly turning to technology to put in place effective ways to work smarter and automate their processes to reduce losses and preserve valuable margin. Theft and financial fraud detection “Working with a variety of tools and applications to reduce retail loss is a critical aspect of any retail investigator’s job. However, the enormous volume of POS transactions to review, combined with the amount of time it takes to manually find the security video associated with potentially fraudulent activity makes this a daunting task. With Transaction Finder, we solve that problem by using a single tool that makes it easy to detect theft trends, identify suspicious transactions and locate video of interest,” explains Rob Borsch, Practice Leader – Retail and Banking at Genetec, Inc. Scanning POS database Using the Transaction Finder task in Security Center, investigators simply enter relevant search criteria like date and time, employee name, SKUs involved in the transaction, void transactions, or whether motion was detected on the customer side of the register, etc. Transaction Finder will scan the POS database for activities that meet the selected criteria along with the associated video and the transaction details. Using customisable dashboards, investigators can quickly identify suspicious transactions, immediately review the associated video for more context, and flag transactions for further investigation.
