Retail Security Challenges
Global retail shrinkage exceeded $114 billion in 2009. North America experiencing a year over year increase of 8%. The majority of the increase in shrink can be attributed to an increase in shoplifting, probably due to the diminished global economic situation found that year. However, a significant portion of total shrink is due to employee theft.
Unfortunately, these shocking industry statistics account for only some of the issues facing today’s retailers. Trip/Slip claims and business efficiencies such as queue management, merchandising trends and warehouse controls are all common challenges for the retail industry that can be met with an integrated solution from Koetter Security.

Having cameras positioned effectively and recording high quality images is essential in deterring theft. Koetter’s integrated solutions monitor problem areas and can be linked to the point of sale which is in turn recorded via the integrated digital video recorder when an alarm/event is activated. Video clips can be quick exported to DVD/USB for any ensuing police investigation.
Violence or Abuse against Staff
An effective CCTV monitoring system is an essential tool in reducing violence or abuse against your staff, providing employees the peace of mind to know that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then recorded onto the Video Management System.
An integrated video and access control system can improve retailers’ business efficiencies. A store manager responsible for many stores must have the ability to monitor them all remotely from any location. Using remote monitoring software, store efficiency can be enhanced by monitoring queues, car parks, the effectiveness of in store promotions and much more. Trip/Slips claims can also be validated by using the advanced search facility on our security management system, greatly reducing unwarranted insurance claims.
Using Koetter’s access control software can help establish clearly defined access zones in warehouses/loading bays/storage rooms ensuring only authorized personnel are admitted at the correct times. Any unauthorized access attempts will trigger an alarm that will be captured by the cameras and then recorded onto the video management system, which, in turn activates an alarm.
