When it comes to running small-to-medium retail businesses like clothing boutiques or a bookstore franchise, you might face major challenges relating to limited network bandwidth and video surveillance expertise. Managing video systems can consume many resources spanning people and technology. Additionally, juggling arduous tasks like monitoring the status of a system or leveraging video data with other data sources for new business and operational insights can be overwhelming and lead to burnout.
Enter MultiSight, a video-as-a-service (VSaaS) for retail spaces. This surveillance solution makes video and retail analytics simple, approachable, and valuable for your business. Here are just a few ways that MutiSight significantly enhances the safety and efficiency of your retail business.
Imagine that your franchise has 30 locations. It takes time and resources to consistently visit them to ensure employee compliance, and every time time you visit, you only see a glimpse of how each store is managed. With MultiSight, you can check video feeds from any store location through a smartphone or tablet, giving you a much more accurate picture of what’s going on. You can also use a single login to connect you to every location, and our cloud-based infrastructure means that you stay connected even if you change devices.
In the event of a security breach such as merchandise theft or vandalism, sharing the evidence in a timely manner is crucial to minimize future risk including identification and apprehension of suspects. The good news is that MultiSight allows you to share videos with anyone using just one link, so response measures can be taken within minutes instead of long after the incident has occurred. This feature also helps your employees to respond effectively to security breaches or improve customer service skills based on captured video.
Employee turnover is common for many retail businesses, and it can be frustrating to navigate a surveillance system that has complicated procedures for removing an employee’s access when they quit or when adding a newly hired manager. Not only are you able to add or remove users within seconds, you can also grant each user access to specific locations. Whether you oversee 10 or 10,000 locations, MultiSight can easily adapt to the growth of your retail business.
MultiSight is feature-rich, but is also easy to learn, which can help new managers get up to speed on the surveillance plan. This solution is consistently and automatically updated, so everyone who has access to the system always has the most current version at all times.
MultiSight is also designed to protect your video with end-to-end bank-grade encryption for all communications so your data is safe and available when you need it.
MultiSight’s people-counting feature updates you on crowd density throughout the day.
Heat maps help you determine which departments or products are most popular, which can help optimize your business strategy.
MultiSight automatically notifies you when a camera goes offline, which prevents negative ripple effects that can affect the security or efficiency of your business. You’ll also know right away when your cameras need maintenance or replacement.
On-site video storage with selective push to the cloud minimizes bandwidth requirements and ensures video capture if there is a network outage.
MultiSight stores video for one year, so you won’t have to worry about narrow storage windows.
