American Supermarket Selects AxxonSoft for Theft Prevention

American Supermarket Selects  AxxonSoft  for Theft Prevention

Wakefern Food Corporation, the merchandising and distribution arm for ShopRite, is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the United States, with locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region. Saker ShopRites owns and operates 27 supermarkets in New Jersey.

Retail grocery stores are challenged to maintain security surveillance over large spaces to reduce the risk of theft, and to capture video content with a high degree of detail. A typical store may have 50 cameras and some as many as 100 to adequately monitor activity. Recording and storing data can be costly. However, capturing high-quality video is essential in providing evidence for legal purposes.

Saker ShopRites is dedicated to implementing leading edge technologies and methodologies for ensuring loss prevention. Saker Loss Prevention worked with Axxon integration partner, Proactive Technology Solutions, to develop a sophisticated and cost-effective approach for monitoring security at their stores

For 20 years, Proactive Technology Solutions has delivered network integration solutions for retail stores, restaurants, schools and other high-traffic, consumer locations. Proactive has been exclusively focused on providing integrated video surveillance systems for over a decade. Beyond the capabilities of alarm companies that react to fire and burglary, Proactive specializes in creating systems that help to prevent or solve crimes.

Proactive's customized solutions for the retail food industry integrate the best of industry loss prevention standards and leading-edge video platforms. Recognizing the expanded capabilities of IP video technology, Proactive has led the migration of its clients from analog to IP video systems. In considering an IP video platform, Proactive selected Axxon Intellect for its specific benefits to retail installations.

Saker Loss Prevention has been a customer of Proactive Technology Solutions for five years. During this time, the company transitioned from buying and maintaining its own video surveillance equipment to leasing a complete system from Proactive. Leasing has been an effective operating solution for Saker Loss Prevention that allows the company to expense costs to each store and more easily upgrade technology, while lowering overall maintenance and support costs.
