Video analytics, also known as IVS (Intelligent Video Surveillance) is a technology used to analyze video for specific data. Video analytics is a growing trend in the retail industry and is used to reduce shrink, increase security and improve customer service. Video analytics is often used to send immediate alerts to associates about unusual or suspicious activity found in a video feed, but this solution can also be used to assign tasks via mobile computers.
Video cameras can be set to monitor shelf stock of specific items and video analytics can be used to identify out-of-stock items and alert associates. Detailed task notifications are sent to a mobile device so the correct employee on duty can replenish the shelf.
