Retailers Encouraged to Try Tool at www.IntelliVid.com to Improve Their Loss Prevention Efforts
Cambridge, MA, January 29, 2007 -- IntelliVid Corporation, the leader in intelligent video analysis software for retail loss prevention and store intelligence, today announced its free web-based Intelligent Video Analysis Design Tool, which enables retailers in various segments to better understand their video analysis options.
The tool, which can be accessed at www.intellivid.com, provides retailers with practical advice and solutions via a short survey about their loss prevention infrastructure. Users are asked to answer four short questions including: their store type, the type of cameras they use, whether they have in-store loss prevention personnel, and whether they perform analysis and investigations using store video.
Based upon the user`s responses, the tool delivers a summary of the key challenges faced by stores with those specific attributes, as well as specific recommendations for how IntelliVid`s intelligent video analysis solution, Video Investigator, can be implemented to address each challenge. Users can learn about solutions for a variety of loss prevention challenges their companies might face, or focus specifically on those that are most relevant or urgent.
"We strongly encourage retailers to try our Intelligent Video Analysis Design Tool and learn about the solutions recommended for them," said Alan Sherman, IntelliVid`s director of marketing. "In a matter of minutes, they can easily discover anti-shrink options relevant for their store format that they hadn`t considered previously. We`re very proud to be able to provide this innovative and valuable tool for the retail industry."
