Integrated Security For Retail Stores

Security systems are one of the few variables within a retailer’s control and, when optimised, can play an important part in delivering to the bottom line.

PACOM is expert at implementing retail security systems that help its customers run their businesses more smoothly, cost effectively and securely.

Beyond critical deliverables in asset protection, staff and customer safety, PACOM’s solution allows retailers – both large and small – to manage themselves more efficiently identifying risks to the bottom line caused by:

  • inventory shrinkage
  • staff turnover
  • false alarms
  • environmental losses

PROTECT ALL YOUR FACILITIES

PACOM’s retail security solution goes way beyond conventional alarm panels concentrated only upon sending alarm information to customers.

By contrast PACOM’s powerful communications platform integrates business critical applications, legacy security products (such as old alarm panels, analog and digital video), wireless security devices and access control into real-time, at-a-glance control over the entire business.

The technology allows retail security customers to manage tasks remotely from anywhere on their IP network. Alarm system monitoring can be in-house or outsourced as PACOM’s technology adapts to either situation and can even segment monitoring to multiple service providers.

POWERFUL SECURITY SOFTWARE AT THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM

PACOM’s powerful GMS (Graphical Management System) software allows customers remote, real-time, at-a-glance control of all branches, distribution centres and corporate offices. A single keystroke can change PIN codes and users, print access cards, centrally configure individual alarm panels and remotely broadcast upgrades and changes eliminating the need for site visits.

Users can also:

  • verify alarm events immediately with integrated digital video capabilities
  • search and report easily on one specific site or event or generate customized reports from thousands of sites – and do all of this from anywhere on the network

GMS is entirely flexible to the needs of each client situation and for each individual site easily accommodating past investments into hardware and components.

Best of all GMS eliminates significant costs meaning that customers can expect a return on investment (ROI) within two years. PACOM achieves this by using the customer’s internal IP network with no requirement for dedicated telephone lines. Remote management greatly reduces the need for site visits and allows the customer to manage the system internally, removing the operational cost of external management contracts.
