For some retailers, slim margins and tight budgets have made many of the more advanced security technologies seem out of reach. Even though new capabilities have improved the utility of security products, retail operations are seldom early adopters. However, now is a great time to take another look, as security technology has a lot to offer any retailer. Today's video and physical security systems are well-equipped to serve retailers' ongoing requirements to do more with less by providing greater value. Solutions can be tailored to adapt to changing retail environments and to perform dependably at multiple locations. Now, there are many compelling advantages to expanding implementation of video surveillance technology in the traditionally cost-conscious world of retailing.
