ZIPF POS analysis
CCTV supported loss prevention
POS analysis is subdivided into three areas:
- POS analysis – Weighing scales
- POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking
- POS analysis – Checkout and object tracking
POS analysis - Retail weighing scales
The POS analysis – Weighing scales leads to 100% detection of item theft directly from fresh food counters with a suitable video image of the shoplifter!
Practical example „Unpaid meat“
A customer receives a pack of meat from the fresh meat counter. The item is not paid for.
The POS analysis – Weighing scales automatically detects that the item has not been paid for and immediately allocates the respective video sequence to the unpaid pack of meat in order to identify the customer.
The POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking (see below) then determines within seconds whether the potential shoplifter at the checkout has accidentally left the item in his trolley instead of putting it on the conveyor belt.
Summary: Every loss from the fresh food counters can be solved automatically by displaying the corresponding video pictures. The clear-up rate for shoplifting is increasing dramatically.
POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking
POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking enables rapid search for and display of a potential shoplifter at the checkout. This supersedes the need for time-consuming rewinding.
POS analysis – Checkout and object tracking
POS analysis – Checkout has a user-friendly filter function that enables checkout data to be found and displayed in the video image synchronously with the process. This enables rapid and reliable checking of the sale where there is a suspicion of shoplifting. If there is a reasonable suspicion of manipulation at the checkout, POS analysis – Checkout can also be used to rapidly clear up these cases subject to the relevant data protection regulations.
Object tracking automatically assigns missing articles or empty packaging to the people who have taken these goods. This allows potential shoplifters to be rapidly captured on video
Practical example: „Empty Packaging“
A member of the supermarket staff finds some empty packaging on a shelf. The person responsible is automatically displayed with the help of object tracking and rapidly identified at the checkout by means of POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking. With POS analysis – Checkout it is possible to reliably determine that the article was not paid for.
Practical example: „Disappearing articles“
A member of the supermarket staff discovers that some high-priced items are missing from the shelf. The people that have removed these items are automatically displayed with the help of object tracking and rapidly identified again at the checkout by means of POS analysis – Shoplifter tracking. With POS analysis – Checkout it is possible to reliably establish which customer has not paid for the item.
Practical example: „Supporting the store detective“
The store detective is following a suspicious person live on video. As soon as the potential shoplifter reaches the checkout area, the store detective switches to the video picture of the checkout area and, with the aid of POS analysis – Checkout, is able to detect whether even the smallest item has been paid for or whether he has to intervene.
Practical example: „Entering minus amounts“
The specific suspicion is one of „entering minus amounts without customer reference and the purchase of goods“.
The POS analysis – Checkout immediately confirms or disproves the suspicion at the push of a button by displaying the minus values and the corresponding video sequence. This ensures that the POS analysis – Checkout is restricted to suspected employees.
Summary: Every specific well-founded suspicion of dishonesty can be solved automatically by displaying the relevant video sequence.
In order to counter privacy concerns in the case of a well-founded suspicion of manipulation at the checkout, it is possible, having entered a password, for responsible operators to temporarily use POS analysis – Checkout (e.g. for a period of a week) in order to rapidly clear up these cases if other measures for checking stock losses have been exhausted or are deemed disproportionate.
