While employee theft is a major component of retail shrinkage, it is globally an area in loss prevention that typically does not receive as much monitoring as customer theft. Research studies show, however, that the best strategy for retailers to reduce employee theft is to work systematically with internal staff inspections.

Unbiased inspection by random selection can help reduce theft and fraud, and provide a safe workplace. It can also ensure a high level of staff integrity.

Unbiased inspection

AXIS Random Selector software addresses this issue by randomly singling out individuals for inspection – for example, at exits or self-checkout counters. Use it to eliminate discrimination – or accusations of discrimination – when there’s a need to inspect items like shopping bags and backpacks. It can make what might otherwise be an uncomfortable situation less so. And it can help prevent threatening situations from developing.

AXIS Random Selector is built on advanced and proven algorithms from Cognimatics, whose programs have led in retail analytics for more than a decade. Offering high-speed execution and low memory requirements, the software has been installed in thousands of cameras worldwide.

Integration and data access

AXIS Random Selector saves data directly on each camera for up to 90 days. Its open protocol allows the data to be integrated into other systems. Users can access the data in the following ways:

  • By using a standard web browser to access the camera’s web interface, which provides live views and graphical representations of the statistics. In such a case, there is no need for an on-site server or any other hardware.
  • Through an open HTTP API in the camera, whereby you can extract real-time static raw data, as well as data for specified time periods, in various formats; for example, JSON, XML and CSV.
  • By using AXIS Store Reporter, which is a web-based service that gathers statistical data from various sources of Axis retail analytics applications and presents the data and graphical representations in one interface. Ideal for use in multi-site and multi-camera installations.
  • Through AXIS Store Data Manager, a locally run software program for easy integration of data into third-party business intelligence applications.
