Comm-Works Leverages Their Global Presence, to Reduce Shrinkage and Improve Operational Efficiencies Across All of Your Store Locations

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - February 12, 2014) - Comm-Works, a top IT integration company, has announced the launch of IP Video & Security or IPVS service offering. With expertise in cabling and infrastructure, assessment, deployment, installation and renowned project management capabilities -- adding IPV&S is a natural progression to becoming a full service solution provider, eliminating the complexity of managing multiple projects and vendors.

IP Video & Security systems lower the vulnerability of shrinkage, increase employee effectiveness, and increase the overall return on investment by providing better capabilities to store, retrieve and analyze data. IPVS solutions ensure that the most common retail issues do not become problematic.

The 2011 National Retail Security Survey, a collaborative effort by the University of Florida and the National Retail Federation, estimated that up to 1.41% of a retailer's profit can disappear due to shrinkage. This equates to a $34.5 billion dollar industry issue. In the US, shoplifters and employees account almost equally for their contributions to shrinkage. The proficiencies of IP video analytics and the value of real-time auditing systems reduces retailer shrinkage. New store models and a move to mobile checkout solutions illustrate the need for updated IPVS solutions to provide adequate visibility through the entire retail space.

"What we're proposing isn't a revolution; it's an 'evolution' to what we already do. By offering project management and deployment expertise with IPVS, Comm-Works provides a complete solution, which sets us apart from our competitors," stated Kevin Searight, director of IPVS for Comm-Works. With constant improvement in the IPVS Industry, it is imperative that businesses build the correct IT infrastructure that will allow for functional and financial benefits in the long term.

By offering a true end-to-end total solution, Comm-Works eliminates the need for the customer to coordinate multiple facets of a project, increasing ROI. As stated by Kevin Searight, "With the ongoing development of IP-based security solutions, the design and deployment are getting more and more complex. Comm-Works' true value lies in the design, implementation and ongoing hosted services that we can deliver to our customers."
