Lighten your LP caseload

Inventory shrink cost retailers $46.8 billion in 2017, with shoplifting and organized retail crime accounting for a large percentage of those losses. Fight back with intelligent video that proactively alerts you to suspicious transactions and other potentially problematic activity in your stores. Just set Searchlight to find what you’re looking for – unusual voids or refunds at the point-of-sale (POS), or backdoor theft – and let the software do the rest.
