RESTON, Va. -- IPIX Corporation, a premier supplier of digital surveillance and immersive imaging solutions, announced it has partnered with ClickIt Inc., a leading developer and distributor of digital video solutions for the retail market, to provide a comprehensive network video solution combining IPIXâ€™s high resolution, 360-degree cameras with ClickItâ€™s digital video recorders.
The partnership of IPIXâ€™s CommandViewâ„¢ cameras with ClickIt's SmartCamXi DVRs brings retailers cutting edge security, increased vision, enhanced market data collection and sophisticated patron tracking â€“ all while requiring the installation and maintenance of fewer cameras.
â€œThis solution empowers retailers to clamp down on the petty shoplifting and unsubstantiated lawsuits that add up to significant monetary losses each year,â€ said Clara Conti, CEO of IPIX. â€œThe ability to record the 360-degree image, go back into that image and look around puts security personnel right into the scene. IPIX and ClickItâ€™s partnership offers a solution that brings retail to the next level of premise security.â€
Shoplifting costs the retail industry more than $31 billion each year, with employee theft and shrinkage accounting for the largest losses in corporate revenue. Providing retail and loss prevention personnel with a surveillance and data-management solution reduces employee theft and fraudulent liability suits, including on-the-job employee injury or slip-and-fall claims. The system is also a tool for gaining valuable marketing data, enabling users to see everywhere customers go.
â€œThis partnership forwards ClickItâ€™s mission of providing the most advanced technology solutions to everyday business problems,â€ said Jim Carey, CEO of ClickIt Inc. â€œWe are very pleased to be working with IPIX.â€
