Whether a single camera or a fully networked system, CCTV can be a powerful deterrent to intruders and theft. But how else can you benefit? The following list contains 21 great business uses where our own customers have said they get financial benefit:

  • Accident analysis

  • Checking customer service levels

  • Seeing how many staff are smoking together out the back of the premises

  • Ensuring Point of Sale material is displayed

  • Timing waiting staff to ensure food does not stay on the food pass too long

  • Monitoring the length of the checkout queue is not too long

  • Encouraging a manager to not sit in his office when the business is busy

  • Reviewing the quality of packing

  • Keeping an eye on stock levels

  • Watching customers as a shoplifting deterrence

  • Developing working methods

  • Dispute management

  • Energy management

  • Identifying and rewarding good staff

  • Monitoring the customer journey through a store

  • Ensuring food hygiene

Picaw customers can access their videos at any time via the Internet and as part of our continually improving service, all of our customers have the option to access both live and recorded video footage using our great new iPad/iPhone app.

More about Peter Williams ...

While working with Volvo in the late 70’s I realised the way forward in international component distribution was computing. I created a company distributing components for several international manufacturers using the 'new' computers of the day. I quickly realised we needed our own programs so started writing distribution software. I grew the company by developing the software until I eventually sold my shares 20 years later, but retaining the rights to the software. I continued developing the software and supplied it to several similar companies where the software is still used today.

During 1999, I was asked by a friend to develop a facility to video the live sea conditions on the south coast accessible on the internet. Working with a Linux software developer I created our first remote video application. The internet boom of 2000 allowed me to develop a commercial application forming the basis of our systems today.
