Although the threat comes from multiple sources, studies have shown that theft is most likely to come from within the business rather than from shoplifters. Honeywell addresses the problem with solutions that can gather and store transaction data from cash registers, ATMs, slot machines, cash counters, wide-area people-counting and other data sources and combine them with fully synchronized video.

Honeywell’s Integrated Data Manager (IDM) is a cost-effective solution to aid in detecting internal shrinkage. It is scalable from just a few registers to thousands of registers across multiple sites.

IDM can generate customized searches and daily summaries as well as exception reports to pinpoint suspect activity, in seconds. Investigators can quickly filter and graph transaction data by specific search criteria. In addition to detecting theft, IDM can monitor employee productivity and help enhance customer service. Reports may be emailed to specified personnel, so relevant departments can be automatically informed.

In addition to highlighting exceptions for future analysis, IDM reports can be exported to maximize flexibility. IDM is also able to send events to Honeywell’s MAXPRO VMS video management system, to execute further actions on the video system if required. When combined with Honeywell’s High-Definition IP cameras, no detail is left to doubt.
