Z Energy fuels its holistic security strategy with Axis
200+ fuel stations in New Zealand are now safer thanks to Axis high-definition IP
“We take safety extremely seriously, which is why we wanted the best holistic surveillance system possible. That sends a powerful message to our staff, customers and any would-be criminals.” Mark Forsyth, Z Energy, General Manager of Retail.
Z Energy was looking for a strategic technology partner with the ability to design and execute an end-to-end CCTV solution, including high definition network video cameras to enhance security in its 200+ sites across New Zealand. Staff and customer safety, as well as asset protection and reliability were the top priorities for Z Energy.
Z Energy, with the help of its appointed strategic technology partner Focus Digital Security, upgraded its security camera fleet to Axis solutions in an $8 million nationwide rollout. Axis products were chosen for their high quality and their seamless Video Management Software (VMS) compatibility, in a competitive tender against ten other companies. The $8 million project was a significant investment, to date more than 200 Z Energy fuel stations are equipped with the new surveillance system, with more than 2500 Axis network cameras deployed.
Axis network cameras now provide Z Energy staff and customers the highest level of protection. Through acting both as a deterrent and monitoring system, incidents can be easily identified and assets are now better protected. Axis solutions have improved Z Energy’s security and are helping the company to drastically reduce fuel theft and deter offending and theft on their retail sites. Focus Digital Security successfully delivered the project on time and within budget. The surveillance system and customised Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) solution has been mandated for all future sites.
