Safe & Sound: Kappy's Selects Axis Solutions
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, was selected to provide intelligent network solutions for Kappy’s Fine Wine & Spirits, a Massachusetts beverage retailer. As Kappy’s looks to remodel its existing locations and open new stores, it was important for management to attain a firmer grasp on customer behavior, inventory management and overall security.
As part of this multi-faceted system, Kappy’s turned to AXIS Camera Station video management software for its intuitive interface and remote monitoring capabilities. These features allow management to monitor multiple locations from a desktop or mobile device. In a rare emergency case, Kappy’s was able to use AXIS Camera Station to quickly view footage and get answers when they suspected an intruder was in the store.
The installation of AXIS C1004-E Network Cabinet Speakers is another helpful addition for Kappy’s. With the Axis speakers’ wide, clear dispersion, only three speakers are necessary throughout the store compared to the six or seven typically needed. Integration with the store’s cloud-based music service makes it is easy to manage the background music at any time. Kappy’s is also exploring the possibilities of utilizing these speakers for merchandising in the future. For example, integration with network cameras could trigger promotional messages as customers walk past a certain product.
In an effort to round out their all-in-one solution, Kappy’s is currently integrating AXIS People Counter and AXIS Queue Monitor video analytics to help define customer traffic patterns and drive in-store efficiency.
