3xLOGIC Delivers the Business Intelligence You Need
3xLOGIC’s Intelligent Video Analytics effectively detects, classifies and tracks video content in order to
provide real-time alerts and automatic analysis, thereby optimizing the decision making process of both
operational and security personnel with no additional hardware requirements.
Video-based Business Intelligence can be applied in two categories, Loss Prevention and Operational.
Loss Prevention: 3xLOGIC can fully integrate within your business systems providing real-time results.
When integrated with your Point-of-Sale (POS) system, VIGIL provides instant alerts to custom-defined
exceptions and pre-defined thresholds. You may want to be notified when a sales associate processes a
refund when no customer present. You may also want to know when a device was sold for less than the
advertised price. These types of exceptions can easily be added as one of thousands of events that need to be
tracked and reported on. Results are then automatically forwarded to authorized recipients providing your
business with truly effective investigation tools enabling you to make critical decisions in a timely manner.
Time is money, so the quicker you can get results, the faster your business can get back on track.
Integrating VIGIL's customizable exception reporting with your POS results in an extremely effective loss prevention tool.
