If you’re headed to Delaware for the Delaware Food Industry Council (DFIC) Loss Prevention Symposium, you should be sure to check out the FaceFirst booth. We’ll be giving live demos of our powerful next-generation surveillance system Sentinel-IQ. 

Sentinel-IQ was designed with retail loss prevention in mind. It offers grocery stores and other retailers the ability to instantly identify dishonest customers who have either shoplifted in the past, caused a disturbance in the store or are suspected of being members of organized retail crime gangs.  

So how effective is facial recognition for retail loss prevention? We recently conducted a study of 100 individual grocery locations using our face recognition surveillance. One result was a strong uptick in shoplifting arrests. In fact, one in five apprehensions could directly be traced to the FaceFirst face recognition surveillance system. But what might be more important is that our customers received more than 15,000 real-time alerts during the study, which may have deterred those dishonest customers from ever even committing a crime. 

Since the study, our system has only grown more powerful. We’ve made it faster, more accurate and easier to scale across hundreds of locations than ever before. So if you’re going to be in Deleware for this symposium, be sure to see how we are helping major grocery chains prevent crime and radically reduce external shrink by more than 30 percent.
