Milestone VMS, BCDVideo Storage, and Oncam Cameras Lead to “Remarkable” ROI
UK’s Leading Logistics Company upgrades to Milestone XProtect VMS and Oncam 360° cameras to protect people and premises
COPENHAGEN – July 26, 2016 – Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has collaborated with Oncam and AsPro Security to deliver a cost-effective security solution to one of the UK’s leading logistics company. The solution combines Milestone XProtect Professional software and BCDVideo storage with Oncam 360° cameras that provide comprehensive coverage of the site, resulting in full situational awareness.
The previous video management system at the international logistics and supply-chain company could no longer provide all the coverage and information needed for their UK site. Specializing in surface transportation, freight brokerage, warehousing and distribution, ample coverage and image clarity were vital for verifying compensation claims and for reinforcing health and safety policies.
Independent security consultant AsPro Security redesigned the site’s video monitoring system, incorporating Milestone XProtect Professional software with Oncam’s 360° camera technology. The unique pairing has improved adherence to safety policies and guidelines and saved approximately $65,000 in the first three months of the installation.
“The ROI of the upgraded video monitoring system has been remarkable,” says AsPro’s Technical Manager, Nick Sergeant. “Within the first three months, the site saved approximately $65,000 in false and erroneous claims, which paid for the upgraded system almost twice over.”
Video monitoring has not only helped the company with saving money but also prevented incidents and injuries to maintain an excellent safety culture. Extremely detailed footage retrieved from Oncam 360° cameras has been incorporated into safety training at the site to help communicate health and safety policies, as well as procedural guidelines, more effectively. As a result, staff have gained a better understanding of how they make the working environment safer for everyone.
“The use of 360˚cameras as a business tool is growing fast,” says Scott Brothers, VP of Business Development at Oncam. “They’ve already proved themselves in retail and education, and these excellent outcomes show how they can play a critical part in improving health and safety and operational efficiency in the logistics industry.”
