NEW YORK, NY, NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION ANNUAL CONVENTION AND EXPO – Brickstream, a leader in behavior intelligence solutions for environments where people shop, gather, work and play, today announced that Comm-Works, a global technology integrator for multi-site organizations, has joined the ranks of its international partner network. Comm-Works specializes in scalable, high quality technology deployments for retailers and other types of businesses with multiple brick-and-mortar locations, and has installed solutions at more than 100,000 locations worldwide. The company is partnering with Brickstream to take advantage of the broad range of capabilities and accuracy delivered by Brickstream’s in-store behavior intelligence solutions, including the recently announced Brickstream LIVE platform that combines behavior, proximity and security analytics.
“We are always looking for innovative solutions that will help us meet the needs of our retail customers for the long term,” said Kevin Searight, Director of IP Video and Security at Comm- Works. “Brickstream offers an especially strong package of in-store analytic capabilities, including the combination of behavior and security intelligence delivered by its Brickstream LIVE platform. In an environment where many businesses are being tasked to do more with less, Brickstream is forward thinking and continues to add greater value to its offerings, which is completely in line with our mission of delivering scalable, high-quality solutions that grow with our clients’ requirements.”
Using Brickstream solutions, businesses with physical locations (such as retail stores, grocery chains, quick service restaurants and entertainment venues), can capture and analyze highly accurate data about visitor behavior—both at the door and throughout the store or location—in order to improve operations, security and marketing. Brickstream LIVE is the most recent addition to Brickstream’s family of behavior smart analytics devices, and is the first and only device to combine 3D customer behavior analytics, a high resolution video camera and wireless- based proximity data analytics within a single platform.
“Capturing accurate information about how many people are in a store, how long they wait in line and what they do while shopping can help retailers improve service and security, understand the impact of marketing campaigns, forecast staffing needs and more,” said Steve Jeffery, CEO of Brickstream. “We look forward to working together with Comm-Works to equip retailers with the technology and insight they need to make better decisions for their business.”
