If you’ve been to the Hampshire town of Romsey, you’ll no doubt have visited Bradbeers department store. The family-owned retail company Bradbeers has been in business since the start of Queen Victorias reign in 1837 and operates from four main sites, in three towns on the south coast.
With department stores in New Milton and Romsey and two furniture stores in New Milton and Southampton. At 45,000 square feet, the Hedge End furniture store is the largest independent furniture shop on the south coast.
“Our existing CCTV system was fairly old” explains Mark of Bradbeers. “More than that, it was piecemeal in design, because cameras had been added in response to business need over a period of time”. We wanted an integrated system that enabled us to protect the whole store”
iFacility designed a bespoke and carefully planned system to minimise disruption in the busy retail environment, all at Bradbeers have been delighted with the new set-up and says it has already helped reduce losses.
A total of 42 HD IP CCTV cameras were installed. They were positioned in busy areas, with multiple cameras monitoring the tills and remote access for all managers so that they can view any camera local on through a tablet or smart phone.
iFacilitys professional installation process, designed to minimise disrupt on in the busy retail environment, Bradbeers has been delighted with the new set-up, and says it has already helped reduce losses.
“iFacility staff were professional, efficient and insightful throughout” concludes Mark. “Their team took the trouble to understand our business and specify a system that would respond to our needs. I have been very impressed by the technology, and the enhancement it has brought to our business, as well as by iFacilitys first-rate customer care”
