Asset Surveillance

Asset surveillance can range from overt audit and surveillance of key assets in the field for operational, inventory and maintenance purposes, to covert strategies to gain intelligence, conduct a sting operation and catch thieves in the act.


Asset Audit

If some of your assets are located in remote or potentially dangerous areas, or you have assets positioned globally and want better visibility, then a remote asset audit via surveillance may be the right solution for you.

There are several points in your supply chain where your assets may not be available to you. They could be in a third-party Warehouse, trackside or in an area that is potentially dangerous to access, like a dockside. By conducting your asset audit remotely using Smarter Technologies Group’s surveillance technology, you can ensure you meet health & safety requirements, gain full visibility over your assets throughout the entire supply chain and predict your maintenance schedules.

Covert surveillance is carried out in a number of different verticals, to combat both internal and external threats. For example, we have clients who use our surveillance equipment to secure ATMs in order to gain intelligence on unauthorised user behaviour and target specific gangs and others who use surveillance to give them total visibility and security for high value retail operations. In large warehouses, where staff turnover can be high and various recruitment channels are used, it is easy to unknowingly employ organised crime gang members. When a client’s warehouse and distribution organisation has been targeted, the threat has usually originated from an internal security breach by a member of staff. A typical example would be the reverse logistics chain whereby the losses or shrinkage occur when the packages are sent out for a delivery that fails. This package may well make it back to the local hub but then may never make it back to the regional or national distribution centre. In our experience, with regard to retail crime, around 66% occurs from people within the organisation and the remaining third from external sources.
