Xeoma: Video surveillance and cameras for cars, delivery tracking and employee monitoring
Transportation and logistics are quite specific kinds of business that include various numbers of operations and participants. Those who are into this business know how challenging it is to control all chains of operations in the whole process.
There are at least three parties participating in a simplest transportation process: a manufacturer, a customer and a cargo company or a logistics department of manufacturer’s company. Consequently it might be really hard to define who’s exactly responsible for the product’s theft or damage. Is it a cargo company loader who wasn’t careful enough handling the goods? Did he drop one of the packages and broke the product inside? Or did he just decide to take one extra pack thinking no one will find out, cause it’s just going to take too much time and effort for the boss to investigate? Sure it is. Unless the boss has an impartial witness – a video record from a video surveillance system.
Thereby, main purposes of video surveillance in transportation (car DVR and simple cameras for cars) are delivery tracking and employee monitoring. Moreover, it is just indispensable in warehouses where the working areas sometimes are so huge that managers have no chance to be in full and constant control of what’s going on. Trucking and shipping terminals are mostly located in industrial or suburban areas that are open and hard to protect. This increases the number of security threats posed to trucking and shipping companies, including vandalism and perimeter protection. Logistics video surveillance will surely help to look after the loaders and other staff while doing some paper and administrative work in an office.
Of course, also in transportation industry you may trust your employees, but you can never be 100% sure. Unless you use video surveillance, for example, a car DVR or cameras for cars. There’s absolutely no need to turn to a security agency, you can easily do everything yourself. All you need is special software, several cameras (according to the space you’d like to supervise) and merely a few hours to adjust and understand the system.

Its user-oriented intuitive interface allows you to choose those features and options that you need to use for delivery tracking and employee monitoring in transportation industry.

Moreover, the License Plate recognition module allows you to easily automate the entry to the terrirory of your enterprise.
