While many retailers continue to keep in-store and on-line interactions separate, the leading retailers understand that all channels must be seamlessly integrated to help ensure success — including optimizing logistics for a smarter shopping experience, managing or sourcing on-line inventory to respond to consumer demand, striking the right balance between customer satisfaction and maximising return, and space optimization in the store itself.

You need to establish a team with complimentary capabilities, skills, and resources; then leverage each part for what it does best. It is frustrating to use a technology for something it’s not built to do, and just as frustrating to expect a service provider to do things beyond their capability — regardless of their claims during the sales cycle. So don’t do that — build your security monitoring program to give all parties the best chance of success.
