New Video-based Business Intelligence Dashboards And Reporting Tools From March Networks

Product Profile

Used by leading banks and retail organizations worldwide to extract valuable information on customer service, merchandising, operations, compliance and more, March Networks Searchlight™ helps businesses improve performance and profitability. Integrating clear surveillance video, business data and highly-accurate analytics, the software also enables organizations to proactively detect fraud and theft, and reduce investigation times by as much as 90%.

With March Networks’ Searchlight 4.6 release, customers now benefit from new dashboards and reporting capabilities that make it even easier to analyze, compare and share critical information.

  • Summary Dashboard Views And Drill-Down Filtering
    Available in Searchlight’s Business Analytics reporting tool, the new dashboards enable users to compare aggregated data and trends from multiple locations more effectively, based on their own key performance indicators (KPIs).

Users can filter data by analytic, site or customized grouping across their organization, and quickly drill-down to a granular level when needed. A retail operations manager, for example, could view people counts from all locations, then drill down to get exact numbers for each of the four entrances at a single site. A district manager could do the same to view the information from his district only. Users can also save their own custom reports and dashboard views for convenience.

  • Automatic Email Notifications With Images 
    This new feature in Searchlight’s Operations Audit enables organizations to share snapshots (in low or high definition) by email with select users on a set schedule. The reports can include images from all cameras at each site, or from select cameras only, such as all front entrance images. 

    A large March Networks retail customer is already using this feature to provide district managers with a daily overview of their showroom floors, and reported a 30% improvement in merchandising compliance within four months. 
  • Multiple Image Export To Email
    Another Operations Audit addition, this practical feature makes sharing video images quick and easy. Users simply right-click and select the images they want to export, and the software will automatically add them to the user’s email application as attachments.

Other new Searchlight features include the ability to automatically export Business Analytics data from all sites, cameras and zones on a set schedule, ensuring that key reports are always ready and easily accessible. As well, new embedded hyperlinks in the software’s Business Rules Summary email notifications allow users – in particular loss and fraud prevention investigators – to move quickly into the software to view video evidence and the exact exceptions results.

“When customers start using Searchlight, two things usually happen fairly quickly. First, they are thrilled with the business insights the software provides, and second, they start brainstorming about new ways to apply that information and who in the organization could also benefit,” said Douglas Wong, Vertical Software Applications Product Manager, March Networks. “Several of the new capabilities we’ve introduced have been inspired by our customers and we look forward to demonstrating them to partners and prospects.”
