3VR Strengthens Sales Team with Retail Industry Veteran, Enhances Customer Insights Product with New Features Designed for Retailers

January 15, 2016 | Press Releases

Michael Slevin Joins 3VR as Sales Director, with Focus on Retail Industry

Enhancements to Customer Insights to be Demonstrated at Retail’s BIG Show

SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK CITY  Jan. 152016 – 3VR, the video technology and data company, today announced that it has hired retail industry veteran Michael Slevin as a sales director.  In this role, he will create opportunities for 3VR’s retail analytics products – VisionPoint™ Dashboard and Video Management System (VMS) – by generating and maintaining relationships with retail customers and channel partners.  Slevin joins 3VR from Tyco, where he spent more than 15 years in a variety of sales roles, cultivating awareness and demand for the company’s retail solutions.   

 

In addition, 3VR has made enhancements to its Customer Insights product by adding the ability to correlate visitor counts within various zones.  This allows retailers to count people in different areas of a store at any given time, such as an in-store pharmacy, in-store classes, or back office conference rooms.  The information can be compared to total traffic across various time frames for single stores or multiple stores, helping to establish trends across locations or times of day.  3VR has also released a new feature that can establish real-time occupancy metrics, helping retailers know whether the store – or an area of the store – is approaching an unsafe and overcrowded situation.     

 

“Retail is an important market for us, and we are happy to be strengthening both our team and product offering,” said Jeff Karnes, senior vice president of marketing and operations for 3VR.  “We welcome Michael to the company and look forward to his contributions as we continue to innovate and grow our customer base.”   

 

3VR offers retail marketing, loss prevention and operations executives an end-to-end solution that delivers real-time security and customer insights to improve store operations and increase sales.  3VR mines in-store video for information about customers and operations, which enables retailers to better the omni-channel experience by responding quickly to customer needs and market trends.  Video data is further enhanced by putting it in context with other data sources such as point-of-sale (POS) software, inventory controls and location-based technology. 

 

3VR is demonstrating its new people counting analytics for the first time at Retail’s BIG Show from Jan. 17-19, in New York City.  Interested retailers are invited to visit booth No. 937 for more information.
