Avigilon, the performance and value leader in high definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance systems, today announced that Trend Motors Ltd., a Volkswagen Dealership located in Morris County, New Jersey, has deployed the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to secure its property, protect assets, ensure employee accountability, and reduce the liability costs associated with repairing vehicles damaged while on site.
“Before installing the Avigilon HD Surveillance System, we were spending over $1000 a month on repairs that resulted from damage that no one would take responsibility for—a cost to our business that I simply could not justify,” said Adam M. Greene, president of Trend Motors Ltd. “Delivering exceptional image quality and advanced management tools for quick and positive identification, the Avigilon HD Surveillance System saves time and—for every business—time is a huge asset.”
Trend Motors Ltd. seamlessly manages the Avigilon HD Surveillance System using Avigilon Control Center Network Video Management Software (NVMS) with HD Stream Management, which was built from the ground up to manage HD surveillance video. The dealership installed 5MP Avigilon HD cameras to monitor the exterior of the property, including all entrances and exits, a storage area, and employee smoking area. Trend Motors Ltd. also installed several Avigilon Analog Video Encoders to enhance the performance of its analog cameras, which cover the service bays, showroom, storage, and customer lounge. Storing up to four weeks of footage, users monitor the Avigilon HD Surveillance System from their desktops.
The Avigilon HD Surveillance System has proven to be a great business tool, delivering a strong return on investment by cutting investigation time and reducing liability costs. Trend Motors Ltd. also leverages the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to resolve employee productivity concerns, customer service issues, and protect assets to achieve further operational efficiencies and cost savings. Local law enforcement officials also used Trend Motors Ltd.’s Avigilon HD Surveillance System in the successful investigation of an incident at a neighboring business.
“Like all successful businesses, Trend Motors Ltd. is focused on delivering excellent customer service and achieving tangible operational efficiencies through the deployment of effective business strategies and advanced technologies that improve profitability,” said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. “Armed with a powerful investigative tool like the Avigilon HD Surveillance System, Trend Motors Ltd. can achieve productivity gains, reduce investigation hours, and increase employee accountability to lower liability costs and, ultimately, strengthen its bottom line.”
