Panasonic Facial Recognition Contributes To Store’s Retail Award

Panasonic’s facial recognition technology has helped ‘Jumbo Ten Brink Food’ to win an award for the ‘safest store in the Netherlands.’ 

Jumbo Ten Brink Food introduced the face server into their store environment in March 2017 after discovering that almost 80% of shoplifting took place via large shopping bags. Since then, Jumbo has installed 80 Panasonic cameras in-store, helping them to win the award.

“The moment that a known shoplifter attempts to re-enter the store, an internal alarm is triggered, and we can take the best suitable action,” explains Edwin ten Brink, founder of Jumbo Ten Brink Food stores. “Thanks to the Panasonic face matching server, Jumbo has been proclaimed the safest store in the Netherlands."

In the following video, Edwin ten Brink describes detailed, which technologies from Panasonic are used in his stores, how they work and which benefits they bring to the stores.
