Leading Retailer Selects March Networks Professional Retail Services to Optimize Business Intelligence



    OTTAWA, April 20 /CNW Telbec/ - March Networks(TM) (TSX:MN; AIM:MNW), a
leading provider of IP-based video surveillance solutions, announced today
that one of the largest retailers in the United States has selected March
Networks Professional Retail Services for approximately 1,200 of its stores.
    The consulting and software maintenance services will enable the retailer
to extract maximum value from March Networks business intelligence software
already in use in the stores to reduce shrink, decrease in-store risk and
improve overall store performance.
    The services include implementation management, shrink assessment, store
audits, and transaction profiling customization. They also include upgrading
the web-based data mining software to ensure that the retailer benefits from
the newest application features and capabilities.
    Progressive retailers use March Networks advanced video management and
data analysis solutions to combat inventory shrinkage, which costs retailers
$37 billion annually in the U.S. alone. Video surveillance and Point-of-Sale
(POS) transaction data monitoring are the two most widely used shrink
management technologies, according to a 2006 security and loss prevention
study.
    "Businesses today require comprehensive visual and business intelligence
solutions that go well beyond high performance technology," said Peter Strom,
President and CEO of March Networks. "This is further proof that our unique
ability to deliver a complete loss prevention solution through the combination
of innovative software and professional services continues to lead the
industry."
