Murphy USA standardises on 3xLOGIC business intelligence solution
3xLOGIC, Inc., a leading provider of integrated intelligent security solutions, has announced the planned nationwide deployment of the company's VIGIL surveillance systems at over 1,200 Murphy USA convenience store locations.
The new systems, currently being rolled out, are comprised of 3xLOGIC IP and hybrid appliances, cameras and business intelligence software integrated into a customised solution designed by the security integrator CBE, Inc. In addition to overall design, CBE is installing the new systems across 32 states, and will be overseeing on-going service and other needs.
Murphy USA adopted a strategic approach to surveillance system usage and organisational accountability and efficiencies. Working with CBE, they designed a system that integrates POS, cameras, audio, analytics, time and attendance, and other systems, and will utilise 3xLogic VIGIL Trends to pull all of that data into an easy-to-use dashboard that is accessible anywhere the user has an Internet connection, including mobile devices.
The impetus for this large-scale project began several years ago when Murphy USA began looking for a more robust system that would provide both tracking capabilities to reduce shrinkage and mobile access for district managers. "We looked at several integrators and vendors over the past 12 months. Midway through this process, we changed the deployment requirement to a chain-wide rollout over about 6 months rather than an incremental site-by-site approach," explained Terra D. Walker, Manager of Loss Prevention and Investigations at Murphy USA. "With this new requirement, we needed an integrator that could undertake such a massive roll out and a robust surveillance system that could provide the business intelligence needs of a large, coast-to-coast organisation."
The 3xLogic integrated solution is already providing obvious benefits for Murphy USA. "We were challenged before by having to use multiple systems to pull together relevant information," said Walker. With 3xLOGIC, all relevant information and sequenced data is coupled together in easy to review investigations."
Previously, Murphy USA's system provided no way to see who was accessing data and when. 3xLogic VIGIL Trends offers that visibility and creates accountability across the entire business. Walker again, "The goal is to have all departments use the system to help with operational efficiencies. The flexibility of the system combined with mobile accessibility and the hybrid IP and analog capabilities were major selling points for us."
"We're quite pleased with the design process and the rollout thus far. Neither CBE nor Murphy USA are interested in short-term deals. We have the same goals-a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership," Walker concluded.
