Despite the use of scanners and modern inventory management it still happens that goods are lost or stored incorrectly. Stockouts are the result. To solve this problem, video cameras can be used to document the goods flow. To know the exact position of the goods at the time of scanning makes it possible to select the relevant footage of the video cameras very quickly. Our solution combines location and video documentation of the scanned good, and allows its fast retrieval in case of loss.
