Murphy USA Standardizes Store Surveillance
EL DORADO, Ark. — Murphy USA Inc. rolled out 3xLOGIC Inc.'s VIGIL surveillance system across its network of more than 1,200 convenience stores.
The new system, which features cameras and business intelligence software integrated into a customized solution designed by security integrator CBE Inc., is in response to Murphy USA seeking a robust system that would provide tracking capabilities, reduced 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 chainwide rollout over about six months rather than an incremental site-by-site approach," said 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 rollout, and a robust surveillance system that could provide the business intelligence needs of a large, coast-to-coast organization."
According to 3xLOGIC, Murphy USA's previous surveillance system provided no way of seeing who was accessing data and when. Now, VIGIL provides this service and creates accountability across the entire business.
"We're quite pleased with the design process and the rollout thus far," noted Walker. "Neither CBE nor Murphy USA are interested in short-term deals. We have the same goals: a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership."
Westminster, Colo.-based 3xLOGIC is known for providing complete, easy-to-use surveillance solutions that seamlessly integrate audio, video and disparate data.
El Dorado-based Murphy USA Inc. was spun off as a pure-play convenience store and gas station operator from Murphy Oil Corp. on Sept. 3, 2013.
