Additional units installed at another Distribution Center in Chicago.
Barranquilla, Colombia, June 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- View Systems, Inc.’s (VSYM) (the “Company”), announces Ingram Micro, a global distributor of technology and supply chain services with close to $50 Billion in sales, reported the Company’s ViewScan Concealed Weapons Detector has dramatically reduced theft at their massive 1 MM Sq. Ft. distribution center in Memphis, TN. The ViewScan solution was such a success for Ingram Micro’s Memphis facility that they rolled out in the Chicago Distribution Center.

“Theft has dramatically decreased since we deployed ViewScan….,” reports Cris Paffrath, Ingram Micro’s U.S. Director of Safety and Security. “A key reason for this is because ViewScan scans ferrous metals from head to toe, including the ground area that is often missed by other systems,” continued Mr. Paffrath. His team also reported that items of interest smuggled in shoes weren’t being detected. Due to rebar feedback issues with standard metal detectors, the space six inches off the ground was often vulnerable—ideal for in-shoe theft.
When most of the world thinks about security screenings, they think about stopping “items of interest” from entering a building or event. When asset protection managers consider such screenings, they think about stopping such assets from leaving a location. No large warehouse is immune to theft, even across organizations that vet and trust their associates. It’s impossible to know the intention of every visitor, contractor or seasonal staffer entering your facility. As Safety and Security Director, this was an ongoing challenge for Mr. Paffrath.
“If you can name the most popular technology on the planet, we probably have it in one of our 12 distribution facilities in the U.S.,” shares Paffrath. “Not only were we experiencing loss of items such as earbuds and Apple watches, but the everyday associate experience was negative due to our long screening process with traditional metal detectors.”
Every person safely passing through the portal is scanned and can be archived with a snapshot image, date and time, threshold settings, sensor readings and graphical display. Archiving can be controlled at the workstation with the flexibility to monitor anyone entering or leaving a building, including after hours. Unlike traditional walkthrough systems, ViewScan is a completely passive detection solution. That means its sensor technology accurately detects the location and number of items of interest, while ignoring personal artifacts like coins, keys and jewelry. It can also detect and locate objects that have been covered or masked with materials such as aluminum foil, lead and plastic.
View Systems, Inc. has a licensing agreement with IP Video Corp. to assemble and distribute ViewScan units in the United States. According to Mr. Paffrath, “…thanks to ViewScan’s affordability, the future partnership between Ingram Micro and IPVideo is bright.”
View Systems, Inc. has been making upgrades and modifications to ViewScan to rapidly expand in the international market. They have begun to fulfill ViewScan international orders and shipped units from the U.S. while they begin setting up their assembly plant in Barranquilla, Colombia as planned.
“I look forward to coming down to Colombia to begin rolling out the next generation of ViewScan products, my engineers and I have been designing new features that will greatly enhance its functionality and affordability that will open new markets around the World.” stated Gunther Than, View Systems, Inc. Director and Developer of ViewScan.
John Campo, President of View Systems, Inc. added, “Asset Protection is second only to safety for a major corporation, ViewScan catches visitors/employees coming and going. Most people don’t know you can smuggle small electronics in your shoes and go undetected with conventional metal detectors, well not anymore.”
In addition, View Systems, Inc. would like to announce they anticipate filing their annual report in the next 7 days or so and will be making further announcements regarding their other businesses.
