Mester Grønn

Mester Grønn is the largest flower retailer in Norway. They have over 130 stores all across the country and more than 1400 employees. Quality has always come first, ever since the two brothers and founders opened the first store in 1983. Their vision is to spread joy, and they have been progressive pioneers within fair trade and technology. Mester Grønn was one of the first flower retailers offering the option to order online — all the way back in the ’90s.


The benefits speak for themself — the system is cost-effective, easy to use and security and closing procedures are now more efficient and less time-consuming.

Challenge

When we started working together with Mester Grønn, the aim was to provide better security solutions for their headquarter. We installed Ava Aware and Ava Dome cameras to monitor and secure this part of their business. Many of Mester Grønn’s stores are located inside shopping malls.

The closing procedures were time-consuming and complex and depended on heavy and expensive roll-up doors to secure their inventory in the stores during the night. In addition, manual maintenance and janitor services were both time and cost-in-efficient.

Though the operations in the office and stores are somewhat different, we discovered that we could solve a variety of challenges using the same technology.

Solution

Using Ava Dome security camera, Mester Grønn replaced the physical barriers and roll-up doors in their stores and created virtual lines instead. The virtual lines or barriers outlined the stores, like a digital and invisible fence.

Should anyone cross the line, a message is played through the speaker system. The message kindly informs that the store is currently closed and under video surveillance, welcoming them back during opening hours. Security guards are notified when anyone trespasses and stay behind the virtual lines for an extended time.

The Ava Dome camera helps Mester Grønn focus on the events that demand immediate action and give them a good overview of the stores at any time. They also use the cameras to monitor how many people are in the stores and use the data to improve their staffing.

The Ava Dome cameras are robust and only takes minutes to install and start using. That is great news when you manage over 130 stores.

Their pioneering spirit made selecting an alternative and modern security solution an easy choice. The benefits speak for themself — the system is cost-effective, easy to use and security and closing procedures are now more efficient and less time-consuming.
