SUPERIOR, CO — March 6, 2019
California-based convenience store and gas station operator, Au Energy announced that it has renewed its contract with managed video and loss prevention leader, Envysion for a three year period.
The company currently owns and operates more than 130 Shell gas stations and the upscale Loop Neighborhood convenience stores across Northern California. Leveraging Envysion’s powerful combination of managed video with side by side POS data, Au Energy has continued to shrink its industry-leading loss percentage, while mitigating risk and improving customer experience in its stores.
Envysion’s Managed Video Solution supports unobtrusive, high-definition cameras and microphones that help Au managers and other leaders keep tabs on a variety of in-store activities and customer interactions as they’re happening—viewable in the store or remotely from any connected device using the Envysion app for maximum convenience and responsiveness.

Combined with POS transactional data from payment systems pioneer Verifone, Envysion gives store managers and company executives a 360-degree perspective of its operations across every store to tamp down on suspicious activity, and a robust system for delivering ongoing employee training to foster a welcoming environment and create a superior customer experience.
