With 13 locations spanning across three states, Fun Town RV is the nation’s top-selling towable RV dealer. As the Director of IT and Marketing, Malachi Salazar makes it his mission to provide customers with the service they need to find the best RV for their next adventure. From having a wide selection of recreational vehicles always available on-site to hosting customer events to attract new customers, video security plays an evolving role in keeping everything from vehicles to guests safe and secure.
“Our Cleburne location sells 400 RVs a month, and at any point in time we have up to 500 vehicles on the lot. We needed a better way to maintain visibility over these widespread areas, as well as our four indoor showrooms.”
Upgrading to Enterprise Cloud-Based Surveillance
To reach the level of security he required, Malachi had to upgrade the company’s video surveillance system from a prosumer- to enterprise-grade model. Their previous solution was a minimal monetary investment and felt like a good idea at the time, but the price reflected in all its components. System features were limited, and grainy image quality made it impossible to see what was happening in the scene.
“Being number one in our industry, we want to partner with other industry leaders who are providing the best in their products and services. Verkada had all the features, ease of use, and scalability that we expect and require from an enterprise-grade solution.”
Since replacing the legacy system with Verkada’s solution, Malachi and his team are able to effectively surveil the property corner-to-corner—from indoor showrooms and offices to outdoor entrances and parking lots.
