Supply Chain Optimization Through Video Analytics, Is There Anything Out There?

Hi- I'm designing a system (IP Video Surveillance & Access Control) for a large food manufacturer. They are interested in utilizing video analytics to help in overall supply chain management of inventory, storage (of inventory), tracking and movement of material. Overall, they want to improve their process, reduce cost and best utilize there space and people. At this point we are planning on utilizing Onvif Profile S megapixel cameras with Milestone Xprotect (+) as the VMS. Considering it's still in the planning stages we are open to other options but would love the video analytics to be a plug-in our utilize a separate stream from the cameras. All-in-all there is around 250 cameras in this one location with a new one going up with similar camera counts soon.
