Safety is no accident. Your operations are really only as safe as you make them. Keeping your retail or restaurant premises safe and secure for both your employees and your customers requires a conscious effort, diligence and the right tools for the job.
We live in a much different world today than retailers and QSR operators of the past. The days of posting a list of safety precautions on the wall in the break room are gone.
While we’re not trying to paint too dark of a picture, the statistics speak for themselves.
- It’s estimated that US retail companies lose $37 billion annually from stolen product.
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the number of assaults at fast-service restaurants is twice that of full-service restaurants.
- More than 10 million people have been caught shoplifting in the last five years.
Whether you operate multiple store locations across a broad geographic region or a single store close by, you can’t be a constant physical presence to check for an open back door, mop up a spill on the floor of a high-traffic area or ensure that cash security policies and single-drawer accountability procedures are being followed.
Envysion’s intelligent video solutions are enabling leading retailers such as 4G, Murdoch’s and AT&T, plus top casual dining brands like KFC, Qdoba and Chipotle to ensure that they are creating an environment that is a safe and secure one in which to shop and work.
Envysion's video-driven business intelligence solutions enable you to not only view hard-to-see or poorly lit locations, but to remotely monitor critical operational procedures such as back door access, drawer accountability, single-drawer cash handling and cash drops, returns, gift card transactions and more. When integrated with point-of-sale systems, Envysion video solutions enable you to rewind your “game film,” sync it to a unique transaction, and use that as a deterrent or as a powerful training tool to point out negative behavior and reinforce behavior that meets or exceeds expectations.
Bottom line? Safety is the best, and cheapest, insurance policy you can have.
