Video surveillance helps companies

Video-Sorveglianza-2
In the companies, each year, are discovered about 6 million thieves, without mention the cases who are without guilties. In times of crisis, as in recent years, also increased thefts. From some researches carried out in England, 78% of the losses of stock (or inventory shortages) comes from dishonesty employees.
The most sought-after goods are obviously the ones more expensive, but also those in common use that can be more easily sold.
The safety systems, in the retail field, are increased of 65% over the last 12 months.
It’s fully integrated systems, which in addition to the cameras, are equipped with 24-24h monitoring also through smatphone, tablets and PCs, access control through biometric locks, access control systems with burglar alarms and tag details.

Video surveillance is, therefore, necessary not only against external theft, but also against theft by unfaithful employees. As we have seen other times, there isn’t a “modus operandi” that uniquely distinguishes the thieves, so you can monitor a company internally only with a good integrated control system.
There are those who merely use business tools for personal purposes, but also those who steal, who makes real sabotage or vandalism, who sell data, informations and trade secrets to competitors or aiding and abetting acts of unfair competition.
In this regard, it’s also essential a physical analysis of the “context”, ie, the organization of spaces until set policies and control procedures that govern the life of the company and its employees. This can be done with the help of specialized companies in the field.

To these prevention and deterrence systems, it also adds the usefulness of the surveillance studies about customers and purchases. In fact, the same recognition technologies allow you to track real identikit of customers and categorize them by type. So, video surveillance, isn’t only an effective method to protect themselves from theft and damages, but it’s also an excellent tool for evaluating and screening the market.

The company must have always very clear ideas about how it wants to manage its own security, and the technology must serve its needs of protection. So the company has to rely on professionals in the security and surveillance field, avoiding waste of time and money with mediocre systems that not only are inefficient, but also make real damages to the company. In conclusion, the safety is a choice and at the same time a liability at the base of corporate policies .

According to a survey conducted by ACFE – Association of Certified Fraud Examiners – every year companies lose over 5% of their profits due to theft and other crimes realized by employees. The potential damage was estimated at global level, in three billion dollars. Frauds by employees affect all companies, small, medium and large.

They have causes, methods and impact very different, but have a common denominator: on the one hand, the lack of knowledge of the risks and internal vulnerabilities and, at the other hand, the inability to prevent and manage employees infidelity. It’s a complex problem and an ever-changing phenomenon. The studies, carried out are still limited, but the scenario that they show is quite clear: companies bear the economic risks, direct or indirect, caused by their employees, at all levels of the hierarchy. But, are often the same companies to provide opportunities for the realization of abuses and violations.

On average, companies employ about 18 months to intercept fraud and more long is  the time of detection, greater is the damage and the impact on the business environment. Currently, the most popular way to become aware of the existence of domestic abuse is the “whisper”. Another employee acts as a “spy” about an unlawful. In 30% of cases, the managers can be peaceful carrying out constant monitoring activities through appropriate tools. In fact, almost always, the cause of these events is to be found in the total absence of anti-fraud policies and, when these are present, they’re inadequate. Only those who rely on professional in security and surveillance field are able to actually prevent fraud of any kind.

Regardless of the numbers, what it’s important emphasized is the resignation that companies seem to have against the risk of fraud; in other words, companies try to hide their inability to limit employee dishonesty behind a kind of tacit tolerance. This threshold moves ever forward, year after year, and beyond this threshold there isn’t almost never an efficiently and effectively plan against fraud. Building and, above all, implement an anti fraud strategy within the company, isn’t difficult and, however, one cannot do without.

“In this way I saved my company after corporate infidelity”

Business problems and supportAn Endoacustica Europe‘s customer, leader company in security and surveillance field, sent an email in which he exposed his problem of corporate infidelity and explained how he arrived at a solution.
“I’m the administrator of a big company operating in the production of electronic components, and about 9 months ago I was the victim of a case of infidelity company.

I contacted Endoacustica Europe because many of my customers had suspended the request of supply for some time, without give convincing reasons and responding in evasive manner to any requests of explainations. With the same I had an exclusive supply contract for components, so I began to suspect that there was a hypothetical company, in the same field, which had made contact with the customers of my company. To be honest, I didn’t suspect of my employees.

I then decided to see what was happening through micro cameras recommended by the Endoacustica Europe’s team in order to unmask the presumed crime and document the investigation with tangible evidence. The hidden cameras have fulfilled my expectations.
I placed the tools in different places, working and recreational, and I monitored the incoming and outgoing phone calls. Then, I waited. Through some internal telephone calls, I understood that two employees of my company had started their own business.

I’ve narrowed the inquiry field and I easily picked up numerous evidence about the customers who have strayed from my company. They have been (incorrectly) stolen from the rival company by the two disloyal employees.
With the evidence gathered I was able to start criminal proceedings against my former employees, and I’m going to have a substantial financial compensation. Thank you very much for your help, I’d be on the brink of bankruptcy if I hadn’t acted in time and with the right tools!”.

Stories of this type are more and more frequent especially in this time of economic crisis in which it’s difficult to attract customers. Act in time with professional tools is often the key to recovery a company. Endoacustica Europe offers a wide range of technologic products at competitive prices that allow video surveillance in a discreet manner of environments and people.
