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 .
