Is it fair to say that we live in in challenging times with unpredictable economic forecasts. What does this mean well you have heard the stories about the bartender serving all there friends with free drinks during the night. Lets talk about groceries I wonder how often staff have taken advantage of this scenario when there friends or family go shopping. For retail businesses, internal theft is the biggest source of loss. Catching an employee sneaking out with a flat screen TV is much rarer than a cashier manipulating the system to give away merchandise to their friends or family.
The statistics show that internal business theft is on the rise yes there are people who believe that society owes them a living this is the mentality that has grown in recent times due to Economic hardship.
Temptation is a huge incentive especially when nobody is looking
Point of Sale or “POS” integration is simply combining video and information from a cash register. It is a great retail security resource for a manager or owner to monitor sales. With a camera, one can see that a customer came to the register and made a purchase and money was exchanged. When the POS is added to the video now the whole story can be told. What was rung up? Was it rung up for the correct price? How much cash was collected? Was every product scanned?
