Customer Blog: Grocery Outlet Owners Talk About Why a CameraScan Video Surveillance System Needs to Be on Every Grocery Store Owner’s List
We’ve had our CameraScan system since 2002. Over the years we have upgraded and now have 24 cameras watching the entire floor….cashiers, stock room, delivery area and parking lot. My previous expertise in loss prevention in the grocery industry taught me that a good surveillance is mandatory to reduce and control shrinkage, employee theft, and shoplifting.
But while controlling inventory shrink is vital, it is not the only benefit of installing a CameraScan system. We use it for vendor theft issues, to help increase employee productivity, and liability issues…it’s just like having a lawyer on your side!
There’s no question that there is more effort and support on the floor as we can monitor from our office and our home. It definitely makes a big difference. The remote viewing is key for us. The peace of mind you get from knowing you can view from home or anywhere in the world is so positive for us and the store, it’s huge! We love the new I-phone app, now we’re really connected.
CameraScan is an essential part of our business and mandatory for a meaningful loss prevention program. If you add in labor, productivity, deterring theft, and peace of mind, it can literally pay for itself IN MONTHS.
We have enjoyed working with the experienced, professional staff at CameraScan for over 9 years and would recommend them to anyone. This is an investment that will pay for itself over and over again.
