You can only be at one place at one time and unfortunately, the technology to clone yourself is not yet available. So how do you really know what's going on at your place of business when you're not there? How do you make sure your assets, including merchandise, equipment, employees or even customers, are protected? The use a video surveillance system has been a growing trend for small to medium-sized businesses as improved technology and competitive pricing have made it easier and more attractive for even the smallest of operations to implement.
According to research done by Global Retail Theft Barometer, the global retail industry lost more than $128 billion in 2013 ($42 billion in the U.S. alone) due to shoplifting, employee or supplier fraud and administrative errors. This is a daunting number, so it's important that you make sure your business is protected. Even the visible presence of a camera can defer possible theft or even employee misbehavior, and could even lower your insurance premiums.
There are many uses for video surveillance systems and many different features and options offered. Whether you have small retail business or an office with 200 people, there is a system that is optimized for your business needs.
