Surveillance System & Security Camera Integration
True integration of surveillance with your point of sale is a good insurance policy both for protecting your store from theft and employee control. The two points combined, will provide a solution that brings you closer to locking down your inventory, management practices and bring peace of mind and true security.
There are many scenarios result in a situation where non-integrated surveillance is inadequate. We've put together a few below to give you some perspective
Theft Control - Employee Involvement:
Situation: Employee’s friends come in, they bring to the counter yogurt. The Employee presses Bottled Water on the POS.
Issue: There’s no way to tell directly from the Surveillance System what happened, you would have to see the POS screen directly. And if you were only to remote view the POS, or see the sales for the day, you wouldn’t have determined this.
Customer brings up a bottle of alcohol. Employee is positioned to hide the act of scanning, and just scans of a gum. This act could dramatically foul up your inventory, as well as be a theft.
Software like Cafe Cartel’s Point of Sale with integrated security system will alert you to this.
Integration logs employee usage as well. An employee that clocks in, is displayed on the screen of the actual user logging in. This would be matched with the person on the camera. Without surveillance one employee could clock in or out for another, and it would be difficult or impossible to track this.
Employees who log in for administration purposes. This ensures that an employee is logging in with their own code. This means your staff would more likely be caught if they were using others’ codes for overriding of voids, returns etc. This can be strengthened with the use of Key Cards, but not all locations want to use Key Cards
How to Integrate:
Integration is a straight forward process. It requires a surveillance system that does integrate and a Point of Sale system that allows for integration.
Cafe Cartel’s point of sale, keeps track of the transactions as well as the other access points of the software.
