Retail Industry surveys have shown a 2% annual shrinkage based on a combination of employee theft, shoplifting, vendor fraud and administrative errors. The Wall Street Journal has posted an article claiming businesses are taking measures to control shrinkages by the use of surveillance cameras to help battle the shrinkage problem.
Open Eye has been a leader in the development of cameras and recording devices. The camera image if used with ThinkSmart’s point-of-sale application, Text Overlay, can show the actual transaction the cashier, server or bartender rings. This can show if mistakes or theft is happening right on your camera at your store or from a home office. Open Eye can also search these transactions by using the search parameter, this search can show you a voided transaction or a coupon taken on the camera. Alerts can be programmed to send you, via email, every time a void, or any word of your choice happens with an attached picture of the person who was responsible for the recorded entry.
All of the recorded video is securely marked with a hologram showing the authenticity of the images. These images bearing this Open Eye seal are admissible in court.
Camera images can be viewed from an iPhone, Droid or Windows Mobile Phone. These feature allows you to keep an eye on the store from practically anywhere.
