- Reduction of vandalism and theft in your business
A video surveillance system by in large will aide in reducing unwanted access to your business and properties. It is one of the single most visible deterrents a business owner should employ in order to help safeguard an enterprise.
In real numbers, statistics illustrate that in the city of Baltimore, Maryland a cohesive network of security surveillance cameras and safety equipment, helped reduce crime by almost 17 percent. In the county of East Orange, New Jersey, which is renowned for its high crime rate, experienced a drop in crime of almost fifty percent between the years 2003 to 2006. These statistics come from the respective police departments as part of an ongoing analysis of the effectiveness of video surveillance.
With the employment of on-site analysis as well as the implementation of state-of-the-art video surveillance equipment MHD Communications will help safeguard your business from the possibility of theft and or vandalism.
- Evidentiary value of stored surveillance video
It is difficult to present evidence in a case that can be considered indisputable. There is always the give and take of witnesses and the inevitable convincing persuasion tactics of a lawyer that can muddy the waters of any court testimony.
What is not up for challenge is a clear and concise video depicting an action, whether criminal or not, that cannot be questioned or disputed.
As an example, DTI Data, a well-known and respected data recovery company, was employed to restore data from a video surveillance system that an employee of a high-end jewelry manufacturer, had tried to destroy. DTI Data succeeded in recovering the video and with the aide of other evidentiary data, discovered a thief that had been stealing jewelry from the business over an extended period of time. This employee was a well-respected and long-term worker that had gotten into financial difficulties and was selling the stolen jewelry on a well-known auction site. Through the forensic recovery and analysis of the video data evidence, the owner had the tools to deal with the employee on a business as well as criminal level.
MHD Communications can not only set up a video surveillance system that will keep your business under close scrutiny 24-hours a day 7 days a week but will also keep the recorded data in a location that cannot be tampered with such as a cloud storage system.
- Resolve in-house disputes in a timely manner
We live in a time where personal sensibilities and the safety of employees has become a principal guiding point for the day to day activities of any business. One need only peruse the internet to understand the significance of an escalated disagreement between employees and the mayhem that can ensue in a blink of an eye. In 2013 for business and professional workers there were 4,460 injuries and 65 deaths, in the retail arena a staggering 2,680 injuries and 127 deaths and finally for education and health services work places there were 22,590 injuries and 35 deaths that are all directly related to workplace violence.
Trying to resolve these types of disputes, especially those of harassment, can be extremely delicate and at times needs the wisdom of Solomon himself to resolve an issue. In addition, many of the injuries and deaths may have been prevented if the employer had been aware of an escalating crisis. People don’t just get out of bed one morning and decide to start a fight with an employee, there is usually an animosity that develops over time that finally one day boils over to the point of someone getting injured, or worse.
MHD Communications can install a surveillance system that allows the employer to keep a watchful eye on the comings and goings of all employees. Hopefully, it will not be necessary to employ recorded video to settle a dispute, but it is nice to know that you have an indisputable record of employee interaction to resolve a ‘difference of opinion’.
- Improve personnel productivity
Years ago, large department stores would employ an individual that would supervise the workers to ensure that customer service was at its highest level, up selling was employed, and professionalism was conveyed to the highest degree. This was usually a senior employee who was respected and known as a ‘floorwalker’. This individual was seen as a direct representation of the business ownership and was treated as such.
The floorwalker has not been utilized in several years, however the nature of the employee remains the same. There are times when a worker may spend their time engaged in activities that are not part of their job description. Surfing the internet, reading in the bathroom, sleeping in a janitorial closet, hanging around the kitchen area, arriving late, and leaving early. These are just a few of the innovative ways an employee will spend your money instead of helping you build your business.
