Supervise Employees- Outside of curtailing criminal activity, CCTV can provide a useful tool in the supervision and management of your employees. In addition to preventing theft that would fall under criminal activity, this can be a useful way to ensure the quality of work and dedication employees show when they think you aren’t looking. Observing interaction with customers or how they care for the property can give you a useful view in what’s happening with your business when you aren’t there.
Assist With Business Decisions- It can be easy to put blinders on when observing your business situation. If you’re looking at a busy day, you can get caught up in the hectic pace, which makes it difficult to be objective in making objective decisions. With CCTV however you can see an entire day’s business in a few minutes, allowing you to verify things like foot traffic patterns or busy times in the day.
