Benefits of a Commercial Security System…Recently I met with the owner of a mid-size business. He is considering a commercial security system for his business. He asked me to identify the benefits of having a commercial security system. Let me share with you the answers I gave to his question.
Almost every night, we hear about workplace violence events. It is hard to predict these events. As an employer you have responsibilities to provide a safe and secure environment for your employees. Employees are your most critical asset. Employees who feel safe are more productive. Commercial security measures such as video cameras, safe parking lots at night or panic buttons tell your employees that you care about their safety.
Business Theft Losses
Studies of commercial business show that the average business may lose 1-2% from lost business inventory. Those losses cut into your profits. If you have a retail business you already know about the losses that come from shoplifting. By having cameras installed or putting in place a secure inventory control system with authorization controls you can reduce the financial losses to your business.
What if you came to work tomorrow and you discovered that your business had been vandalized or robbed? Would you have the necessary information to help the police recover your stolen property? Security cameras turned on at night could provide valuable information to the police.
Many insurance companies will offer discounts to businesses that install a commercial security system. These systems can serve as an early warning system should there be a fire or water damage. Minutes can make the difference between damage and a total loss. Money saved from insurance discounts can pay for your new commercial security system.
These are four benefits every business could enjoy by having a commercial security system. If you are considering a commercial security system, give me a call. We can help you achieve these benefits for your business.
