Small Business Security | Top Ways Your Security Can Help Improve Business Decisions

SSP - Business March 2020

Security technologies today are more accessible and affordable than ever before and offer robust capabilities beyond pure security. The rapid advancement in the security industry has equipped and empowered progressive businesses with limitless data opportunities that can be used to enhance the customer experience, improve operations, and boost business. 

Identify Trends in Operations

No matter the type or size of business, one of the most important things to do in improving operations is identity trends. Video surveillance technologies can help you identify what is working well so it can be duplicated, and what is not so it may be changed. 

Identify Exceptions

In loss prevention, identifying exceptions is an important factor in developing a protection program. Many losses occur due to price overrides, purchase voids, discounts or returns at any register.

Leverage Customer Traffic Tools

People counting features allow you to monitor customer traffic so that you can adjust staffing levels as well as estimate customer conversion rates. 

Improving Sales

Another area that owners can leverage to improve business decisions is analytics. Analytics can help create heat maps showcasing the areas of businesses visited most often, thus helping in advanced sales opportunities.

Reinforce Accountability

One of the most important components of any security system is the intrusion detection and alarm system. While it most certainly deters crimes such as theft, it is also very helpful in building reports to reinforce employee accountability. Data derived from alarm activation and deactivation can tell you if your business opens and closes on time. 

Security technologies help you ensure that your business is performing to the most optimal level possible, and that loss prevention techniques and strategies have been fully honed by managing the crucial data streams available to you. By placing multiple data streams into the greater context of processes and profitability, businesses are poised to more proactively handle attempted incidents of theft, fraud and loss.
