What’s your restaurant loss prevention strategy?

Margins are tight for quick service restaurants. Between food losses, high staff turnover and employee theft, it’s getting tougher to turn a profit. Consider these facts:

  • QSRs lose up to 7% of revenue due to employee theft
  • Employee theft accounts for 75% of restaurant industry losses
  • 75% of employees have admitted to stealing from the workplace at least once

The right restaurant loss prevention solution can help you cut these losses and keep more of your profits.

The March Networks Alert Communication Tool (ACT) delivers real-time notifications—based on incoming alarms and alerts—via Command Enterprise Software, to third-party devices like instant message, email and smart lighting systems. These notifications are from alarms that have been configured on your March Networks recorder, including AI-based alarms from the ME6 Series IP Cameras, which are equipped with video intelligence. The stopped vehicle analytic alerts you in real-time about customers arriving to your restaurant for curbside pickup, and provides a visual record of all curbside deliveries for future review.
