Baby monitor for employees or how to set up a transparent business

Business requires control, and this is a prerequisite. It is necessary to constantly monitor and evaluate sales consultants, managers, warehouse workers, merchandisers, cashiers. Hired employees who know their work is being watched are more responsible. And today, it is possible to organize the “presence effect” of the chief remotely through video surveillance. So why are so many businesses “unattended” and not introducing video surveillance for their employees?

Why do you need video surveillance of employees?

The most common problems encountered in the sales business are summarized as follows:

  1. Theft of goods and other values ​​by employees.
  2. Theft of funds from the cash register.
  3. The use of fraudulent enrichment schemes at the expense of the company.
  4. The inefficiency of staff work.
  5. Poor layout.
  6. Unfair work of warehouse employees.
  7. Violation of the production process.

Why do Russian entrepreneurs do without video surveillance?

There are three reasons why Russian entrepreneurs abandon to video surveillance of their employees:

  1. Specificity of the Russian market.

Traditionally, the IT market of the Russian Federation lags behind the world by 20-30 years. Only in the last 2-3 years, innovative, lightweight, and flexible surveillance systems that can be used in business and at home have begun to appear on the market.

The market is filled with offers from companies focused on a closed-loop security system, including an analog version of video control. The users of these products are security services, not small business owners.

  1. The belief that video surveillance is expensive.

The general user has incomplete or outdated knowledge about video surveillance, thinking that it is available only to very wealthy individuals and large enterprises. This misconception is fueled by active advertising of the dying analog video surveillance. Many are afraid of the ongoing maintenance costs.

  1. Difficulties to choose: designer, seller of equipment and/or software, installer.

The fears are reasonable.
