Return On Investment (ROI)
|Return On Investment (ROI) for a digital surveillance system can be determined by the amount of money saved through prevention of costly circumstances or problems. Such problems can include employee theft or fraud, robbery, and property damage.On a restaurant-specific basis, according to studies, employee theft- whether inadvertent or purposeful- averages $218 per employee each year. Worse yet, the typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenue to fraud. Based on the statistics, fraud costs the average business $4,500 per employee per year.
Based on employee theft and fraud alone, the ROI for a digital surveillance system can be virtually immediate. Given the research statistics, if an employee costs an average of $218 per year due to theft, and a drive-thru employs five people, their total would average $1,090 per year. In the case of fraud, if a restaurant earns $300,000 in a year, the 5% average annual loss would amount to $15,000 per year.
Compare the figures from theft and fraud to those of the top-of-the-line security systems: Big Dog Surveillance Systems. The systems range from $650 for 250 GB of storage and 4 cameras, up to $3995 for 1 TB of storage and 16 cameras. The ROI for these systems can be achieved within the first year, or at the latest, by the second year of ownership.
Other scenarios should be taken into account such as accurate insurance reporting for claims such as a fire or equipment malfunction. The value of surveillance can be extensive.
