If you run your own transport business, you may not have even considered the installation of a video surveillance system. CCTV can, however, not only help you protect your company’s assets but also help you grow it. By securing your valuable goods and stock, you’ll be able to concentrate on the important business of growing your company as well as helping it flow smoothly. Only high-quality CCTV systems will enable you to monitor your premises. Keeping both your vehicles and staff safe should form the basis of your business plan, so if you’ve been thinking of ways to scale your business, it may be time you gave serious consideration to CCTV systems.
Improves employee productivity
Whilst we’d all like to think that employees get on with their tasks, the reality is that they simply work harder when they know someone is watching. Monitoring your staff may not be the prime reason for installing CCTV, but if you’re worried that a particular department, service or operator isn’t perhaps as productive as it should be, CCTV can help. With video security systems in place, departments can also communicate better with each other, leading to better collaboration and increased productivity.
Aside from your staff, your vehicles are your primary asset. They are absolutely vital to the success of your business, but as with many transport companies, they can also pose a security risk if they’re not fully protected. A CCTV system will help you keep a keen eye on your fleet, including how they’re being used as well as for insurance purposes, and enable you to ensure any maintenance is being carried out properly.
Theft and damage reduction
Surveillance cameras are an excellent way to both prevent and reduce theft and vandalism. The mere presence of a security camera is sometimes enough for a prospective thief or vandal to rethink their plan of action. With a surveillance system in place, incidents of criminal damage can be reduced dramatically, saving your business money and keeping your fleet and personnel secure.
Employees want to feel safe and secure at work. If your employees work with the public, man valuable fleet or operate on a lone-worker basis, they could become a target, meaning employees are potentially being placed in harm’s way every day. CCTV lets your employees know that their safety is a primary concern of yours. If an employee knows you’re taking their safety seriously, they’re far more likely to be happy and productive, and the more productive employees you have, the greater chance your business has of growing.
