My newsagency software company, Tower Systems, has emailed its customers reminding them of a free theft check service. It’s this service that has helped uncover hundreds of thousands of dollars in employee theft in the last six months. The processes followed result in evidence that is police, court and insurance company ready.
Newsagents tend to not want to check on employee theft because they are worried about what they will find. Ignorance is bliss I guess. It’s not when theft is discovered – often after the cost to the business is almost unbearable.
Here’s the reminder sent to newsagents this week:
We consider ourselves experts at helping our customers eliminate employee theft within their businesses. Employee theft can cripple a business and is often perpetrated by those you least suspect. We have found numerous instances of employee theft costing the businesses involved tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
With our assistance, businesses have been able to prevent further theft and, in certain cases, recover some of the money lost. We will gather evidence from your data and provide you with facts you can use.
Theft checks are available at no cost to supported users. They provide piece of mind.
We understand the importance of discretion in matters like these and will do our utmost to protect you data and deliver information to the relevant parties.
All newsagents should speak with their software company about what they can do to help uncover employee theft and act on this.
