Employee theft easier in stand-alone EFTPOS situation

Mark Fletcher
December 5th, 2013 · No Comments

I’ve seen evidence this week of employee fraud against a retailer where the EFTPOS terminal is not connected to the POS software used by the business. The employee recorded the sale in one was on the software and differently through the EFTPOS terminal. Poor back office management of the business meant that the behaviour went un-checked for some time.

I encourage newsagents using EFTPOS to only use it in an integrated way. You cut keystrokes, streamline sales processing and reduce the opportunity for employee fraud.
