|The MobilecamViewer mobile surveillance application has reduced theft and increased staff production
The vice president of Tampa, Florida meat packer and distributor Master Purveyors has seen a sharp increase in staff production — and reduction in theft — since adding the MobileCamViewer mobile surveillance application from mobiDEOS to his business security system.
“We have experienced a clear return on investment through less product theft since adding MobileCamViewer,” said Shawn McCranie, vice president, Master Purveyors. “We have definitely seen more money added to our bottom line.”
Master Purveyors has been in business since 1966. The family-owned operation centers on an in-house processing facility that cuts, trims and packs high-quality meats to order, servicing customers across central Florida.
The company integrated MobileCamViewer into its existing six-camera security system — also featuring a Dedicated Micros DVR — that allowed him to extend his surveillance reach beyond the desktop. McCranie discovered MobileCamViewer while seeking a user-friendly application that would allow him to monitor operations while away from the business — and keep staff on task.
“The eye over the shoulder has made our staff stay on track,” said McCranie. “We have the ability to watch what they are doing 24/7 and call into the public address system if we need to. The staff knows that this is not a dummy system, which keeps them very focused. And the fact that I don’t have to drive 20 miles in response to every problem is a big benefit.”
McCranie monitors operations from his Android, with high-quality video feeds from Sony cameras overlooking his warehouse, freezers, coolers, loading dock and outside perimeter. He notes that the comprehensive solution with mobile surveillance exceeds necessary federal government requirements for meat production businesses.
“The security system is a necessity for meat processing facilities as part of the federal government’s homeland security program,” said McCranie. “The ability to remotely monitor our system around the clock improves on those requirements. We can react much quicker now if there is a security issue related to temperature monitoring or a break-in.”
