ParTech, Inc. (“PAR”), a global provider of point of sale (POS) and back-office software along with integrated technical solutions to the restaurant industry, announced the addition of CCTV and video management software provider Odyssey Technologies, Inc., developer of Remote Eyes® video management and loss prevention software, to its ever-growing Brink POS® integration partner ecosystem.
Remote Eyes is a unique video management software that enables restaurant owners to see all transactions keyed into the POS, either live or in playback mode. The software combines high-resolution cameras, Brink POS transaction data, and network video recorder (NVR) data to provide owners with unprecedented access to their sales data in real time, including voids, cancelled orders, and other information.
Operators can review their captured video to identify different types of theft, improve employee efficiency, discover and correct training issues, decrease drive-thru times, minimize potential liability issues, and improve overall customer experiences. According to data from the National Restaurant Association, employee theft can be attributed to about 75% of inventory shortages and can cost quick service restaurants up to 7% of sales. The FBI has also stated that employee theft is the fasting growing crime in the United States.
For restaurants already operating on slim profit margins, having the right tools in place to catch theft before it happens is critical to success.
“With the active assistance of the Brink POS development team, we have taken our loss prevention solution to the next level in terms of completeness, ease of use, and function,” John Webster, CEO of Odyssey Technologies, said. “Small restaurant owners can deploy our solution rapidly and cost-effectively by using our Cloud service offering. Multi-location restaurant operators can use our Enterprise offering to integrate data from all store locations and automate alerts and reporting."
“We’re incredibly excited to have Remote Eyes join our integration partner ecosystem,” Stephen Lee, Director of Strategic Partnerships for PAR, said. “At a time when most restaurants are struggling to stay afloat because of the pandemic, preventing employee theft is more important now than ever. Remote Eyes reduces overall day-to-day risk and liability for operators while promoting a better overall guest experience.”
