Fast Food Operator Chooses Envysion Managed Video As A Service Technology

Envysion Inc. recently announced that OTAC Inc. has selected Envysion as its exclusive video provider and is deploying the company's Envysion Insight solution to all existing locations. OTAC, an operator of 21 franchised Hardee's locations throughout Maryland and Delaware, will use Envysion's point of sale (POS) integrated managed video to support loss prevention, improve operations and drive bottom line profit improvements.

Leveraging Envysion's comprehensive MVaaS platform, OTAC operators are able to track a variety of operational data points that have an impact on profit.

For instance using Envysion's motion mask feature, OTAC was able to identify several employees violating cash handling and safety and security procedures. Using Envysion's robust exception reporting capabilities, OTAC operators can also easily pinpoint potentially fraudulent transactions such as voids and discounts. Initial use has identified several incidents of suspicious activity.

Within a month of use, OTAC operators identified a pattern of employee discounts given at the drive-thru, which is a policy violation.

"We evaluated several video providers and even considered purchasing a system outright. None of them provided the ROI or financial impact to our bottom line like Envysion's solution does," said Fred Mattes, director of physical facilities for OTAC. "With Envysion Insight we have already identified and curtailed several incidents of fraudulent transactions and procedure violations that were costing us money."

Envysion Insight goes beyond traditional security and loss prevention applications by integrating managed video surveillance with POS systems. In addition to the customary benefits of video surveillance -- increased security and reduced loss from vandalism, theft and unfounded liability claims -- Envysion Insight automatically tracks potentially fraudulent transactions such as voids, returns, discounts and coupons.

"We are excited to partner with OTAC as their video surveillance provider," said Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion. "OTAC is consistently recognized as an outstanding franchisee among the Hardee's community. Envysion Insight will give them an unfiltered view into their business and actionable insights that will help them maintain this distinction."
