Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. Selects Envysion as Exclusive Video Surveillance Provider

Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. has selected Envysion as its exclusive video surveillance provider and is deploying Envysion Insight in an initial set of locations. Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp., which operates 120 salad buffet-style restaurants under the Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes brands, will use Envysion's point-of-sale (POS) integrated video surveillance to scale the capabilities of its loss-prevention department and leverage business insights to improve operational performance.

"The Envysion Insight solution allows me to view video and integrated exception reporting of our restaurants, so I can increase my loss prevention effectiveness and efficiency through remote site auditing and investigating potential fraud or theft," said Jamie Knight, director of asset protection for Garden Fresh. "Within three months, we realized a material improvement in gross profit. We're averaging an increase of about $920 in profit at each Envysion site every month. Assuming we see those results as we roll out the Envysion solution across our locations, the impact could add up to millions of dollars per year."

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. The managed video as a service (MVaaS) solution puts video surveillance into the hands of the entire organization, fostering a companywide responsibility for loss prevention. Through Insight Marketplace, a revolutionary new approach to managed video, customers can extend the impact of Envysion Insight with a variety of loss-prevention services delivered by expert, third-party partners.

"We are excited to provide Garden Fresh with a solution that will immediately enable them to improve profitability and expand critical loss prevention efforts. Our video POS integration system will enable Garden Fresh to better identify, track, examine and curtail negative activity and drive savings to the bottom line," said Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion.
