Orlando, FL - November 19, 2014 - It’s late on a Friday night. The
lot is dimly lit and area patrol is nowhere to be seen. Alone, a store
casually walks to their vehicle after closing the store. Upon arriving to
vehicle, the store manager fumbles through their pockets for car keys. This
the scene for one of many perfect opportunities for a crime to occur. How
will it take before someone finds the individual and the police are called
a violent crime takes place? The answer to this will vary depending on the
location and precautionary measures in place. Shockingly, 7% of all violent
crimes occur in commercial parking lots. That amounts to nearly 70,000
per year according to the fbi.gov website.
Another worry for management is internal theft. 18% of all internal theft is
related to collusion, and employee theft accounts for nearly half of a
overall loss. How is management keeping track of deposits being made at the
of the day? Did the employee really get held-up at the bank, or did they
pocket the revenue?
Nutech National scrutinized these questions, researched the issues, teamed
with their security experts and came up with a ground-breaking technological
solution for employee protection and internal financial loss prevention and
introduced Employee Watch.
The new application is just another service being offered through Nutech
6.0, Nutech National’s reporting database. Employee Watch, which can be
installed on any smart phone device, allows the Central Station immediate
notification of when the employee leaves the store and arrives to their

store sets a customized "timer" that automatically counts down
once the app is
activated. The employee will activate the app as they leave the store, and
de-activate once they arrive safely to his/her vehicle. If the timer runs
and the employee doesn’t de-activate, local area police will be dispatched.
application uses GPS tracking technology to track the employee’s exact path,
in the case of a crime their location will be known. A pulsing function is
included with the app. Employees will carry the silently pulsing phone on
way to their cars to know Employee Watch is activated and they need to
de-activate upon vehicle arrival. If a crime does occur, authorities will
in the fastest time possible; there is no need for someone to find the
hours after a crime is committed before police are involved. A panic siren
button and police dispatch button are also included.
The other half of keeping employees safe in the parking lot is through
Watch’s inclusive use of Axis camera systems. The app is completely
with these cameras and they can also be used to monitor employees in the
lot, recording any criminal activity until the app is de-activated.
Managers can also track employees making deposits. Employee Watch is
when employees leave the store and GPS will track the employee to the bank
make the deposit and the timeframe in which they were gone. This gives
management the most control and insight when it comes to deposit
Employee Watch offers an extra layer of security monitoring capabilities for
associates everywhere, at every store, and every location. Call Nutech
