You spend time and money investing in your business, but you could easily face a severe setback from theft or vandalism. Additionally, accidents at your business may require video evidence to back up claims of the injured. You cannot keep up operations for long without some type of business security system. By investing in a security option, you will be able to prevent problems and recover losses.
Theft can occur during or after business hours. Types of theft include burglary when someone breaks in, employee theft from workers stealing on their shifts, and robbery from criminals stealing from people. In a survey from a commercial insurer, 8.8% of small businesses reported thefts or burglaries. While often insured, the covered amount may not pay for the entire loss. Plus, business owners may feel vulnerable to future incidents or upset that the perpetrators didn’t get caught.
Having the theft on video from a high-tech business security system can give the police information to find the suspect and provide evidence of the crime when filing an insurance claim.
While no one wants an accident at their business, fraudulent incidents are even worse. Without verifiable video evidence to show that fraud occurred, your company’s insurance may have to pay out the expenses, which leaves you with higher premiums. Security cameras can spot the events leading up to an accident to help your insurance determine whether you were actually liable for the incident.
You may want to trust all your employees. However, according to the California Restaurant Association, 95% of businesses have workers steal from them. Keeping an eye on your employees and letting them know that they are constantly under security surveillance may help to prevent this type of costly theft.

During the pandemic of 2020, many offices chose to allow workers to do their jobs remotely. In fact, 45% of respondents to a survey about remote work in 2021 indicated they worked from home due to COVID-19. However, with offices opening back up, many employers will still allow some workers to remain at home, at least part of the time. To collaborate with those at the office and away, conference rooms with upgraded AV systems will become even more critical.
Everyone remembers trying to log into remote meetings with each person on their own computer. Spotty internet connections, slow systems, and distractions often made meetings difficult to follow. When trying to communicate remotely, the audio of individual computer speakers or headphones could determine how much of the meeting the participant heard. Poor audio quality could reduce the effectiveness of the meeting, making it a waste of time for the participant who could not hear clearly.
Therefore, when creating a hybrid office, those at the office should continue to meet in person in conference rooms to discuss matters face-to-face. This method eliminates technological issues.
However, to ensure that everyone can participate, remote workers should still be able to teleconference. Having quality AV systems in the conference rooms means better microphones and speakers to improve sound clarity. Better sound from microphones means people can be heard when they speak from the conference room. Plus, quality speakers ensure that everyone in the room can clearly hear those participating from their computers.
Video components are also crucial for ensuring that images used in meetings are visible and clearly seen by everyone. When talking to others virtually, clearer video quality can create a better connection with the person on the screen.
Remote working may be a permanent state for some employees while others return to their offices. Consequently, many places will require hybrid conferencing with workers in the same room meeting with those working remotely. To prevent time-wasting problems encountered during remote meetings when everyone used their own computers, improve your conference room AV systems now. Contact us at Experience Audio Video Inc. for our commercial services to create a better, more productive meeting space for your hybrid office.
Your business needs to keep up with changes at any time. Consumers can find out instantly about your daily specials, flash sales, seasonal deals, and more through digital signage. Whether you have a counter service restaurant or a retail store, you can benefit from the flexibility of digital signs.
Digital signs do much more than static signs can in your business. By showing changing images, they draw the attention of your customers. In fact, digital signage is so effective that it could boost sales by 30%. Using these signs can increase your sales if you take advantage of their distinctive features.
When installing digital signage in your business, don’t make it a digital version of static signs. Change the information to match your customer base. For instance, if you have a restaurant, showcase lunch specials during the lunch rush and dinner specials later in the day. You could also make your customers aware of new dishes with your signs, changing the images to create a slideshow or videos of new or featured foods.
In retail, you can use similar tactics to make customers more aware of sales or new arrivals. Make sure to customize your digital signage to your target audience, which will often change throughout the day and week.
Don’t limit the use of digital signs to only stores and restaurants. In fact, large offices can use digital signage to convey information to visitors and employees. For instance, visitors can use interactive maps on signs to find their destinations and workers can learn about news around the office.
At Experience Audio Video Inc., we help businesses to achieve their AV goals. Contact us to see samples of some of the digital signage we’ve installed for other companies. You can also find out how we can help you to upgrade to this form of innovative, sales-driving signage that will draw more attention.
