When it comes to protecting your home and the people you love Delco Alarm has the reputation for sparing no expense to ensure that its customers have the best systems available at affordable prices. However, when it comes to business, patrons do not posses that same primal human instinct, which typically elicits a desire for care and safety.

Although with Businesses, there are no precious cargo such as significant others and children to protect,there is major monetary value within any existing business. Businesses benefit immensely from protecting their assets. Specific areas protected by Delco Alarm’s services and the implementation of an effective security system is cost and productivity.
Suffering the financial loss of business property or revenue due to burglary or theft, internally or externally, creates a significant setback for even the most established companies. If the loss is known the lost revenue is either written-off which creates an imbalance in a company’s financial records or where it is written-off, insurance and other financial institutions begin to look at you as a financial risk and economic credibility is lost. The loss of credibility in the business world may cause the price of business insurance to rise, interest rates of business credit to increase and in some cases the loss of accounts that fear your loss may affect them in the long run.
A company can suffer significant loss in the area of productivity as well. After a burglary or other theft, business administration begins to assert time and energy into rectifying the problem.This time and effort takes away from productivity and energy into the areas of business that produces actual income. If the loss is internal it could be effecting the business for years until the theft is figured out, by then the damage is already done. Whether you are a single business owner or a departmentalized company, the setbacks caused by the recovery process will ultimately affect if a company remains productive.
The End Game
Overall, an effective security system will aid in the prevention of burglary and thefts eliminating the resulting negative consequences. As a business owner, you have to take into account theories surrounding both inside and outside jobs. Thefts are not solely outside occurrences. There are also in-house issues that need monitoring and overall supervision. Employees who pilfer supplies, products or services and/or cheat work hours add to a company’s loss of funds and productivity. Employees who are not productive during the work day, who turn around and work after hours to complete the day’s tasks apply for overtime and is, in theory, stealing (time)from the company. Employees who complete personal tasks also aid in the loss of productivity a company suffers, which ultimately costs it money.
