Partners with Protection One to Provide White Paper on Security.
The current economic crisis has greatly affected day-to-day operations of many foodservice companies around the nation. A sudden decrease in revenue has caused many restaurants to reevaluate cost saving measures in order to prevent losses. Many have looked to alarm monitoring technologies as a solution to help save costs and prevent losses.
Frost & Sullivan recently partnered with Protection One, Inc. (Nasdaq: PONE), one of the nation's largest providers of monitored security services, to look at the physical security needs in the foodservice industry. The study focused on ways the industry can look to technology and physical security solutions to help prevent theft, ensure employee and customer safety, prevent food spoilage, avoid environmental dangers, and ensure privacy with network-based systems.

"Alarm monitoring companies provide hardware and software that help restaurants improve safety and security for employees and customers," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Dilip Sarangan. "The key criteria to take into consideration are the ability to install hardware that delivers undiminished performance over its lifecycle, value-added services to improve safety and security, and the unmatched customer service."
Lynn Kresse, national account manager for Protection One, added, "Time and again, we have seen the very real, value-added benefits an integrated, professionally installed and monitored security system can provide restaurant owners who face everyday threats to their businesses. Systems that incorporate the latest technologies and that alert managers to point-of-sale inaccuracies; freezer temperature fluctuations; the presence of fire; an employee in danger; or a sensitive area being accessed provide peace of mind as well as tangible results to the bottom line."
The restaurant industry is one of the largest employers in the United States, especially for short-term employment, which only increases employee theft. However, restaurants still face numerous vulnerabilities, such as the exposure of back doors, fire and environmental hazards, accidents and injuries, as well as exposed parking lots, that all require implementation of security systems.
The foodservice industry remains critical to the growth of the economy. The current economic conditions have only amplified the importance of security technology to reduce losses and increase profitability. It is essential to use technology such as alarm monitoring services in order to reduce the impact of threats, increase employee safety and security and at the same time make the workplace much more attractive.
