People are turning to social media to help catch theives, but it is so important to be proactive about preventing it in the first place. Theft occurs not only with drive-off's, but sadly, also with saavy cashiers, dishonest managers, and even with vendor contract pricing! I had a customer tell me that she discovered one of her small local vendors charged her an excess of $400 over 6 months! She found it only because she started with Datamakers and began tracking her vendor costs week-to-week. I have another customer that told me he discovered his manager was ordering excess items that he/she personally drank/smoked/used and was simply taking them home. He found this out when he started tracking his inventory and noticed a huge gross profit gap in these departments. I had another customer tell me that they caught their cashier ringing up items onto their customers transactions by doing a quick scan when the customer wasn't looking! Ugh!! The stories we could all tell!
