I have been called to many locations that swear they have a theft issue, only to find out that the product was actually missing due to miss management.
When an accurate inventory took place, they discovered that the shoplifters were taking a completely different item that they were completely unaware of.
The truth is, without having an actual estimate done, and cross referenced against your current inventory accuracy and merchandise costs, you can never really understand how much you might need an inventory security system. You will also have a better understanding about where the system will do the most benefit for you. A miss placed security system will be less beneficial than one protecting the right inventory assortments.
The first step is to determine what your losses actually are. If you were not in the habit of taking an inventory, now would be a good time to start.
Many small businesses that do not take an inventory on a regular (semi annual or annual) basis are often surprised at just how off their numbers are in their heads versus what they actually do physically have on hand.
The important piece of doing an inventory is in knowing your accuracy. If you have an accurate inventory, you can effectively tell what is missing. You will be able to resolve the theft issues faster, and with greater certainty.
