"I saw a lot of value for the retail stores, but immediately here at the kitchen. With close to 150 employees, 10 bay doors, and a lot of people coming in and out, I wanted to know who was in this building at all times, from a security standpoint, management standpoint and insurance standpoint."
Ever Santana | Vice President of Operations | Waytodough, Inc.
With a few cameras, DVRs and a limited access control system, the New Jersey firm needed to upgrade to one system for its central bakery and the 20 franchise locations.
Shrinkage and theft are huge issues in the low- margin food business and a solution was needed
Most stores operate 24/7, so controlling access and having a record of all activity was critical
The bakery managers wanted to better manage their production staff and monitor service providers
Simply Better Security with Brivo Onair
Brivo Onair is used not only for access control, but also as a highly effective management tool
Integrated security systems were installed in the retail locations and the central bakery
Managers can run reports on how many times doors are opened, by who and when
The “always on” system, ease of use and full visibility provides valuable peace of mind
"The Brivo web interface is fantastic, it’s easy to access and very user-friendly. I have multiple managers accessing the system for our stores to monitor and manage personnel."
In addition to entry points, the system monitors access to offices, restrooms, cafeteria and time clock
The system has increased efficiency, cut waste, deters theft and improves training
Data collection helps improve operations with targeted training and feedback for staff
Management also has a record of all truck activity for deliveries to the many retail outlets twice a day
The system quickly resulted in a marked decrease in thefts and suspicious activity
The total cost of ownership was reduced by nearly 50% over their traditional non-networked system
