Businesses have always had needs and concerns. While shrinkage or losses remain high on that list, the business community faces other tough challenges today that are, in many cases, beyond their immediate control.
Economic turbulence has created high unemployment and an increase in the business related crimes such as internal and external theft. The lack of consumer confidence has had an impact on the entire business community and slowed the amount of business for most. Business executives agree that pressures created by rising wholesale prices and operating costs make it tough to compete and remain profitable. Regardless of the cause, shrinking volume and lower profit margins have made eliminating loss, reducing costs and increasing profits more important than ever before.
Theft and inventory shrinkage are the most obvious causes of lost profit from a fixed base location. Traditionally these losses are eliminated using a properly designed video surveillance or access control system. Yet there are other areas of loss that businesses are addressing today such as productivity, customer service, vandalism, liability and safety as it relates to worker compensation claims. These typically have a larger direct impact on the bottom line profitability, as compared to the loss from an occasional break-in or theft.
Remote site management and management of locations such as construction sites provide other unique challenges. Through the use of the very latest technologies in IP based Video Surveillance and Mobile Video Surveillance, we have successfully addressed these challenges.
Rising fuel prices and higher operating cost has moved fleet management very high on every business’s priority list. USA’s Mobile Security Division has several solutions that allow businesses to control and manage the company vehicles which reduce cost and improve efficiency.

Perhaps the most important benefit, that USA provides, is the comprehensive needs and risks analysis that is performed to evaluate specific needs, unique to each business, before custom designing any program and offering it as a solution.
