Employee theft is one of the largest problems facing salons today. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are lost every year to this form of theft. The problem is that there is nothing you can do to guarantee a 100% elimination of employee theft. However, there are some things you can do to reduce, prevent, or identify it. The key is accurate record keeping and preventative measures. TanTrack® tanning salon software employs several features to allow this.
MAXIMUM DISCOUNT PROTECTION
This feature will allow you to specify the maximum discount percentage that an employee can discount an item. This allows your salon to still bargain with customers as needed but to prevent an employee for selling something too low or for nothing.
Within TanTrack®, you can specify exactly which screens each employee can gain access. And within those screens, many features are individually protected as well. This allows for a very custom security settings within your tanning salon. Each employee also has their own unique ID code and password. All transactions are logged for each employee such as sending a customer to tan and making sales.
The largest problem is the ability for employees to tan people without charging them. In addition to TanTrack®’s ability to require IDs, and valid tanning packages, we also interface to all major timers. A couple of those timers such as T-Max® and CCS Intellitan® have the ability to lock out the panel either by a key or a password. This means that your employees must send all customers to tan by going through TanTrack®. And for you, that means one of the largest employee theft problems has been effectively reduced. Timers are not required to use TanTrack but they do add an extra level of security.
By putting to use these security features, you can realize a serious reduction in your employee theft problems. You may not even be aware that you have problems. Implement a software package and watch your revenue. Adding software also carries an implied sense of “I’m being watched.” This alone can also deter employees from attempting or continuing any theft activities.
