Many studies indicate that:
the majority of manufacturingand trading companies are faced with the problem of inventory shortages;
in 60 %the shortages are caused by negligent employees,
in 75 %the employees at least once alienate products owned by the company,
the number of such incidents rises every year by 15 %,
on average the companies become aware they they are missing something only after 18 months,
75 %of criminal acts of employees remain unnoticed,
the opportunity for theft is a more important trigger as the need for money,
less than 10 % of the employees are responsible for over 95 % of all losses arising from internal theft,
almost every company s faced with a certain degree of employee theft,
approximately 1/3 of all corporate bankruptcies are a consequence of internal employee theft.
Each employer will be faced with theft in the future or the theft is already happening to him.
Our 15-year experiences in investigation of these abuses have shown that:
the inventory shortage can be only seemingly within normal limits;
the actual condition often shows itself only after several years of organizing inventories;
the disclosure of irregularities often occurs when the directors, regional managers or heads of sectors are exchanged;
the thefts of employees are a consequence of an insufficient security system – »opportunity makes a thief«;
the police is often unresponsive in such incidents due to too much work;
the responsible persons often don’t know who they can trust in their ranks withthis kind of issues.

Does you company have a lot of field work to do? Do you deal with cargo transportation? Theft of fuel is still a very serious problem.
Do you wonder how to reduce labor costs and other costs? Prices of fuel represent more than 40 % of costs of transportation services. In the grip of fast growing fuel prices and other “input” materials, it’s impossible to catch thefts of fuel from trucks and from heavy machinery, but that’s not a rare phenomenon. Thefts can take place for several years, and the caused damage can amount to tens of thousands of euros.
