Verified, substantiated information is always at the crux of all the strategic business decisions that you make. Whereas not all information requires detective and investigative services, information that involves putting your faith into people, information on which a lot is at stake, information that, if wrong or misrepresented, can cost you tens of thousands of dollars, needs to be professionally obtained, verified and substantiated. This is where you can use services of a private investigator.
Why your business needs a private investigator
Your business can use a private investigator in many ways and consequently, save you a ton of money. Let us quickly explore a few well-known options.
- Employee theft and related problems:
Just as there are highly professional, sincere and hard-working people, there are also fraudulent individuals waiting for you to commit a mistake of hiring them. Once you hire them, they will try to fudge your financial records in order to steal money, they will sell your confidential data for money, they will share your critical information with your competitors and if you try to nail them down, they might also get your business involved in a multi-million-dollar lawsuit for no fault of yours. Many businesses have been shut down or declared bankrupt simply because they hired the wrong people.There can also be undercover employees who are actually working for another organization and are just there to sabotage your business plans or transfer sensitive data to the actual organization they are working for. Just imagine what a loss you can incur if your competitor launches a product or a service just before you are about to launch it.
Is all this headache worth it? All it takes is partnering with an investigative agency that conducts background checks. For instance, Alliance Investigative Services can conduct pre-employment checks on the person you are about to hire so that you are fully aware of his or her credentials, professional and personal history and legal whereabouts.
- Employee injury claims:
Businesses all over the USA lose billions of dollars due to false injury claims. Laws favorable to employees have been created for everybody’s benefit, but these laws are misused by fraudulent employees just to make a quick buck. They fake injuries, obtain spurious medical certificates from doctors and make your business pay bills and insurance amounts without a genuine reason.A private detective agency can get their medical records examined and carry out the requisite surveillance in order to doublecheck their “injury”. This simple and timely exercise can save your business tens of thousands of dollars.
You can avoid such incidents by regularly working with a professional detective agency and even use their services as a deterrence.
- Corporate surveillance:
Planning to strike up a business partnership with another company? Although starting a new venture on the grounds of doubts and suspicions may not sound appropriate, it does you no harm to know about the antecedents of the company you are negotiating with. What have they been up to? What has been their financial and business track record? Have they been mired by legal problems? Have they declared bankruptcy, and if yes, how many times? Is the business they represent genuine? Have they ever defaulted on their credit? Have they had issues of discrimination and exploitation within their organization?There are many issues that can blow up into a major financial problem for you in the future if you don’t know about them before doing business with them.
- Warehouse/truck driver surveillance:
Do you want to make sure your goods remain unharmed in your warehouse? Are you sure your truck drivers are not fleecing you or creating spurious bills on their way? Warehousing and trucking is a business that runs on faith and trust and since lots of distance is involved you can be at a great disadvantage if somebody decides to swindle you.A professional surveillance and investigation agency can nip all these problems in the bud by installing surveillance teams and equipment at crucial locations and transit points. The mere fact that you have employed a surveillance company to keep track of your warehouses and truck drivers acts as a big deterrence for prospective malefactors.
Why surveillance is important
Unfortunately we have this tendency to sweep many important decisions under the carpet just because right now there is no need to feel alarmed. When the real tragedy strikes, we are caught ill-prepared, and it’s only then we realize the overwhelming importance of partnering with an investigative and surveillance company.
When hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake, it makes perfect sense to keep track of your business partners, employees and offices and warehouses where your expensive goods are stored. For instance, you can avoid most of the misadventures by simply establishing a system – with the help of a professional surveillance team – where everybody knows that you’re not in the dark. You know what’s happening at your workplace. You know that the antecedents of all your employees are substantiated and genuine.
So don’t wait for a financial catastrophe to happen. Contact Alliance Investigative Services to know how we can help you save millions of dollars with our surveillance and investigative services.
