Loss Prevention

Understanding when there is possible theft or suspicious activity can save you money. It’s impossible to monitor every transaction yourself. Our audit and theft control systems are hands down second to none and help you put a stop to theft, which depletes profits and harms the customer experience.


NCR Restaurant Guard is a loss prevention and employee performance monitoring tool that provides real-time monitoring and alerting for suspicious events in the restaurant, detailed reporting and research tools to assist with investigations and a highly configurable real-time view of key performance metrics for employees and stores.


The software leverages the power of artificial intelligence and the POS transactional data to provide your executives and managers with the insights needed to identify and mitigate losses proactively, while strengthening internal controls. Tracking this type of activity can also help you rank your highest and lowest performing servers so you can motivate your staff to deliver quality service.
