Industry leaders collaborate to combine video surveillance software with business intelligence, and process automation.

Envysion, the authority in managed video surveillance and loss prevention, today announced an integration partnership with restaurant business intelligence leader OneDataSource (ODS) to automate loss prevention processes and eliminate time-consuming manual data entry that plagues restaurant owners and operators.


The partnership combines Envysion’s Managed Video Solution, a market-leading video surveillance, analytics, and auditing platform with ODS’s business intelligence and process automation solution to give restaurant leaders a data-driven and efficient automation system for their businesses.

The announcement comes at a time of significant technological change in the restaurant and retail industry as demand grows for digital systems that streamline processes, especially by businesses operating at a large scale. Specifically, process automation is an essential component for franchise growth, enabling owners and operators to focus their resources on reducing loss due to theft and unauthorized transactions, while also improving the in-store experience and maximizing revenues.

With the Envysion/OneDataSource integration, restaurant leaders can automatically collect and load data from their systems–video security, human resources, marketing, banks, and point-of-sale–into a secure, high-capacity data warehouse for in-depth analysis and role-based reporting. The integration makes it easier than ever to quickly identify potential loss opportunities at every level of an organization.

“Partnering with ODS is a significant step to improve how business owners use data collection and video surveillance as management tools,” says Envysion CEO, Calvin Quan. “Combining ODS’s exception reporting and automated predictive analytics capabilities with Envysion’s video evidence gives restaurant owners unprecedented insight into every aspect of their business with detail and accuracy they’ve not previously enjoyed. And it requires less time, energy, and effort on their part because it’s completely automated.”

Loss prevention is a universal challenge for QSR franchisees. OneDataSource has always worked to support our clients’ efforts to educate their teams, recognize compliance and theft issues, and minimize loss. By partnering with Envysion to integrate video with our exception reports and transaction data, customers will have more powerful, higher-value tools and greater insights than ever before,” says Bruce Belvin, President of OneDataSource.
