Shortage Control Card And It's Function
The shortage control card is a tool of the snack box trade it is the subject I want to talk with you about today. We will talk mainly about shortage cards-their function and how it should be used. Why not using it is a recipe for trouble and how nice life can be by using it.
Going to work in the honor box business without shortage control cards is like a carpenter going to work without a hammer, a doctor going to see a patient without a stethoscope, or a taxi cab driver going to work without a drivers license.
Anyone of these three trades, and as far as that goes any trade known to man, has tools they need to perform their job.
Veterans of the business
Any veteran honor box operator will not leave the warehouse in the morning without his/her shortage control cards. It is the one tool in the operator’s arsenal that will make them more money than any other tool they possess.
You want your customers to pay for everything they take from the box, but reality says there are some people that need to be reminded from time to time. My thought is that most people we deal with are good honest hard working people that have no intentions of harming anyone.
Good Intentions And The Impulse
Most of your customers will pay each time they take an item from your box but you do have the individual that has good intentions but only has a $5.00 bill on him at that moment when the impulse hits. And being a snack box operator you already know our business is an impulse business.
Taking the philosophy that most people are just good honest people, we as honor box operators need to discipline ourselves to card our customers when that time comes.
We know that placing a reminder on the box is all it will take in most cases to turn a good account around when shortage gets a little higher than we want it to be. We also know that in most cases the guilty party knows who they are and the friendly reminder is all it is going to take to get him/her back on track.
