There's no question that the retail environment has changed. While the grocery segment has fared better than others, many companies have been challenged with implementing new safety measures while continuing to respond to existing challenges.
Theft continues to be a significant risk, particularly during these difficult economic times. While shrink can occur in many ways, one source originates in items left on the bottom of the basket (or BoB) during checkout. The rise of self checkout has increased BoB loss dramatically, with these lanes experiencing shrink at a multiple of traditional lanes. In either case, the margin impact is significant ... but fortunately, this is one source of shrink that can be controlled and mitigated!
While we face more "desk time" than usual, we welcome you to join us on a webinar to learn more about how TRG and Datalogic can help you maximize profit recovery with cutting-edge loss prevention systems.
