Analytics solutions that deliver a big financial impact

Are you accidentally cutting into your sales & underwriting fraud?

Not knowing where losses are occurring, and realizing you have no way of finding out, is frustrating for finance, loss prevention, and operations alike. While some losses may be expected, employee fraud, consumer return fraud, and shrink need to be controlled.

Even legitimate returns need to be monitored so that the store does not fall victim to abusive renting/wardrobing. Until the right solutions are in place, however, attempts to prevent loss can backfire and cause the chain to lose so many sales that they outweigh the loss they were intended to prevent. Stopgap procedures can make processes so convoluted that associates skip steps, reopening the door to fraud.

Technology to reduce shrink and increase net sales

With your customer-facing solutions aligned to meet their needs, consumers feel welcome in your store whether they are purchasing or making a return. The processes are fast, and the day’s transaction stimulates future shopping visits.

Behind the scenes analytics help to prevent consumer and employee fraud as well as to help with scorecarding vendors and SKUs. Shrink is kept under control through effective monitoring and diligent investigations.
