A multi-billion dollar American retailer with about 1,000 stores seeks cutting edge theft and loss prevention tools and technologies for in-store use.
The primary area of focus is near the front of the store, near the cash registers. The solution might be able to interface with in store staff or simply identify a person and capture pictures or data. All ideas are open for discussion.
Because we are seeking never seen technologies, the solution does not need to be immediately scaleable. But it does need and deliver a decent ROI -- say, 300%.
A tool that protects the actual merchandise (similar to LM Tags, EAS Tags, Alpha Keepers) in an open sell environment for the guest to touch and select
Technology that signals to the stores team that a shoplifting activity is taking place in the store (similar to Indyme or PVM)
Most protect merchandise the size of a vitamin bottle, perfume bottle, mascara container, cell phone, package of batteries, lipstick, pack of gum, tooth brush package
