Death of the Salesmen: Technology's Threat to Retail Jobs 
The decline of big-box retail and department stores could also mark the fall of retail as a job engine. Throughout the 20th century, American stores were the locus of low-skilled employment. The total retail workforce tripled between 1940 and 2000, and for much of the century, the sector employed more people than construction and health care combined. Even today, the two most common occupations in America, by a wide margin, are retail salesperson and cashier. Last year, 7.6 million people held those jobs—more than the total number of workers in Florida. But retail employment is following a familiar path, one already beaten by farmers and factory workers. Retail now employs fewer people than it did in 1999. And those people work significantly fewer hours, too. The Web has changed how shoppers find what they’re looking for. Twenty years ago, the shoppers went to the stores. Today, the stores go to the shoppers. From the floor salespeople replaced by informative Web sites to the cashiers nudged aside by automatic checkout machines, the daily tasks once performed by store employees are either being taken over by machines or outsourced to customers.

Schnucks wants federal court to handle POS $7.5M+++ data breach class action lawsuit  The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the named plaintiff and others similarly affected accused Schnucks of willful and wanton neglect, a charge for which punitive damages are available under Illinois law. It also sought actual damages from Schnucks for the numerous hours and effort that individuals had to allegedly put into cancelling affected cards, activating replacements and re-establishing automatic withdrawal authorizations. In its motion for removal from state court, Schnucks claimed that the "time and effort" claims for Illinois alone easily exceed the $5 million threshold for federal consideration.

Cyber thieves are honing in on retail on the hunt for credit card numbers 
As their attacks get more sophisticated and businesses start adopting better security protocols in the financial industry, the food and beverage and retail industries continue to look more appetizing to cyber villains looking to take advantage of their weaker security protection and the growing number of shoppers using their mobile devices as a point of sale. Retail is by far cyber criminals’ biggest target, making up 45% of total breaches in 2012, which is a 15% year-over-year increase from 2011, according to Trustwave. One of the reasons is because of the sheer number of merchants that accept electronic payments, as well as the “it won’t happen to me” mentality that has caused companies in the services and retail industries to shrug off cyber threats.

NFC awareness up but many see no benefits to the technology 
As more businesses and brands, and handset manufacturers, invest in contactless payment technologies, consumer awareness is starting to grow.

However, while awareness is on the increase, 30% of consumers don't think there are any benefits to the technology. eDigitalResearch's report comes at a time when issues surrounding contactless payments have come to the fore. Stories of digital pickpockets taking advantage of NFC capabilities and charging errors have surfaced. (Source bizreport.com)

The National Food Service Security Council (NFSSC), the leading trade association for loss prevention and security professionals in the QSR and casual dining restaurant industry, has finalized its series of Breakout Sessions that will be featured at its 34th Annual Conference, August 4-7, in Las Vegas.

The Breakout Sessions complement the larger Keynote and General Sessions that make-up the entire education program of the Conference. Breakout Sessions are designed to feature more specific topics targeted at all levels and responsibilities of the LP and Security professional. “The Breakouts offer registrants an opportunity to learn and share from real-life practices on areas of interest that affect the LP professional on a daily basis,” says Ted Polensky, Boddie Noell Enterprises and Chairman of the NFSSC Planning Committee. “This allows participants to take part in topics that are most important to their specific needs and responsibilities.” Breakout Sessions are presented by restaurant practitioners with a great deal of working experience in the noted field. The Break Sessions include:

Depositions: Are You an Asset or Liability to Your Company?; presented by Anne Sullivan, CKE Restaurants
Food Loss and Cost Controls; presented by Levell Hedgspeth, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store
Fraud & Scam Protection; presented by Michael Loox, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
Smart Safes Q&A; co-presented by Chris Manning, The Wendy’s Company and Joe Verber, Taco Bell

“LP and Security practitioners face different challenges and have different responsibilities. The Breakouts can help them fine-tune their skills in areas that perhaps don’t get as much attention as others,” said James Brussow, CPP, Dave & Buster’s Inc., and 2013 NFSSC President. “It’s a great opportunity to learn from those who have been there and done it successfully.”

NFSSC will host its 34th Annual Conference, August 4-7, 2013, at the M Resort Spa and Casino, in Las Vegas. The event features executive keynotes, educational sessions and workshops, roundtables, exhibits, scheduled practitioner/vendor meetings, and a host of entertaining networking functions.

Anything dollar general sells you name it she took it,” says Musselman. This U-Haul is filled with $11,000 worth of merchandise, everything from shampoo to diapers, police say this is the second organized retail theft ring they’ve busted this year. “We have a lot of retail thefts with the giant and the dollar general but that dollar amount is unprecedented,” says Musselman.

ORC suspect arrested for hitting Wal-Mart and other retailers in multiple states  An Iowa man wanted in two states for retail theft is now charged in Pennsylvania after what one investigator called an "elaborate scheme." Jeffrey Womochil, 52, is facing three felony charges by state police in Indiana after his arrest Friday. Investigators said Womochil remains in the Indiana County Jail and could possibly be extradited in the coming weeks to Iowa and Nebraska, where he is wanted on felony charges as well. Police said Womochil purchased a bag of potato chips from the Indiana Walmart on Friday evening. They said he left the store, walked to his van, walked back in the store and filled his cart with expensive cookware and other items. Then, they said he walked out without paying for the items, while holding the receipt from the purchase of the chips. Once inside his van, police said he used equipment to scan the legitimate receipt, altered the figures to make it look like he purchased the cookware and other items, then printed the fake receipt. From there, police believed he planned to return the items to the Blairsville Wal-Mart. (Source wtae.com)

Third-Party Study Compares Checkpoint Systems Electronic Article Surveillance Labels With Others


Study Found That Checkpoint Anti-theft Labels Are Superior in
Critical Areas of Performance

THOROFARE, NJ – May, 28, 2013 – Checkpoint Systems (NYSE: CKP), a leading global supplier of shrink management, merchandise visibility and apparel labeling solutions for the retail industry, announced the results of a third-party study conducted by TUV Rheinland, a global provider of product testing and certification. The study found that Checkpoint genuine electronic article surveillance (EAS) labels perform much better than other tested labels in all key areas. The study evaluated EAS labels from multiple manufacturers, measuring and comparing labels’ application, detection, deactivation and reactivation.

According to the Centre for Retail Research, global shrink increased 6.6 percent to more than $119 billion in the last Global Retail Theft Barometer, a figure that represents 1.45 percent of global retail sales. For the past 20 years, EAS systems and labels have been the most common method to protect store merchandise against shoplifting. During the past 10 years, there has been a proliferation of manufacturers offering presumably low-cost options without clear guidelines between cost and performance.

The study titled “Performance Testing of Labels” helps retailers weigh the benefits and costs of specific solutions. It looked at four distinct areas of performance and provided objective data revealing specific advantages between labels from different manufacturers.

Areas of Evaluation

Automatic Application of Live Anti-theft Labels

TUV Rheinland found that Checkpoint EAS labels remain live more than 99 percent of the time after automatic application on a product at the point of manufacture. Labels from other manufacturers deactivate in the process and are rendered useless almost 30 percent of the time.

Anti-theft Labels Reactivation for Retailers

TUV Rheinland researchers also reported that labels from other manufacturers can reactivate up to 23 percent of the time after being deactivated at point of sale, resulting in tag pollution, increased false alarms, decreased alarm compliance, employee frustration and potential consumer embarrassment. In contrast, performing the same tests, TUV Rheinland found that Checkpoint labels remain deactivated after legitimate point of sales transactions. They have almost zero percent reactivation when products are motionless (static) in a customer’s bag, or in motion, (dynamic) when sewn into a customer’s garment.

Anti-theft Labels Deactivation

According to TUV Rheinland, most other label manufacturers have deactivation heights at point of sale as low as 0.5 inches to 5 inches (1,3cm to 12,7cm), which results in more non-deactivated items, customer embarrassment and lack of responsiveness to true theft alarms in store. In contrast, TUV Rheinland noted that Checkpoint labels can be deactivated by cashiers scanning products up to 17 inches above the deactivator pad.

Anti-theft Labels Detection

Overall, TUV Rheinland found that Checkpoint labels are detected more than 95 percent of the time by EAS alarm systems. Compared to other label offerings, Checkpoint labels deliver among the best detection rates irrespective of position: laying flat, facing front or on their side.

Based on the research findings, the study suggests that labels that frequently deactivate during application prove ultimately to be more costly. These labels are offered at low-cost and treated as a commodity where price is the only differentiation. Indeed, these “dead” tags do not protect store merchandise, potentially resulting in further profit loss from stolen merchandise. Retailers and their buyers can trust Checkpoint labels to protect their merchandise with much less risk of false alarms thanks to the almost zero percent of reactivation, the deactivation simplicity by cashiers at the point of sale and the high detection rate with the antennas at the point of exit.

According to Farrokh Abadi, president & chief operating officer Shrink Management Solutions Checkpoint Systems, “For retailers seeking to achieve best practices, this study can help them make appropriate purchasing decisions. TUV Rheinland’s independent study clearly shows that investing in Checkpoint solutions is beneficial in the long-run, because our superior quality labels perform significantly better when compared with other manufacturers’ labels. In other words, retailers truly get what they pay for.”

The difference between success and failure is in the planning and the execution. Taking something from a thought or idea to a reality can be a long and painful process lined with failures and detractors. But a great idea is only as good as the plan you have to bring it to life and the execution everyone delivers to give it a life. Because without the two the great idea never existed. As one "C" level executive once told me - He never saw a bad great idea as it was always the failed plan to roll it out and the poor execution that killed it.

Just a thought,
