Dedicated to Improving LP
Operations through Technology
Matthew Sack, CEO of
Security Industries (BSI) has always been fascinated with technology and how
it could be used to improve business operations and solve problems. When Macy's
recognized his technical savvy and recruited him to join the company nearly 30
years ago, he felt that his IT and Systems background could be an asset to
Retail Loss Prevention. Sack was excited to see how new systems and technology
could be used to define and combat shortage.
During his 12 year tenure with Macy's, he held a number of positions including
Vice President of Administration, Director of Administration, Manager of Systems
and Manager of Fraud. His primary focus was on developing and refining various
technology applications and programs for the Loss Prevention, Risk Management
and IT areas.
Upon leaving Macy's, Sack joined RuMe Corporation as its President and oversaw
the growth of that company. At the time, RuME was best known for providing
refurbished electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems and accessories. He
also created a leading interactive training company providing patented
e-learning to the safety, inventory and loss prevention industry.
As CEO of BSI and President/CEO of BSA, LLC, a rollup of companies from
Blackford Capital and Convergent Capital, Sack still relies on those lessons
learned in the early days of his career with Macy's. He strongly believes that
technology and data analytics can help retailers define programs that can
deliver more productive results for their companies. He holds customer service
and relationships in the retail community to be one of a company's most valuable
possessions and that by working together everyone comes out a winner.
Another cornerstone of the BSI operations is its
certified, pre-owned EAS
systems and accessories. Sack has built part of his company on helping retailers
realize that their LP assets retain their value for many years and showing them
ways to achieve an even greater ROI through reconditioned and refurbished
Under Sack's direction, BSI is committed to providing retailers with options for
their loss prevention programs. In addition to offering certified, pre-owned EAS
systems and accessories, the company also offers
Private Label New EAS systems
in both RF and AM frequencies, custom engineered IP Video solutions with
analytics and a host of specialized services.
specialized services include an express exchange or repair programs where
retailers can send in detachers or deactivators to be repaired or replaced often
times with a one day turn around. It offers a Depot program that will remove EAS
systems and accessories from closed locations, refurbish them to original
manufacturers' specifications and warehouse/depot the inventory until it is
needed in new locations. BSI also will buy legacy EAS systems and components or
accept trade-ins on new solutions.
Finally, keeping to his mantra of solving shrink problems through the use of
technology, Sack and his team recently introduced their new BSI Connect family
of services targeted toward curtailing ORC and other crimes against retailers.
BSI Cloud Connect is a new hosted video solution specifically designed for
BSI Notify entails a smart shelf application that can sense
and alert on potential ORC activities such as shelf sweeping.
utilizes GPS based anti-theft tags to track and report on the location of
expensive, high-end merchandise. And rounding out the series is
BSI EAS Manager,
a remote diagnostics and reporting tool.
By embracing technology, both new and old, BSI is dedicated to helping retailers
improve their bottom line.

G4S Security issues statement: Orlando Gunman
Omar Mateen had been employed with the firm since 2007
Security company G4S released a statement saying that Orlando, Fla.,
nightclub gunman Omar Mateen had worked for them for several years. "We are
shocked and saddened by the tragic event that occurred at the Orlando
nightclub," the statement said . "We can confirm that Omar Mateen had been
employed with G4S since September 10, 2007. We are cooperating fully with
all law enforcement authorities, including the FBI, as they conduct their
investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the friends,
families and people affected by this unspeakable tragedy."-Braden Goyette.

Orlando shooting wipes
$283 Million off value of G4S
The Orlando shooting
carried out by an employee of security firm G4S has wiped $283 million off
the value of the company. When trading opened in London on Monday, shares in
G4S lost 6.6 percent to hit their lowest level since 2009. Omar Mateen, 29,
an armed security officer for the firm had undergone company screening as
recently as 2013 with "no findings." The incident could cause yet more
damage to G4S after a long line of issues which included not providing
enough guards for the London Olympics. They were also involved in a prison
tagging fiasco and took a 65 million pound charge on loss-making British
Law Enforcement on High Alert in Some Locations After Orlando Shooting
Law enforcement is on high alert in some areas of the country as a result of the
mass shooting at a gay nightclub on Sunday morning. The shooting at Pulse
Orlando, located at 1912 South Orange Avenue, killed 50 people and wounded 53
others. Certain streets in the surrounding area were still in shut-down Sunday
afternoon as police continued their investigation.
Over at The Mall at Millenia, a Macy's sales associate said there was an
increased presence of local police at the mall's entrances. This person said
the mall is about five miles from where the shooting occurred.
In addition, according to the Orlando Sentinel, the area's tourist
attractions were on "high alert," with Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando
and SeaWorld putting up metal detectors at their gates.
Further afield, the New York Police Department said it is "closely monitoring"
the developments in Orlando, and said it is in contact with the local law
enforcement authorities in Florida, as well as with the Federal Bureau of
Investigation. The NYPD said it has placed its Patrol and Counter-terrorism
resources as well as other personnel, such as its emergency services unit, "on
alert pending further information." It also plans an increased police
presence at lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender institutions and other
venues, not just in Manhattan, but also in the outer boroughs.
In Los Angeles, the L.A. County Sheriff's deputies also were on high alert
at the L.A. Pride parade in West Hollywood Sunday, although no changes had been
made to its tactical planning since additional security had already been planned
for the event.
Walmart Canada to stop accepting Visa cards due to 'unacceptably high' fees
- 6 in 10 customers potentially impacted
Walmart says it intends to join the list of retailers in Canada that don't
accept Visa cards, citing high fees for transactions. It's a move one retail
analyst has said will cause "pain on all sides." All credit cards charge fees to
retailers, which generally are between one per cent and 2.5 per cent of the cost
what's being sold. The fees vary depending on the type of card the customer is
using - cash-back and premium cards generally have higher fees - and the type of
retailer they're shopping at. Walmart Canada quietly made the announcement on
Saturday that it would gradually stop accepting Visa cards at all of its
locations, citing "unacceptably high" fees. But a statement from Visa said the
credit card company offers "one of the lowest rates available to any merchant in
Consumer finance industry newsletter Nilson Report says that Visa made up 56
per cent of credit card transactions globally in 2015, and Walmart Stores
Inc., Walmart Canada's parent company, is widely reported to be the world's
largest retailer. "At the end of the day, when we strip everything out of the
debate, we're dealing with the potential that six out of ten customers will
come into a Walmart store and be disappointed that they can't use their credit
card," Stephens said.

Why is Target Dropping Curbside Pickup?
Target is ending its pilot of curbside pickup, in conjunction with the
third-party Curbside service, at more than 100 stores. Why would Target decide
to end its foray into a service that major chains including Walmart, CVS and
BJ's Wholesale Club are still actively exploring? The retailer isn't saying
much, but here are a few thoughts.
First, while curbside pickup is convenient for consumers, it is not as
beneficial to retailers. Successfully executing curbside pickup may require
dedicating areas of the parking lot and/or store entrance, which could disrupt
the flow of traffic to and from the store. It also requires store associates to
go outside and complete transactions. Each individual trip to a customer's
vehicle may only take a minute or two, but those minutes can add up if the
service is popular.
Political fears are depressing U.S. hiring and expansion plans
U.S. companies have drastically dialed back their expansion plans -- and many
are blaming rising political risk for their more guarded stance. The executives
anticipate capital spending growth of an anemic 1.1% over the next 12 months,
which is not even enough to keep pace with inflation. That's down by half from
March and represents a big deceleration from anticipated growth of 5.8% a year
ago. It's a sobering forecast that signals diminished confidence in Corporate
America. Robust corporate spending has been a critical missing link during the
recovery from the Great Recession.
Of course, the upcoming election is hardly the only reason why companies are
cutting spending. Other major concerns cited include economic uncertainty,
difficulty in attracting qualified employees and weak demand for their products.
CFOs were asked to list up to five political question marks causing their
companies to become more cautious. The most popular response was the upcoming
election, with 61% of respondents listing it as a concern. Other popular
political uncertainties include Washington gridlock or dysfunction (54%),
proposed regulations (45%), minimum wage (32%) and tax reform (28%).
Blighted Cities a Boon to Dollar Stores
In an analysis by WWD of retailers located within the EIG's most distressed
communities, the only retail brands operating within the city limits of these
communities are dollar and drug stores. The analysis found a virtual blight of
fashion apparel, department store and food retailers. For example, within the
city limits of the top five most distressed cities, WWD found a total of 43
Family Dollar and Dollar General stores and two Wal-Marts. And between all of
these cities, there was just one Sears and two Targets operating. This compares
to the most prosperous cities where the breadth of retail offerings was broader
with dollar stores, mass retailers, discounters and department stores all
operating within city limits.
The Love of the Deal
Consumers have adapted to off-price shopping
- And full-line retailers are responding
Ever more goods at ever-lower prices - combined with an empowered consumer who
demands what she wants, when she wants it, at the price she wants to pay for it
- has left many brands and retailers seeking new attention-grabbing "deals."
Macy's has its new Backstage concept. There's now Find @ Lord & Taylor and
Off/Aisle by Kohl's. Bloomingdale's has nearly 20 outlet stores, Nordstrom Rack
has its sights set on 300 locations by 2020 and Ross Stores, The TJX Companies
and Burlington Coat Factory are all projected to see 6 to 8 percent growth over
the next five years, according to Moody's.

Robots are infiltrating retail
More shoppers are moving online to purchase their goods, but brick-and-mortar
stores still rule. New
from the U.S. Department of Commerce reveals that 93% of all U.S.
retail sales come from these physical stores. As wages rise, retailers are
trying to increase their margins by replacing workers with robots. The novelty
factor of these robots could drive more foot traffic to these stores, especially
if the robots improve customer service.
And these robots have already started to infiltrate some retailers.
Lowe's has been developing OSHbot
, a customer service robot that speaks
multiple languages and helps shoppers find items, and testing this bot in its
Orchard Supply Hardware subsidiary.
Best Buy has begun using Chloe
, a robot that retrieves products that
customers request from a kiosk.
Target recently began a trial of Tally
, a robot that travels through aisles
and takes inventory.
Warehouses have also started to use robots connected to the Internet to
transport goods. Citi estimates that Amazon has 30,000 robots in use in 13
The next natural step is for robots to actually deliver products right to
customers' homes. Skype's co-founders have created
, a small robot that independently maneuvers through sidewalks at
approximately four miles per hour and can carry up to 20 pounds. The company has
tested Starship in 20 cities in the U.S. and Europe, according to Bloomberg.
Domino's has also been testing a similar robot called
DRU (Domino's Robotics Unit)
that can keep pizza hot and drinks cold while
it delivers them.
The widespread integration of robots into all parts of the retail experience is
just one piece of the IoT Revolution that is picking up speed. And when it does,
it will change how we live, work, travel, entertain, and more.
At Western Firms Like Adidas,
Rise of the Machines Is Fueled by Higher Asia Wages
The move to manufacture closer to customers is becoming more popular with
companies facing rising labor and transportation costs - coupled with worker
shortages - in much of the developing world. In addition, consumers want new
styles of shoes and unique electronics and they want them quickly - forcing
global brands to rethink how they make their goods.
The opening of Adidas AG 's first factory in Germany in more than 30 years is
one of the most visible examples of global brands bringing manufacturing home
because of rising labor costs in Asia. Nike Inc. said it has begun working with
contract manufacturer Flex on technology that will allow it to make shoes closer
to its major markets. Apple Inc. has expanded production of its Mac computers in
Scientists expose security flaws in drones
In an attempt to drive home the point to drone manufacturers that security
should not be an afterthought, researchers at Johns Hopkins University
demonstrated how they could use a laptop to easily take down a commercially
available drone. In one of the scenarios, they used a laptop to send thousands
of processing requests to the drone, overwhelming the processor and causing the
drone to crash. In so doing, they demonstrated how someone who wanted to hijack
a drone could easily do so - their tests were conducted on a popular drone sold
in retail stores.

Online Fraud Detection Spend
to Hit $9.2bn By 2020
As Fraudsters Target Mobile Transactions
A new study from Juniper Research has found that eCommerce merchants and
financial institutions will be investing heavily in online fraud detection
solutions over the next five years, with annual spending reaching $9.2 billion
by 2020, up by 30% on current levels.
According to the research,
fraudsters now perceive mobile payment channels to be particularly vulnerable
(and therefore attractive targets) as many organisations have yet to apply the
same levels of protection to mobile as they have to desktop transactions.
"Digital security companies regard the mitigation of mobile fraud as a key
revenue generator in the medium term," claimed report author Gareth Owen. He
argued that this was driving the development and implementation of advanced
biometric authentication technologies which the companies claim can make mobile
purchases as secure as any other web-based transactions.
In a survey of
fraud detection solutions, the study, 'Online Payment Fraud: Key Vertical
Strategies and Management 2016-2020' found that the leading solution vendors
were now capable of reducing fraud levels down to less than 0.1% of transaction
values in some key eCommerce verticals.
Study: The ins and outs of
According to the Walker Sands 2016
Future of Retail Study, based on a survey of more than 1,400 U.S. respondents,
most consumers shop online with some level of frequency. Forty percent shop
online once or more a month, 21% one- to two-times a week, and 7% three or more
times a week. This means that about two-thirds (68%) shop online at least
monthly, while only 4% shop online one- to three-times a year.
retailers who want to encourage more e-commerce activity, top enticements to
shop online include free shipping (88%), one-day shipping (69%), free
returns/exchanges (68%), easier online returns (58%) and same-day shipping
Amazon Payments: Pros, Cons
for Ecommerce Merchants
Merchants that offer "Pay
with Amazon" may lower cart abandonment rates among Amazon customers, in
addition to providing a layer of payment fraud protection, especially for
international orders. The main downsides to merchants are customer service
(i.e., customers have to interact with Amazon if there is a decline) and
administrative hoops to set up the service.
Hampton Roads, VA: Robbers stole $384K worth of smartphones from AT&T stores
A stick-up crew stole about $384,000 worth of smart phones and tablets
earlier this year from three AT&T stores in Hampton Roads, according to federal
investigators. And they think they also tried to rob a fourth. The scope of the
robbery scheme - which targeted iPhones, iPads, and Samsung Galaxy phones - was
made public last week in court documents. Police have charged three men in
Newport News General District Court: Breon Berry, 25; Brice Keeling, 23; and
Corey Holmes, 26. Kendrick Perry, 23, is charged in U.S. District Court in
Norfolk. Thursday in the federal case against Perry link the crew to two
robberies on Feb. 25 and April 7 in Virginia Beach, another on Feb. 9 in Newport
News and an attempted robbery on April 2 in Suffolk. The haul included about 442
smartphones and tablets.
Toledo, OH: Kroger and
Meijer team up with Toledo area Law Enforcement to bring down ORC scheme
The Ohio Investigative Unit issued numerous civil citations while at the
scene during the search warrant. Criminal charges against individuals who have
purchased stolen merchandise, which also included bottles of liquor, cartons of
cigarettes, and various packages of meat, will be filed in the next several
weeks, according to Det Ryan Spangler. "They'll be criminally charged with
receiving stolen property," he said, "a first degree misdemeanor." All charges
will be filed in Toledo Municipal Court later this month. Those buying the items
were aware they were stolen, he said, though undercover agents usually don't
come right out and say they are "hot." Product for the investigation was
supplied by the Organized Retail Crime
from Kroger and Meijer, according to Spangler. The support and cooperation from
the units is crucial in assisting law enforcement agencies in conducting these
styles of investigations, where stolen produce from their retail stores is being
sold to fencing operations at a significantly lower price. "Kroger and Meijer
are the ones that are taking the large losses on the product that's getting
shoplifted. So they find it extremely beneficial to assist law enforcement in
these styles of investigations to supply the product to take down the fencing
operation where all their stolen products are going to," he said. The liquor and
cartons of cigarettes came from the Ohio Department of Taxation.

store in West Lebanon without paying. Four days later, on June 1, they said the
same couple loaded a cart with $650 worth of items and again left without
paying. The couple allegedly fled the store in a Nissan Altima after a store

Social media can be a fantastic platform for every company and executive, but it
can also be a nightmare. Mixing personal with professional oftentimes sends the
wrong messages and can absolutely destroy the image a professional needs to
maintain in the public arena. Maintaining boundaries and separating the two can
oftentimes be difficult to accomplish as corporate America searches for every
piece of information they can find on executives and companies. And regardless
of what anyone says, your professional image should always take precedence over
your personal image in the social media world.
