Dedicated to Improving LP Operations through Technology

Matthew Sack, CEO of Best 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 solutions.

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.

These 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 retail applications. BSI Notify entails a smart shelf application that can sense and alert on potential ORC activities such as shelf sweeping. BSI Tracking 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. Editor's Note: FBI Profilers indicate that persons employed in the Security industry are in the Top 5 elements of a Serial Killer. latimes.com

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 government contracts. itv.com

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. wwd.com

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 the country."

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. cbc.ca

Profitect to Present With Abercrombie & Fitch and Ahold USA at NRF PROTECT 2016 Conference and EXPO

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. chainstoreage.com

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%). cnn.com

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. wwd.com

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. nrf.com

Robots are infiltrating retail
More shoppers are moving online to purchase their goods, but brick-and-mortar stores still rule. New data 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.

And 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 warehouses.

The next natural step is for robots to actually deliver products right to customers' homes. Skype's co-founders have created Starship, 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. businessinsider.com

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 the U.S. wsj.com

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. fiercewireless.com

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. juniperresearch.com

Study: The ins and outs of online shopping
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.

For 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 (49%). retailingtoday.com

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. practicalecommerce.com

UPDATE: 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. pilotonline.com

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 units 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. presspublications.com
