How to Lure Shoppers back to Retail Stores? The benefits of facial recognition technology  How can you use technology to attract and influence consumers to buy from a retail store? Well as Lynne Davidson, Managing Director of digital agency TH_NK states, in order to build the “intelligent store” and help create a great customer experience, then retailers need to first empower themselves with knowledge about their customers. A great way to achieve this is by integrating technology into existing practices: Facial Recognition Software - Facial recognition software analyzes footage of customers’ faces walking into the store and compares it with an existing database of past customer profiles. If the software identifies a match then the program sends an alert to the staff via handheld devices. The alert can include information regarding the customer’s preferences, past purchases, and even information regarding their dress size. With information such as this, store employees can efficiently cater to the customer’s specific needs and create a unique experience by simply being well informed. (Source yahoo.com)

Federal judge threatens credit cards companies - they may need to reimburse retailers potentially billions of dollars in debit-card transaction fees  U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, who tossed out a Federal Reserve rule governing debit-card fees two weeks ago, raised the ante at a hearing Wednesday, suggesting banks would not only collect lower debit fees going forward but may have to reimburse "funds that have been collected but shouldn't have been." Judge Leon leveled sharp criticism at the Fed, saying the central bank must move quickly to lower fees that banks can charge merchants when they swipe a customer's debit card. (Source wsj.com)

U.S. migration to global Europay, MasterCard, Visa card standard - dealt blow by court decision  On July 31, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled against the U.S. Federal Reserve in a lawsuit, shooting down the Fed's plan for a 1-cent per-transaction incentive for investments in fraud prevention. Now, experts debate whether the loss of that interchange incentive will delay EMV debit adoption in the U.S., especially at smaller banking institutions. John Buzzard, who heads up FICO's Card Alert Service, says the ruling has likely thrown off card issuers, since most had just begun to wrap their brains - and anti-fraud investments - around the 1-cent incentive.

IT Security Industry To Expand Tenfold
With each advance in the threat level represented by hackers, cyber criminals, and cyber spies there has been a new batch of vendors which come on the scene to counter threats that bypass previous technologies and spending has increased. The recent rapid growth of technology vendors to ward off cyber attacks is a blip compared to what is coming. The investment in creating Total Information Awareness over the last decade has stunned the industry. There will be a response to this threat against all communications. That response will be hundreds of new IT security vendors cropping up all over the world. Editors note: While most are talking about the governments involvement and the impact of business's outside of the retail world we've already seen the impact ourselves. Whether it's the skimmer at a POS register, an identity thief with counterfeit/stolen credit cards, an ORC thief selling the goods online, or the massive data breaches, and most recently hackers stealing bitcon wallets out of an android smartphone, the retail industry is being impacted in every aspect of the business and Loss Prevention executives need to understand that in tomorrow's world the IT security executive is going to play a major role in every retailer. And if we can evolve, learn, and grow and be able to offer those services or at least be able to manage the processes our value will increase exponentially and if we don't one day we may be reporting to them.

Medical Marijuana Poses Litigation Risk to Employers
In Colorado, a quadriplegic medical marijuana user, who sued Dish Network Corp. subsidiary Dish Network LLC for firing him after a positive drug test, lost in lower courts but has appealed to the state supreme court. The plaintiff, Mr. Evans said, was never “high” at work, never brought marijuana to work, and ranked “in the top 5%” of customer service employees. Dish Network didn’t respond to our requests for comment. Although employers have won the early rounds of lawsuits by medical-marijuana users fired after failing drug tests, the risk of litigation by such fired employees nonetheless looms larger, according to insurance, legal and business sources.

Forever 21 settles discrimination suit - Requiring a green card and not accepting DHS Employment Authorization Document  The retailer is settling allegations that it violated the antidiscrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act when it rejected an employee’s Employment Authorization Document, which is issued by the Department of Homeland Security, and instead required her to provide a “green card,” or permanent residence card, as part of its employment verification process. A Justice Department spokeswoman said the woman had accepted an offer from Forever 21 and had reported for work. She was later unable to work after the retailer refused her work-authorized document. An employer is prohibited from discriminating against employees or job applicants while verifying a person’s employment eligibility, by demanding specific documents or rejecting acceptable documents based on the status of citizenship or national origin.

Two more lawsuits filed against Pilot Flying J truck stops over alleged rebate fraud scheme  Two more trucking companies headquartered in New Jersey have filed a lawsuit against Pilot Flying J, alleging the truck stop chain engaged in “rebate fraud” by manually reducing the rebate amounts the companies were owed.

RESTAURANT LOSS PREVENTION & SECURITY ASSOCIATION WRAPS UP ANNUAL MEETING

Group Also Names 2014 Board of Directors

Olney, MD - The Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association (formerly NFSSC), recently completed its 34th Annual Conference, at the M Resort, August 4-7, in Las Vegas. The RLPSA annual meeting is the nation’s largest gathering of security, safety and loss prevention professionals in the casual dining and quick service restaurant chain industry.

Each year loss prevention professionals from around the country meet at the Conference to discuss issues facing security practitioners and develop strategies designed to protect company assets. More than 300 LP professionals participated in the meeting - a nearly 30% increase from the year prior. Additionally, more than 70 vendor companies presented products, services and technologies aimed at keeping restaurant workplaces and their employees and customers, more safe, secure and efficient.

The event was highlighted by a Keynote from Don Fox, CEO, Firehouse Subs of America. Mr. Fox spoke to the power of branding and creating a work culture of positive change, optimism and commitment throughout the store and its franchises. “The ability to stay customer focused and set high standards is what has helped Firehouse achieve its rapid growth,” said Mr. Fox. The RLPSA event also had a positive impact on Mr. Fox who, after meeting such impressive individuals at the Conference quipped, he may have to look into creating his own LP and Safety department.

Registrants were also treated to a rare look at the inside of security and loss prevention from one of the gaming industry’s largest players. Chuck Barry, SVP Security, Tropicana Entertainment Worldwide, shared insights on how gaming houses utilize CCTV cameras and setup their security operations. While the goals of both the restaurant and gaming industries are very similar, the methods of operation can be different. Mr. Barry challenged attendees to look at their own security challenges through the eyes of other industries to find unique solutions.

Other sessions included industry leaders presenting a number of key topics including planning and preparing for depositions, important changes in safety laws, phishing and fraud scams, smart safes, controlling food costs loss, emerging technologies and their effect on LP, mock disaster preparation, analytics, and lively roundtable debates on numerous industry topics including exception based reporting and training and awareness programs.

“We’re extremely excited about the continued growth of RLPSA and the annual meeting,” said Jim Forlenza, Executive Director. “This is the fifth consecutive year of double-digit growth for our meeting and it really underlies the quality education being presented through a number of exciting speakers – as well as the unique nature of our networking opportunities. Education is the key to our organization and our community.”

“The meeting is the apex of our industry functions, but our goal is to now take that success and build even richer resources for our membership and community so all our members become better practitioners,” added Joe Verber, Taco Bell, and newly installed President of RLPSA.

“The RLPSA Annual Meeting provides education and networking in a truly unique atmosphere. We have strived to create an environment where both members and vendors can engage, exchange and learn from each other – and I believe that is what makes the meeting successful,” added Verber.

RLPSA Announces 2014 Board of Directors: The RLPSA also announced its 2014 Board of Directors – Joe Verber, Taco Bell, will serve as President. Other Board members include James Brussow, Dave and Busters, Rob Holm, McDonald’s Corporation, Chris Manning, The Wendy’s Company, Vince Vittatoe, Bob Evans Farms, Inc., and Anne Sullivan, CKE Restaurants.

NFSSC Donates more than $3,000 to Three Square Food Bank: Through the efforts of the RLPSA member and vendor participants during the Annual meeting, a check for more than $3,000 will be donated to the Three Square Food Bank. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America program and serves the Southern Nevada region.

RLPSA Announces 2014 Meeting Dates: RLPSA officials also announced dates for its 35th Annual Meeting, August 3-6, 2014, at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, FL.

Notorious ‘EBayIsAJoke’ Troll, Known for Harassing Sellers- Possibly Outed By Investigative News Team

Chuck Fitch may be the man known as “EBayIsAJoke,” a notorious eBay troll despised for his horrible treatment of other site users.

Fitch’s alleged EBayIsAJoke trolling isn’t super serious business, but it does ruin the site experience for many hardworking small business owners — if Chuck is the man responsible for the “trolling.”

The unmasking of EBayIsAJoke came from a local “hall of shame” investigation by MyFoxDetroit. A reporter from the site tracked down the man they believe to be behind the high-level trolling — Fitch — and asked him about the practice of interfering with eBay commerce.

The Daily Dot explains that Fitch is accused of creating a massive and enduring hassle for people just trying to hawk their wares on eBay, saying:

“According to Wolcheck, Ebayisajoke’s ruse is to target small business owners, outbid all other potential buyers on their page, then not pay—keeping them from making a sale. Then, to top it off, he gives them a bad review, hurting their chances at future business.”

T.J. Maxx manager in Long Island busted for possession of $130,000 in stolen goods and had his own store set up selling stolen T.J. Maxx goods  Cornell Poyser, 40, an assistant manager at the retail chain’s Oceanside store, was caught red-handed as he drove a van packed with designer duds destined for his own shop in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, law enforcement sources said. More than $130,000 in designer duds and accessories were seized from Poyser’s van and the shop he opened nearly a year ago, a law enforcement source told the Daily News. “Even the racks and the displays came from the Oceanside store,” the source said. A lot of the merchandise Poyser was selling still bore T.J. Maxx labels, the source said. And he was protective of his purloined property, making sure he wired up high-end security cameras to eye his front door. The retailer’s own investigators launched a probe and caught Poyser on videotape stashing clothes, shoes, purses and luggage in the back of the store, the source said. They also watched him pull his van up to the back door after closing and load up. On July 28 and Aug. 3, the store sleuths tailed him to the East Flatbush store and watched him unload the loot. Then they went to the Brooklyn district attorney’s office, which sent undercover officers to his store. (Source nydailynews.com) (Source brooklyneagle.com)

Shoppers at a TJ Maxx help bust ORC gang in Ohio who had also hit other retailers  Shoppers at a TJ Maxx store alerted authorities when they saw two people stuffing dozens of high-end purses into shopping bags in Upper Arlington, Ohio.

Shortly after the arrest, Upper Arlington police say they found a set of car keys concealed by the female suspect. They traced it back to a parking lot, where police say they found a rental car with bags of stolen merchandise. Police say items included shoes, perfume and clothing from other stores including Gap Kids and Express Men. Some still had tags, and others were still on hangers.

What Really Sets Leaders Apart
This coach and consultant's five-year-old son taught him what it really means to be a true leader. When asked what he got to do as class leader for school, he replied "I got to open doors for people!" That is the true essence of being a leader: Leaders create opportunities for those they lead. (The best leaders focus on the people)


The Crucial Body Part All Great Leaders Must Enhance  It's not your eyes, or even your heart that is the most important body part for leaders. It's the ear- good listening is a critical skill for leaders and anyone who has to build trust, resolve conflicts, or understand expectations. Become a better listener with these three steps. (First, figure out your level of listening)
 

One Simple Move that Will Make You a Better Leader  Sometimes a little change-up is all you need to give you the perspective you've been looking for. BlueGrace's headquarters office swapped desks with other workers, allowing them to see their company in a new light. (As a leader you can learn more about your employees and what works and doesn't work in your company.)

How to Deal With Time-Wasters
The most successful entrepreneurs, or even leaders, are focused and efficient, and don't have time, or tolerance to deal with those who would rather waste your time. It's not being rude, it's setting priorities, but how do you deal with these time-wasters? (Start by responding to their requests quickly)

Finding the right network into a company is critical if one expects to truly be able to compete in this job market. Going beyond the HR executives and finding the hiring managers and other decision makers and being able to communicate with them or have your network of colleagues communicate with them is important. Managing those communications is no easy task and ensuring that the information is handled correctly and expediently can be delicate.

Just a Thought,
