New Advances in Predictive Crime
Risk Analytics Help Retailers Pinpoint Shrink with Unprecedented
Using new, advanced Big Data modeling, Location, Inc. has released cutting-edge
predictive crime risk analytics in
SecurityGauge. SecurityGauge allows retailers to predict and mitigate shrink
with new precision and unmatched spatial accuracy. Based upon over a decade of
research and development, SecurityGauge has been proven to predict average
annual per-store shrink with greater than 94% accuracy.
In separate blind tests performed with leading retailers from diverse retail
sectors, SecurityGauge crime risk ratings predict actual per-store shrink with
94%-97% accuracy. These tests show that average annual shrink of high crime risk
locations can be more than 3.5 times more than low risk locations. In one test,
high crime risk stores experienced greater than $100,000 in additional annual
shrink over stores SecurityGauge proactively categorized as low risk. Armed with
this knowledge, retailers can precisely and objectively deploy security
resources to store locations with higher return on investment.
Accurately predicting shrink on a store-by-store basis is the first step in
effective shrink mitigation. SecurityGauge uses new technology with unmatched
spatial accuracy to enhance retailers’ capabilities in Loss Prevention and Real
