LP Software Celebrates 15
Who are the "LP Guys" and
where did they come
LP Software, Inc. started in 1998 as a
venture partnership dedicated to developing and delivering unique software
applications designed to revolutionize the retail loss prevention mission. The
Loss Prevention Management System (LPMS), was released in 1999. LPMS

founder and president, Brian Eskra, and co-founder and vice president, Roy
Haehnel, the LP Guys have developed LPMS - the industry’s most
powerful and adaptive loss prevention management tool available. Needless to
say, they succeeded.

philosophy based on trust. They have assembled a team of experienced leaders,
many of whom have worked in retail loss prevention themselves. Brian and Roy
