Obtain Critical Data and Analytic Intelligence With S3i RTLS Wireless In-Store
Increases Retail Sales, Improves On-Shelf
Reduces Shrink on High-Value Merchandise
S3i, a scalable RTLS (real time location system) wireless in-store network works
Alpha High Theft Solutions' alarmed devices to obtain critical
data and analytic intelligence, increasing sales, improving on-shelf
availability and reducing shrink on high-value merchandise.
S3i's smart devices work in conjunction with smart keys to
register all events, such as commissioning, removal of devices and theft.
Through better and real-time stock visibility and shrink reduction, store
managers are then able to increase sales. Better stock visibility allows
retailers to know where the products are in real time, and also have a clear and
accurate vision of the quantities, while the use of smart keys reduces both
internal and external shrink.
S3i offers retailer's corporate management, store operations and loss prevention
critical data on inventory quantity, location and movement of their high-value
items within the store. For example, a store manager can have immediate
visibility to all of the store's high-value merchandise protected with S3i
When a shopper inquires about a specific item, the store associate can quickly
locate it following the user-friendly graphical user interface. Any shoplifting
attempt to remove the S3i device creates an immediate alert/alarm that enables
store personnel to address according to store policies. In addition, any removal
of the S3i device with an authorized key is logged and can help reduce incidents
of internal theft.
Alpha's proven S3
Hard Tags and
Spider Wraps have been enhanced by
adding S3i technology, making them smart, and giving them the ability to let
retailers know exactly where and what is happening with their high-value
merchandise. Retailers are enabled to openly display high-risk merchandise such
as electronics, designer apparel, luxury handbags and more, improving the
shopping experience and increasing likelihood of sale.
Some large retailers are seeing the benefits as they are piloting S3i to create
zones around high-risk merchandise and high-risk areas such as backrooms,
fitting rooms, rest rooms and exits. With the technology, they are able to
detect and deter shoplifting, organized retail crime and employee pilfering. S3i
is customized to provide real-time notifications when merchandise enters or
exits designated zones or when there is an attempted unauthorized removal of the
device. It uses audible and/or visible alerts delivered to associates via
smartphones, tablets, radio headsets, or public address systems. This enables
retailers to track high-risk merchandise in real-time and respond more quickly
to potential theft events.
