availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced
EVOLVE-Store, a real-time app for smartphones and tablets that supports
real-time electronic article surveillance (EAS) and organized retail crime (ORC)

Some of the popular features in the EVOLVE-Store app enable retailers to measure
and improve consumer conversion rates through real-time visibility of the number
of shoppers in stores. The app also measures policy compliance by managing
response times to alarm events. By monitoring, measuring and managing an EAS
program, retailers can deter opportunistic shoplifters and ORC activity,
reducing shrink and increasing shelf availability, sales and profits. This, in
turn, improves staff confidence and engagement with the EAS program, ensuring a
significant improvement on the return on investment.

associates; an EAS night-save feature to save power when the store is closed;
the ability to test, mute or disable EAS systems remotely; and multi-user logins
for each smart device.

inventory more closely and replenish "true" out-of-stocks, so merchandise they
seek will likely be available on shelves when purchasing online through click
and collect, or buying directly in stores. Moreover, studies have shown that
shoppers feel safer in monitored retail environments.
