Dedicated to Improving LP
Operations through Technology
Matthew Sack, CEO of
Security Industries (BSI) has always been fascinated with technology and how
it could be used to improve business operations and solve problems. When Macy's
recognized his technical savvy and recruited him to join the company nearly 30
years ago, he felt that his IT and Systems background could be an asset to
Retail Loss Prevention. Sack was excited to see how new systems and technology
could be used to define and combat shortage.
During his 12 year tenure with Macy's, he held a number of positions including
Vice President of Administration, Director of Administration, Manager of Systems
and Manager of Fraud. His primary focus was on developing and refining various
technology applications and programs for the Loss Prevention, Risk Management
and IT areas.
Upon leaving Macy's, Sack joined RuMe Corporation as its President and oversaw
the growth of that company. At the time, RuME was best known for providing
refurbished electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems and accessories. He
also created a leading interactive training company providing patented
e-learning to the safety, inventory and loss prevention industry.
As CEO of BSI and President/CEO of BSA, LLC, a rollup of companies from
Blackford Capital and Convergent Capital, Sack still relies on those lessons
learned in the early days of his career with Macy's. He strongly believes that
technology and data analytics can help retailers define programs that can
deliver more productive results for their companies. He holds customer service
and relationships in the retail community to be one of a company's most valuable
possessions and that by working together everyone comes out a winner.
Another cornerstone of the BSI operations is its
certified, pre-owned EAS
systems and accessories. Sack has built part of his company on helping retailers
realize that their LP assets retain their value for many years and showing them
ways to achieve an even greater ROI through reconditioned and refurbished
Under Sack's direction, BSI is committed to providing retailers with options for
their loss prevention programs. In addition to offering certified, pre-owned EAS
systems and accessories, the company also offers

specialized services include an express exchange or repair programs where
retailers can send in detachers or deactivators to be repaired or replaced often
times with a one day turn around. It offers a Depot program that will remove EAS
systems and accessories from closed locations, refurbish them to original
manufacturers' specifications and warehouse/depot the inventory until it is
needed in new locations. BSI also will buy legacy EAS systems and components or
accept trade-ins on new solutions.
Finally, keeping to his mantra of solving shrink problems through the use of
technology, Sack and his team recently introduced their new BSI Connect family
of services targeted toward curtailing ORC and other crimes against retailers.
