The Benefits of Open Retail Security

Preventing theft in retail stores is crucial for store owners. However, many loss prevention solutions, such as locking products away in cases, create more headaches for retailers and shoppers alike. Locking products away in cases may stop theft to a certain degree, but it also produces extra labor needed by store staff to manage the access of products. Honest customers also get frustrated that they cannot access the products they want to purchase and must spend unnecessary time searching for help to get the product. All these issues eventually lead to lost sales.

Retailers do not need to hide their products behind a locked case or shelf away from shoppers. Effective loss prevention solutions can prevent theft while keeping merchandise accessible. For example, open security systems monitor activity in or around the vicinity of protected merchandise, notifying store associates of suspicious activity while allowing honest shoppers to conduct their business without assistance.
