Lower shoplifting costs and increase your profits


Shoplifting is costing you and your customers.
The good news is that installing a RTP retail security system
can lower your retail theft by 75%
and increase your profits.


Merchandise shrinkage due to retail theft drains profits. For every item stolen, you can not recoup the loss.

When an item is stolen customers are denied the opportunity to purchase that item.

In some cases, the cost of dealing with the crime that takes place is paid for, in part, by the customer through an increase in the cost of goods leaving you uncompetitive in the market.

According to the recently released Global Retail Theft Barometer, global retail theft reached $104.5 billion in the past year.

The fact is shoplifiting is on the rise and it's happening to you today.

The good news is that studies in both the US and Canada have proven that having a merchandise security system installed reduces losses by 75% in an average store.
