I was recently talking to a national company who was incurring losses due to theft at the hands of major organized crime rings. They wanted to know how to reduce the losses and increase their clothing security.
I spoke with them about some of their basic operations to get a better feel for what we could do for them. As it turned out, most of the issues had nothing to do with clothing alarms or clothing security tags. The biggest complications came from their inventory ordering and management.
Their inventory relied heavily on special buys. These were large purchases of designer clothing that were either a second run or otherwise greatly reduced item. Once these items sold out, there was no rebuy of the merchandise. Inventory was taken once a year so it was potentially twelve months before a loss was identified. Needless to say, tracking their losses was a difficult task.
I suggested that they start by drilling down the sales reports. It is there that they would be able to see what was there but also what was not. If they were not selling in a particular area they might be experiencing theft issues, If you don’t have the product to sell, your sales suffer. Next is to evaluate the clothing security on those items and increase their usage accordingly.
