Finalists Announced: 2017 (R)Tech Asset Protection Innovation Awards

The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) announced eight finalists for the 2017 (R)Tech Asset Protection Innovation Awards. The Awards serve as a showcase for emerging, game-changing technologies that mitigate total retail loss, as defined in a groundbreaking research report published by RILA last year.

RILA received applications across AP business functions, including business intelligence and analytics, workplace safety, crimes against business, and more. Finalists will showcase their cutting-edge technology to a panel of top executives at RILA’s 2017 Retail Asset Protection Conference, April 9-12 in New Orleans, where the winners will be announced. Conference attendees will have the chance to meet the finalists, experience their technology, and cast their vote for Retailers’ Choice Award.

“The awards are an exciting opportunity to recognize visionary companies that are developing innovative technology to address the industry’s biggest challenges,” said Lisa LaBruno, RILA’s senior vice president of retail operations. “Our retail panel of judges felt that these companies stood apart from the pack, and they should be proud of their designation as leaders in innovation. We’re looking forward to crowning a winner in New Orleans.”
