Gatekeeper Systems’ Purchek Technology: A Game-Changing Solution

In response to the escalating challenges of retail theft and the associated risks to employee safety, Gatekeeper Systems has developed the Purchek pushout theft solution, a groundbreaking technology poised to revolutionize retail loss prevention strategies. The Purchek solution stands as a testament to innovative technology’s role in combatting organized retail crime (ORC) and shoplifting while prioritizing employee safety. The Purchek® solution operates on an intelligent system designed to detect and deter theft in a non-confrontational manner. It employs advanced technology to monitor shopping carts, identifying potential theft through a series of sensors and cart behavior analytics. When a shopping cart with unpaid merchandise attempts to exit the store, the system activates a locking mechanism on the cart, immobilizing it within the store premises. This approach not only prevents theft but does so without requiring direct employee intervention, thereby reducing the risk of confrontations and violence.

The benefits of the Purchek pushout theft prevention solution are multifaceted. For retailers, it offers a robust tool against the rampant issue of pushout theft—where bad actors fill a cart with merchandise and exit the store without paying. By effectively stopping these thefts at the exit, Purchek technology significantly reduces inventory loss and out-of-stocks.

Moreover, its discreet operation promotes an open and inviting shopping experience, preserving the store’s atmosphere and customer satisfaction. However, the most salient feature of the Purchek solution is its non-confrontational nature. Traditional loss prevention methods often put employees in the direct path of conflict, risking their safety. The Purchek solution alleviates this necessity, allowing employees to maintain a safe distance from potential theft situations. The system handles the intervention, thereby reducing the likelihood of violent encounters. This aspect not only safeguards employees but also contributes to a healthier, less stressful work environment.
