In recent years, multiple digital channels have been added to the communications mix, including a smartphone app, podcasts, EyeOnLP videos, webinars, and a digital version of the print magazine, culminating in the launch in fourth quarter 2015 of a comprehensive new digital platform at LossPreventionMedia.com. The new technology platform supports all the existing options, plus daily newsletters, a new digital magazine format, product directory, special reports, an expanded industry calendar of events, education and career resources, as well as multiple social network groups.
