Solution providers offer a wide spectrum of mission-critical products and services designed to help meet the rising demands of the asset protection function and the retail business in general. We use these resources to increase efficiencies, improve performance, enhance productivity, support safety, lower costs, and discourage theft.
By the same respect, our vendors can offer much more than simply providing mission-critical products and services. They have become an extension of our team and partners in the success of our department, our program and our company. They work with us to find solutions to both the simple and complex challenges we face on a daily basis. These relationships have become an essential factor in the success of today’s loss prevention programs, and it is more important than ever that we effectively manage all aspects of our vendor relationships—from selecting the right vendor to achieving optimal results that best meet our business objectives.

Many loss prevention products on the market today keep high-theft merchandise under lock and key, which can decrease sales by as much as 38 percent. With the LM Tag™, an Intelligent Loss Prevention solution, items are not locked up or stored behind a counter. Instead, customers can interact with products, eliminating the need for additional staff assistance.
The LM Tag uses the combination of a light sensor and motion detector to notify when the product is both in motion and concealed. The LM Tag alarms at the point of theft, making it the only device on the market that can alert you before product walks out the door.
