Webinar: Christmas in July

Is your business ready for the busiest shopping days of the year? The asset protection community is a critical part of the process, and we are at that time of year when we need to be planning for the upcoming holiday season. Successful retailers understand that without having an early and effective plan in place, we increase the chances of not reaching our most critical goals for the year.

Register now to join us on July 27, at 2 pm ET as we hold a roundtable discussion with leaders from different retail verticals to discuss the challenges of the upcoming holidays, methods and strategies to help us prepare, and the steps that need to be taken starting now to capitalize on our success.

Revenue goals will always remain at the top of that list. Inventory considerations will be top of mind, along with marketing, visual display, and the typical holiday attention. But there are so many other things to consider that can be as long as a child’s letter to the North Pole—factors that must be strategically considered to keep our businesses safe, efficient, productive, and profitable.
