  • Aspect EliteLP™ helps retailers reduce risk and protect profits through data management, analytics, and theft prevention. This easy-to-use solution offers powerful reporting and timely alerts.

    Aspect EliteLP uses powerful data-mining techniques to identify exceptions to normal point-of-sale activities, exposing possible employee theft, fraud, or training and operational deficiencies. Through its vast reporting capabilities, it provides retailers with a return on investment in as little as six months.

    The related APIS (Asset Protection Information System) is a powerful workflow management tool that has earned its place as a leading solution for LP and Risk Management professionals. Beyond simple case management, APIS contains powerful utilities to collect, analyze, report, and collaborate on critical incident and case data. Its audit module allows retailers to create forms and reports, providing the flexibility needed to create unique strategies to complement their processes. Store audits can be performed with improved speed and accuracy, combining data collection, data entry, and report preparation into one powerful solution.

    Audits, cases, and incidents are easy to manage from any device with CAMS and LPMS....

  • CAMS (Compliance Audit Management System) effectively tracks your retail store compliance issues from any device. Users in the field enjoy easy access to trends and data that make a meaningful impact on safety and security while reducing cost by 25 percent.

  • INCENT

  • Incent™ version 5 increases customer value by creating intelligent, customized incentives in real-time and delivering them at the end of a return transaction. The incentives are optimized to keep shoppers in the store to meet the retailer’s specific objectives for the short-term and the long-term. They are effective—consumers using the offers increased their incremental spending by more than 34 percent the day of the return and continued to shop more frequently and spend more money during the following weeks. Why? The proprietary, patented solution uses sophisticated analytical modeling and individual consumer’s purchase and return data to identify the incentives most likely to influence the shopper’s future purchase behavior. This unlocks new margin and rewards customer loyalty, regardless of whether the original purchase was made in-store or online. Incent offers a guaranteed ROI.

  • RTI
    RTI™ (Real-Time Integration) significantly cuts the delivery time and complexity of integration solutions, simplifying processes for integration architects and developers....

  • RTI™ (Real-Time Integration) significantly cuts the delivery time and complexity of integration solutions, simplifying processes for integration architects and developers. For example, today’s retail solutions collect large amounts of data; gathering and routing that information from all the stores to the retailer’s corporate office was frequently too difficult to manage. RTI solves that problem by using a powerful but prescriptive approach to solving integration problems. RTI comes complete with all the tools a retailer needs to integrate multiple systems and provide the workflow process that mediates their interactions. It is an intuitive solution which is rich in functionality, allowing complex mission critical integration solutions to be developed rapidly by relatively non-technical resources.

  • SECURE
    Secure™ Store version 5 helps retailers get to the information needed to solve problems and improve performance....

  • Secure™ Store version 5 helps retailers get to the information needed to solve problems and improve performance. Far more than a traditional exception reporting solution; it combines artificial intelligence with standard query-based research to find where and how losses occur, and then offers next steps. Users are not just confronted with data, they are given answers and pathways to resolution.

    Secure makes sales reducing activities easier to find and resolve—events such as employee fraud at the point-of-sale, merchandise being lost or stolen from the back room, process inefficiencies, and more. Plus, the solution is not limited to POS data—it can pull information from systems throughout the organization spanning multiple banners, channels, and data sources. The interface and analytics are so easy to use that the solution can be deployed to many departments, empowering more people to understand the business better. Secure typically reaches 100 percent ROI in six months.
