Checkpoint Systems Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has made EVOLVE-Store, a real-time app for smartphones and tablets that supports real-time electronic article surveillance (EAS) and organized retail crime (ORC) event management.

The app was developed in response to retail customer requests for an easy means of ensuring that store associates leverage EAS investments appropriately, comply with store shoplifting policies, and have EAS systems always turned on and operating properly.

Some of the popular features in the EVOLVE-Store app enable retailers to measure and improve consumer conversion rates through real-time visibility of the number of shoppers in stores. The app also measures policy compliance by managing response times to alarm events. By monitoring, measuring and managing an EAS program, retailers can deter opportunistic shoplifters and ORC activity, reducing shrink and increasing shelf availability, sales and profits. This, in turn, improves staff confidence and engagement with the EAS program, ensuring a significant improvement on the return on investment, according to a press release.

Additional popular features include a staff panic alert to request help from associates; an EAS night-save feature to save power when the store is closed; the ability to test, mute or disable EAS systems remotely; and multi-user logins for each smart device.

Uwe Sydon, senior vice president of innovation, Checkpoint Systems said, “Technology should make life easier for both consumers and retailers. EVOLVE-Store accomplishes this, with simple implementation and proven loss prevention and merchandise availability benefits that offer advantages to everyone.”

Checkpoint provides end-to-end solutions enabling retailers to achieve accurate real-time inventory, accelerate the replenishment cycle, prevent out-of-stocks and reduce theft, thus improving merchandise availability and the shopper’s experience. (GK)
