Agilysys integrates two solutions to provide retailers more security

Agilysys, Inc. a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, announced that they have integrated their NextManager solution with Evolution Robotics Retail's LaneHawk product to help provide retailers with an increased level of bottom-of-basket (BOB) security.

Agilysys recently partnered with Evolution Robotics to assist retailers with detecting and recognizing items on the bottom of a shopping cart, and then sending the UPC information to the point-of-sale (POS) system via an Ethernet connection. This process helps to ensure that stores get paid for their BOB items.

By integrating its NextManager solution with LaneHawk, Agilysys is taking the process one step further, as the combined products proactively address all facets of losses arising from the bottom of the basket, including theft, forgetfulness, sweethearting or lapses in training.

“The integration between the two products helps to increase BOB security for retailers by adding an override to the register display. The override triggers an alert to NextManager, notifying managers of non-tendered merchandise before it leaves the store,” said Paul Civils, senior vice president and general manager of Agilysys Retail Solutions Group.

“If a BOB item has been missed, a cashier will be notified on his/her point-of-sale terminal. If the cashier opts to clear the override without ringing up the item, an alert will then be sent to the store manager notifying them of this occurrence.”

“Instead of a report being reviewed in the manager's office or at the corporate office once a day, the integration between the two products enables instantaneous notification of BOB clears to the manager,” said Mark Belfiglio, vice president of sales and marketing at Evolution Robotics Retail. “The instantaneous real-time notification is instrumental in cutting down on shrinkage.”
