Part 1: Alpha Technology S3i – Taking Alpha Security To A New Level
When we discuss merchandise protection the first thought is always towards preventing theft and fraud.  The same thing can be said in discussing Alpha Technology; our initial thought turns to security devices such as bottle locks, Alpha hard tags and Alpha Keeper boxes.  There is nothing wrong with this, the purpose of retail anti-theft devices is to prevent shoplifting, but, what if it is combined with smart intelligence?  What benefits could your store(s) see by incorporating tools that not only enhance theft prevention but also provides inventory management data?  Alpha Security S3i technology takes merchandise protection to a new level, bringing Loss Prevention and store operations together to optimize store profitability.  In part one of this article, I want to cover the impact Alpha S3i can have on Loss Prevention tactics to save you money.  In part 2 we will review the benefits of S3i from an operations and inventory control perspective.
     It used to be that the primary purpose of retail anti-theft devices like Alpha hard tags and electronic article surveillance systems was to prevent shoplifting. EAS tagging or placing alarmed hard tags was going to deter theft or it was going to sound an alarm when someone attempted to sneak out of the store with product.  Alpha S3i uses the advancements in mobile and cloud based technologies to now make it possible to track merchandise as it is removed from a shelf and moved through a store.  Working with Alpha Technology, monitoring zones will be created for areas that are designated as high risk.  For example, perhaps your store has an aisle or two dedicated to just high risk electronics such as computer routers and hard drives.  That area can be set up as a zone and if merchandise tagged with Alpha S3i alarm devices is moved out of that zone, a real time alert can be sent to store radios, smart phones, tablets, or computers.  These alerts can prompt personnel to offer customer service to the patron who has selected the merchandise and walked out of the area.  Perhaps your business is not large enough to justify a Loss Prevention officer, so alerting store personnel or managers may be your only immediate responder.  Getting that customer service to the individual walking away with the merchandise may be your best means of preventing a loss.
     For Loss Prevention personnel, the benefits are even more pronounced.  In-Store Loss Prevention teams can receive an alert and immediately respond to a signal on their radio or smart device.  Monitoring cameras has always been a hit or miss proposition.  Even with multiple digital cameras hooked up to a closed circuit television system, one person can only see so much at one time.  Alpha Security S3i technology can make security teams smarter in how they focus their efforts.  For smaller stores that may not have the benefit of in-store Loss Prevention, but may be monitored from a district or regional level, S3i still provides alerts and time stamps provide the ability to narrow CCTV review time down to a specific event.  This data may provide information needed to track an organized theft ring or even dishonest employee activity.  I recall my own experiences of video review for missing merchandise.  Sometimes I did not have any more information than what sales tracking reports could provide on merchandise, such as when an item was last received in the store.  Video review could be time consuming and did not always provide the results I was looking for in an investigation.  With Alpha Technology S3i, investigation time for missing merchandise can be reduced to minutes versus hours.
     Make your security system work smarter not harder.  Leverage the advantages of Alpha security S3i technology to keep your merchandise where you want it, in the store or at a point of sale. Checkout what the next generation of retail anti- theft devices such as S3i Alpha hard tags and spider wrap can do to protect your assets.

(Alpha Hard Tag) Prevent Shoplifting-2,Retail Anti Theft Devices-2, Alpha Jewel Lok-2,  Alpha Thunder Tag-1, Alpha Hang Tag-1
Everybody Likes To Get Something For Nothing
Shoplifters, whether they are professionals or just stealing on a whim, cost retailers millions of dollars every year.  Many blogging sites and web pages are dedicated to educating others on how to get away with merchandise and avoid loss prevention personnel.  They share information they have gathered: which stores utilize retail anti theft devices, where cameras are located, whether or not there are plain-clothes detectives working in the store, and even when shifts change.  (When employees are coming in for the day they are busy and distracted, and those that are leaving generally have zero interest in dealing with a shoplifter.)  There are even articles on which stores will prosecute and which will just let you go.  Sadly, in the age of camera phones and over the top surveillance, many retailers have steered away from the zero tolerance theft policies of the past.  I still believe in having someone arrested and letting the officer handcuff them and parade them through the store all the way to the front door.  Then I want them stuffed in a patrol car, taken downtown for fingerprinting, and held in a cell for a few hours.  In my mind, that’s how you prevent shoplifting from happening again.  
Of course, the more important issue is to stop it from happening in the first place and not ever worrying with the repeat offender.  That’s where the tools like Alpha Keepers, Alpha Hang Tags, Alpha Thunder Tags, and Alpha Jewel Loks come in.  These prevent shoplifting through deterrence, which is paramount to any shrink reduction plan.  If a shoplifter comes in the store and approaches the targeted items, they will walk back out the door, shoulders slumped, and empty handed since they know they most likely cannot defeat the tools that are protecting the inventory.
I live in a super small town where nothing really exciting really happens.  However, about an hour away is a big city where we just had a very well-known jewel thief hit three different stores.  Her plan is the same in every store.  She is an older woman, and dresses in designer dresses and carries a very expensive purse.  She actually wants the staff to notice her and give her attention.  She asks the clerk to show her something with massive diamond first, acts mildly disinterested, and then asks for several other items.  She uses bait and switch tactics, and confuses the clerk with all her choices from the cases.  At some point she slips on the original ring with the bigger than life diamond, and walks out the door before the staff ever notices.  This is a seventy-something year old woman, and she has been stealing jewelry all her life and all over the world.  The one thing the three stores had in common was that none of them employ any type of retail anti theft devices, like Alpha Jewel Loks.  One of the employees that got duped by this old lady was the manager of the jewelry store.  He should have been setting the example and not pulling out another piece until she had given back the first one.  Instead, he fell right in her trap and was blinded by her appearance of having an elite status.  
Appearances can certainly be deceiving, but the truth is anyone can be a thief.  Most of it happens due to greed and not need.  They figure your store has fifty of something and you won’t miss that one.

Merchandise Availability- Alpha Security

When we look at ways to prevent shoplifting, we are really trying to do is to increase our merchandise availability. Sure, no one really wants thieves and crooks taking advantage of our businesses, but the bottom line is about maximizing our availability to increase our revenue from customer sales.
Retail anti theft devices, such as the one developed by industry leader Alpha Security, are tried and true tools specifically created to prevent shoplifting. As shoplifting decreases, our inventories become more accurate and more plentiful (due to a lack of missing merchandise). We, as retailers, spend significantly less time worrying about whether or not we have a particular item in stock, and more time getting the customers to actually buy them.
When customers can walk into a location and find the item they want, and the quantity they need, sales increase. Taking it one step further, you also get the advantage of repeat business. The customer knows they can rely on your retail location to be in stock for their consumer needs. By reducing theft through the use of Alpha Security retail anti theft devices, you assure you have the right in stock availability to satisfy your customer’s needs.

New In Box-Alpha Spider Wrap

Some inventory items are valuable only if they can be resold as NIB or New In Box. Any damage to the box, or a lack of tags is an indicator that the product is either used, or stolen- both of which reduces the resale value as well as the actual ability to be resold. Other items can be sold without the box. In those cases, the Alpha Security Alpha Spider Wrap is an effective deterrent.
Power tools are a good example of an item that does not need to be sold new in box. In some cases, it is even easier to sell power tools if they look to be slightly used. These tools are taken to construction sites and sold with a story that they no longer need them, or they didn’t like the tool and bought a different one.
The Alpha Spider Wrap retail anti theft devices prevent shoplifting by keeping the power tools in their boxes. This makes them harder to steal. A large box is more obvious walking out a door, than a power tool tucked inside of a coat. If the Alpha Spider Wrap wires are cut to eliminate the tools packaging, an audible alarm is activated, alerting everyone around that the box is being tampered with.

On The Way Out- Prevent Shoplifting

If you are one of the 95% of retailers who has experienced shoplifting in your stores over the last few years, you might be trying to figure out how to build a better mousetrap that will prevent shoplifting. The success will be in not stopping the shoplifters once they have started trying to steal, but rather stopping them from wanting to steal once they are in your store.
That subtle difference can mean the world to your shrink results and to your bottom line. Many retailers don’t realize just how hard it is to stop a shoplifter once they have started the shoplifting process.
If a shoplifter has come into the store and weighed the effectiveness of your security with their own level of confidence and decided they can get away with the theft, it is too late. Now the shoplifter has a goal in mind, and a plan. Once they have the merchandise in their possession, they are determined to get back out of the store, sometimes by whatever means they deem necessary- including violence.
By beefing up your retail anti theft devices and other kinds of store security, you start to weigh the scales back into your favor, persuading the shoplifter to steal somewhere less risky.

Lurking In The Shadows- Alpha Nano Gate

I think every retailer I have ever worked for has stumbled across a shoplifter lurking in a back corner. They sit and they wait for an opportunity to remove retail anti theft devices or conceal their shoplifting efforts.
We have all seen the signs of these shoplifting safe havens. When you look under shelves, or tables you can find a mass of torn of price tags, or sometimes locate hoards of merchandise that a shoplifter is ferreting away to steal later on when they think the coast is clear.
While the obvious solution is to open up these back corners and areas, it is not always practical (or physically possible) to try and remerchandise the entire store to eliminate them. 
Another solution is to use retail anti theft devices like the Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate. This is a product that is designed to fit into small spaces, or back areas of a store that lend themselves to shoplifting.
The Alpha Nano Gate is a miniature EAS tower that attaches onto a wall or other stable spot. As a customer or shoplifter enters the area with tagged merchandise, an alarm will go off alerting staff to a potential theft issue in progress.

One For Each- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Alpha Security Alpha Jewel Lok is actually comprised of three different locking mechanisms for earrings. They recognized that they could not just make one style of Alpha Jewel Lok that would sufficiently protect all three styles of earrings available on the market today.
The Alpha Jewel Lok retail anti theft devices are hard to defeat locks that secure earrings onto the jewelry cards, preventing a shoplifter from easily stealing the merchandise.
The three kinds of locks are for hoop earrings, stud earrings and French wire earrings. Each lock designed with the specific characteristics of each earring in mind.
The stud earring locks not only attach the earring to the jewelry card by securing the post on the back, but they also incorporate a “parking” area for the backs to be kept. As anyone who wears a stud earring knows, the back is just as essential as the actual earring is when you are wearing them.
The French wires attach onto the wire with a low profile design that cannot be seen from the front. This helps keep a better visual appearance for these often flashy or highly decorative earrings.
Hoop earrings also need their own locks to prevent shoplifting. Just like the other two styles, the hoop posts are secured to the card from the back providing a secure deterrent from shoplifters.

Tamper Free Living- Alpha 2 Alarm

The best feature of the Alpha Security Alpha 2 Alarm products is their anti tamper alarm system. Built into each of their Alpha 2 Alarm retail anti theft devices is an audible alarm that emits a loud siren when the device is tampered with.
When you prevent shoplifting, having retail anti theft devices that monitors your merchandise every step of the way is an important feature to have. It is one of those functions that when you start to use it, you realize what a difference it can make. You also start to realize what you have been missing out on by not having it.
Most common shoplifters will simply bypass stealing from a business that uses retail anti theft devices. However, there are more organized, career criminals that will make attempts at defeating these devices. When you use the Alpha 2 Alarm products, you reduce the likelihood of even a career criminal attempting to defeat the EAS tags. 
The ones who still make their attempts will discover that they set off the alarm in the store while tampering with the device. Not only will it potentially stop the theft in progress, but it will also help you identify potential thieves in your store as their anonymity has been blown,

It is one of those functions that when you start to use it, you realize what a difference it can make. You also start to realize what you have been missing out on by not having it.

Most common shoplifters will simply bypass stealing from a business that uses retail anti theft devices. However, there are more organized, career criminals that will make attempts at defeating these devices. When you use the Alpha 2 Alarm products, you reduce the likelihood of even a career criminal attempting to defeat the EAS tags.

The ones who still make their attempts will discover that they set off the alarm in the store while tampering with the device. Not only will it potentially stop the theft in progress, but it will also help you identify potential thieves in your store as their anonymity has been blown.

Unlock The Code- Alpha Security

Alpha Security uses many different kinds of retail anti theft devices in their efforts to prevent shoplifting and reduce inventory shrink. While there are many retail anti theft devices, Alpha Security wanted retailers to be able to use a universal key to detach them. This would limit confusion at the point of sale and ensure speedy checkout, as cashiers would not have to flip between multiple keys to detach multiple styles of retail anti theft devices.
The problem comes from multiple retailers using the same kind of detacher key. Shoplifters are starting to steal the detacher keys and use them for their own theft purposes. We are even seeing employees accidentally lose their key and shoplifters finding them and using them.
Needless to say, it would be unbearably expensive for a small business to have to reinvest in an entirely new security system just because of one lost or stolen detacher key. Alpha Security, realizing that this was starting to arise as a major issue, immediately began to develop a new key: The S3verify Key and devices. 
Now, these keys and retail anti theft devices have a store specific code. Similar to a chip encoded car key, without the proper key, the locks will not open. A stolen key will erase itself preventing a shoplifter to use it.
