Alpha Technology is very versatile for protecting a retailer’s inventory. I remember when our company first took the leap and bought Alpha Keepers for our razor cartridge refills. We used to merchandise them all in these big bulky display units. They were terribly heavy and difficult to correctly install. The customers had trouble figuring out how they actually dispensed the razors; they had to press a button and then open the coinciding door for their desired choice. If the door did not close properly it sounded an alarm over the PA system. Oh, and the doors would break so easily, then we had to disable the alarm or the constant sounding would drive us mad!
So there was this magic day when we got Alpha Keepers for them instead, so all we had to do was install some pegs, and just hang up the keepers. It made our work so much easier, and the customers were very pleased with the simplicity of the system.
I believe the next size Alpha Keepers we got was for our high retail stomach remedies. Every time one would announce it was going to become an OTC item, rather than prescription only, it was only a matter of time before they were targeted by thieves. Again, rather than some complicated system, or keeping them locked behind the counter, we had the option to just lock them in the clear boxes and put them right on the shelves.
We sell a little of many different categories. Once, we had a special purchase of small HD televisions. Our stores became famous on the local news for a sudden rash of thefts because people were grabbing the boxes, which conveniently had handles right on top, and running out the door with up to four at a time. Thankfully, our company’s next investment was the Alpha Spider Wraps. They stretch to fit the item you need to protect, and will alarm if there is an attempt to leave with them still attached, and can also self-alarm if someone tries to tamper with or cut the cables. I use these things on boxes of name brand hair regrowth, high retail electric toothbrushes, and even some other small electronics. (Thankfully we are no longer in the television business.)
Another store manager came to my store just the other day and was lamenting of the woman that keeps coming to her store and running out with large bottles of laundry detergent. I just happened to have a box of Alpha Cable Locks on hand. These are very easy to utilize on bottles like this; they just loop right around the handle and lock tight. The Alpha Cable Lock is very sturdy and offers alarm capability as well as the other tools. They are also a great visual deterrent. Luckily I do not have any issues with theft of my laundry items, and this box is just sitting in my office. So I gave it to this other store manager to use at her store instead.
I am super thankful for my company owners purchasing these items for our stores, and they have made a major improvement in stopping the losses we were incurring. All of these tools are easy to attach, easy to remove, and allow our customers the most easy experience shopping in our stores which is one reason they choose us in the first place.
