Theft Prevention


Self-serve at the retail level has become essential. Yet this term, taken literally, by customers, vendors, service providers and staff alike, can lead to enormous retail loss. Today’s shoplifter is not always easily recognizable or out in the open. The result has led to a striking decline in sales. With POS-T Theft Prevention, high-theft products can now be presented for free access by customers. The OTP Safe Fixture combines promotional merchandise presentation with efficient theft prevention.

“Presentation of the product group in retail was heavily restricted and regulated due to the high theft rates for tobacco goods. In a combined effort with POS TUNING, we have developed theft reducing shelving elements. The theft rates have reduced by more than 90 % since the implementation of this shelving element. We now use this shelving element for lots of customers with huge success. The POS-T Theft Prevention System has brought noticeable success at the Point of Sale for ourselves and our customers.”
