Taking advantage of emerging technologies can make it easier to deter theft, according to a new article from The Retail Jeweler. Start the new year right by better-protecting inventory kept in display cases from shoplifters and light-fingered employees, advised Sid Kalantar, senior vice president of sales and marketing of Senseon Secure Access, which provides a keyless, hidden, electronic locking system ideal for jewelry showcases.
“Retail jewelers must be super-vigilant and take additional steps to minimize merchandise losses,” Kalantar said. “Beyond surveillance and alarms, they need to pay careful attention to every piece of jewelry kept in a display case and shown to shoppers.”
He added: “Most thefts involve jewelry being taken from showcases, which need better protection. The locking systems for cases and the way sales associates handle merchandise often create opportunities for criminals.”
