We’re quickly creeping up to a new decade and as we approach the 2020’s many retail clients are wondering what is in store over the next decade. Over the past ten years we’ve seen an explosion of online shopping, mobile phone use, social media and some amazing technology that’s making getting the items we want simpler, quicker and more convenient.
Even with all these amazing innovations, there’s still something wonderful about being able to pick up, test, play with and handle a product before making a purchase and the quickly growing augmented market combining mobile apps, measurements tools and location based advertising means that the competition for foot traffic in the retail sector is high.
With the competition fierce for the available foot traffic in retail outlets, it makes perfect sense that you ensure the stock you have in your store, outlet or supermarket is secure and doesn’t suffer from shopstealing (also called shoptheft and shoplifting). This is where Electronic Article Surveillance Systems shine as not only do they offer a visible warning for would-be thieves, it’s an alarmed system that can be customised to suit your store, the layout and the type of products you stock.
