Understanding The ROI of A Loss Prevention System When You Use A Loss Prevention ROI Calculator
Can Loss Prevention be free? That seems like a silly question to ask. Why not ask if a car can be free or how about a free vacation to the Bahamas? I suppose if you were to win a raffle or a contest maybe either one could be free. Of course, even then you are going to have to pay taxes and then it won’t feel so free. If I reply to a “special offer” for a free one month trial of a sports broadcast website so that I can watch any of my favorite sports events why do I have to sign up for my free offer using a credit card? I have a sneaky suspicion that the website expects me to forget to cancel my free offer so they can bill me the next month. Why not get Manager training to Stop Shoplifting for free? Better yet, how about asking for a free Loss Prevention ROI calculator to use to figure out the cost and benefits a Sensormatic System would give you? It all sounds ridiculous. What company is going to offer free ANYTHING to customers without some sort of cost attached?
I have a secret for you. Can Loss Prevention be free? Yes, it can. So is the Loss Prevention ROI Calculator that will help you find out how this is so. A Loss Prevention system from Sensormatic is the best way to prevent theft caused by shoplifting. A system includes the towers, the tags, the deactivation pads and hard tag removal tools. It may also include peripheral attachments such as an integrated people counting device or a Sensormatic Synergy Camera. All of these do cost money. So the question is if the system and its components cost money then how in the world can they be free? Are you going to have to enter a raffle to win a system? No, it isn’t that complicated. The way a Loss Prevention system is going to be free is in the amount of money it is going to save you in shortage. That is where the Loss Prevention ROI Calculator comes in to play. If you navigate to the Loss Prevention Systems, Inc. (LPSI) website and look at the top of the page there are tabs and one is labeled “ROI Calc.” A simple click of the tab takes the user to the calculator itself and here is where two pieces of information are entered, the (estimated) annual sales of the store and the amount you are willing to spend on EAS (electronic article surveillance) equipment. The calculator does the rest of the work providing the estimated amount you will reduce your shrinkage by and giving you the estimated number of months it will take for your system to pay for itself. After a system has paid for itself you can realistically put the savings back to your profit line.
LPSI could have charged for the use of the calculator but they chose not to do so. It was more important to them that retail owners and managers see how significant the impact of a Sensormatic system can be for a store. The Loss Prevention ROI Calculator is also free because it does not require any kind of sign in to use it. No one is tracking the user to hound them later. Being free from a barrage of advertisements and solicitations in your email is a benefit that makes this calculator free and that much more appealing to those who use it.
One more thing that is going to surprise you is that not only can a Loss Prevention system and the ROI calculator be free; manager training to stop shoplifting can be free too! As incredible as it may sound if you purchase a Sensormatic system from LPSI you will also receive free shoplifting prevention training. I’m not talking about only training on how to use your new system I’m also talking about the training necessary to deter shoplifting. They will also provide guidance in establishing a Loss Prevention program so you can sustain your efforts at shortage reduction.
Can Loss Prevention be free? I don’t see how you can answer that question except in the affirmative. From the LPSI ROI Calculator to the training that will help you stop thieves to the actual system paying for itself it can all be free. What isn’t free are the losses your store is incurring as criminals steal from you while you consider whether or not to try the ROI calculator. Don’t delay check it out today I am sure you will be convinced.
