As the major conferences began to postpone, reschedule, and cancel due to covid-19, we saw the opportunity to create something different, to democratize the conference experience so anyone in AP/LP could participate for free, to learn and network, from anywhere in the world.
Bobby joined Auror, the Retail Crime Intelligence platform, as Director of Market Development - North America & Retail Asset Protection about a year ago. Here are his thoughts on his experience with Auror so far.
We’re excited to announce that, amid the COVID 19 madness, The Warehouse Group has joined the Auror community! We sat down (in our respective home offices) and had a chat to The Warehouse Group National Loss Prevention Manager, Kerryn Steel - about life with Auror, some successes she's seen so far and what’s coming up next for the group!
We chatted to Miles Mangos, Store Manager at New World Halswell about how they worked with the Police Eagle helicopter team to stop a repeat offender on a two-month crime spree. This is a great example of how retail crime intelligence can empower your store teams to prevent serious crime!
We’re excited to introduce the newest addition to the Auror team, Sian! She has joined us as a Senior Customer Success Specialist in Melbourne, Australia. You’ll see her working closely with our Australian retail and law enforcement partners to help build out the community of crime fighters, to help them to report, solve and prevent more crime than ever.
We chatted to Nathan Breed from Briscoes Group about how he built a prevention first culture across the group, how it continues to drive his losses down and how you can employ the same strategies in your store.
Z Energy had a $2 million problem on its hands – drive-offs were impacting its bottom line and put staff and customer safety at risk.For a company that prides itself on customer service and views staff safety as a core value, something needed to be done.
Reece Lewis has always been a bit of a crimefighter. He’s owned andoperated the Caltex petrol station in Lower Hutt since 2005, and aslong as he can remember drive-off fuel thefts and theft have alwaysbeen a source of frustration.
Briscoe Group includes the popular Briscoes Homewares, Rebel Sport, and Living & Giving stores with more than 85 locations across New Zealand. With a recognised name and national footprint, Briscoe Group is always looking to protect its brand and profits with a proactive approach to stopping crime.
Mitre10 MEGA Westgate is one of the fastest growing hardware stores across the Mitre10 network, increasing its customer count by 20 percent year on year. With that rapid increase in numbers, it needed to ensure that shoplifting stats weren’t growing as well.
We asked a group of opinion leaders for their view on challenges facing Loss Prevention professionals, the importance of working with the Police, and whether retailers are competitors when it comes to fighting crime.
