Having bottle security of any kind is the best defense against inventory losses. While shoplifters are always the first thought when it comes to how inventory shrink occurs, it is by far not the only way. In fact, it is easier and more common that vendors and employees will cause the biggest financial losses your liquor store will incur.
Bottle locks such as EASy Bottle (which is developed and sold by Alpha Security) are an effective deterrent against product sampling and shoplifting. If you know that those ways are only a portion of your losses, what else should your bottle security be protecting you against?
How about vendor fraud? One of the easiest ways a vendor can steal from you is by misstating the quantities of product they are delivering. This can happen by taking a real invoice, only shorting the actual shipment that is delivered to your store. If they leave a few cases of product on their deliver truck (and none of your employees verifies the physical received quantity) the vendor now has extra product on their truck.
You will be left with an unexplained inventory shortage and they have cases of merchandise they can do with as they please. It is easier than one might think to sell these on the black market to other businesses, friends, or online.
