Another day another shoplifting incident this time we lost a case of high-end whiskey. Unfortunately cameras don’t help unless you are constantly viewing them; there had to be a better answer to liquor bottle security. When shoplifters are successful they boast of their achievements to their friends and they come after your business like sharks that smell blood in the water. Bottle security had become a priority almost over night.
When business started picking up and foot traffic increased the ability to monitor the store became dramatically limited. Unless you see a shoplifting incident from beginning to end then apprehending them is out of the question since falsely accusing a person of theft can result in a costly lawsuit.
A company called Alpha security actually came up with a workable solution to the liquor bottle security problem called the EASy Bottle lock. The EASY Bottle lock is a lean and strong alarmed bottle lock that secures your product from theft. The bottle locks slide over the cap or cork of the bottles and secure tightly and can only be removed with an EASy Bottle detacher kept at the point of sale. If a person attempts to defeat the bottle lock an alarm will sound. If that same thief attempts to further defeat the bottle lock then the product will become inconsumable. Another benefit to this type of bottle security is the fact that these alarms will sound at the EAS pedestal if a shoplifter attempts to remove a tagged bottle from the store.
The Alpha security system really gave us a chance to hone in on sales as opposed to trying to find ways to keep thieves from stealing merchandise. There were also added bonuses to using the bottle security tags, easy storage and eye catching marketing for merchandise. The purchase and implementation of the Alpha security bottle security system was a huge boon for our business. Though it did take time to properly train the staff on how to install and remove bottle locks, audit tagging compliance and react properly to bottle lock alarms, that initial investment of time made for a smooth implementation process. The moral of the store has gone up substantially since now we focus on customer service, sales and marketing instead of always worrying about liquor bottle security. In fact the system has become seamless part of the business as if the bottle locks have always been a part of our business.
