Discussed in this podcast is the eighth annual Organized Retail Crime (ORC) Survey conducted by the National Retail Federation, which revealed that an overwhelming number of retailers have fallen victim to theft in the past year. Of the 125 retailers who participated in the survey, 96 percent reported having experienced theft within the last 12 months. In spite of the uptick in thievery, however, there are a number of technological and customer service related tactics which can aid retailers in preventing crime and maintaining a safe business. Retailers can employ tactics such as those mentioned in this podcast by Andrew Wren, CEO of Wren Solutions, to lessen their vulnerability and begin to put an end to this source of loss.
