Bentonville, AR: Swagtron, a leader in electric rideables, recently partnered with Digital Safety (DiSa) to equip its new Swagtron Classic hoverboards with DiSa’s Single-Scan Serialization (3S) to combat retail theft and return fraud. If stolen, the new Swagtron Classic hoverboards have complete protection against return fraud (a common method in organized retail crime), negating a major monetary benefit of shoplifting.

“We’re proud to work with DiSa to help protect not only our product, but our retail partners,” said Jason Wakefield, Swagtron CMO.

 

The Swagtron Classic hoverboard, a Walmart exclusive, features the legendary performance and value Swagtron is known for, including UL2272 certification, dual 200-watt motors, LED wheel lights and iOS/Android app connectivity.

 

The 3S Smart Barcode protection, implemented on the product and packaging during production, features individual item tracking and security unique to every item produced. During point of sale, the technology is used to track next level sales data, in turn making items never purchased easily identifiable as well.

Samsung is utilizing Smart Locks and Smart Barcodes on the newly released Galaxy Tab A 8.0”

Bentonville, AR: Samsung, last year, launched its state-of-the-art Galaxy Tab A 8.0” model. In addition to the newly designed premium look and feel, coupled with the widescreen display and long-lasting battery, the Tab A 8.0” is now fully equipped with the Digital Safety Smart Lock protection.

Smart Lock installation occurs during manufacturing, rendering the tablet non-functional until purchased by the consumer. If stolen, Tab A 8.0” remains locked and altogether useless to offenders. The 360-degree smart solution is paired with 3S Smart Barcodes, eliminating return fraud and providing individual item history and tracking capabilities.

Samsung is utilizing Smart Locks and Smart Barcodes on the Tab A 8.0” model to:

  • remove all benefits to shoplifters
  • fully reject present and future return fraud attempts.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0” is a technological advancement on multiple frontiers but now taking that even further with the installment of Digital Safety asset protection.

Retailers Preparing for DiSa Smart Solutions Testing

On April 3, Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) hosted an educational Benefit Denial Summit at Target HQ, where top retailers including Walmart, Target, and Best Buy discussed key theft protective advantages of Benefit Denial and Point of Sale Activation AP/LP methods by using the Situational Crime Prevention model. While most AP/LP methods focus on increasing an offender’s theft Effort or increasing their perceived risk of being caught (Risk), Benefit Denial and point of sale activation or PoSA (a subcategory of Benefit Denial) work by reducing or eliminating the Reward for
would-be thieves.


This theft prevention method has key theoretical advantages, as it protects high-theft products throughout the supply chain, and extends protection to internal theft and package theft. Key LPRC research results and plans were discussed at the April summit, including two solutions in current LPRC testing engineered by Digital Safety or DiSA: PoSA Smart Lock, and 3S Smart Barcode.

PoSA Smart Lock removes the benefit of stealing by making any smart device non-functional until purchased, allowing for Open Selling. PoSA creates 24/7 product availability without theft deterrents, lengthens the sales window, and gains impulse purchases, increasing consumer sales +20%.


3S Smart Barcode effectively stops invalid returns, offers product visibility with real-time analytics from Product ID Live, and provides more accurate inventory calculations by rejecting invalid returns and giving more precise store and item sales and returns data.

LPRC Director Dr. Read Hayes, and Research Scientist Mike Giblin, will continue to support the senior level AP staff of retailers such as Target, Kroger, Best Buy, etc. as they become ready for proof-of-concept testing, solution analysis, and critical consumer/associate/online reseller awareness messaging research. The upcoming Digital Safety (DiSA) Smart Solutions proof-of-concept phase will focus on three key points: sales lift data, cost savings, and payroll reduction. Retailers will begin the 4 to 6 week POC in the upcoming weeks, followed by single store testing, POS
implementation, and complete on-boarding of the Smart Solutions.
