USS fights retail crime with the Power of 4

Universal Surveillance Systems : 18 June, 2009  (New Product)
New electronic article surveillance system from USS Corporation introduces a serious platform for preventing losses through organized retail crime
In direct response to the growing threat of Organized Retail Crime (ORC), Universal Surveillance Systems (USS Corporation) announces the launch of the USS Power of 4 System, a one-of-a-kind system designed to specifically target ORC activity and combines four technologies in one platform. The ever-growing issue of ORC is costing retailers over $30 billion each year in losses, resulting in millions of dollars of lost sales tax revenue. In addition, ORC poses a threat to employee safety and consumer health.

The official unveiling of this unique, revolutionary system took place on the opening day of the National Retail Federation's (NRF) Loss Prevention Expo, June 15, 2009. A large crowd of loss prevention executives and top ORC investigators turned out for the unveiling presentation of the Power of 4 and witnessed as Joe LaRocca, Senior Asset Protection Advisor for the NRF, and Steve McClain, VP of Asset Protection for Sports Authority, "cut the ribbon" at the launch ceremony and Adel Sayegh, President & CEO of USS Corporation, shared his passion and commitment for giving back to the retail loss prevention community.

"USS Corporation is committed to fighting ORC alongside our retail partners. We have devoted significant R & D resources to developing the most innovative technology that will thwart ORC activity," explains Adel Sayegh. "We must stay one step ahead of these criminals and anticipate their next move. I believe the Power of 4 will give retailers more than just a fighting chance against this serious threat; it gives retailers an edge that did not exist previously." In addition to developing technology, USS Corporation actively supports ORC legislation and hosts ORC Conferences across the country to promote networking and partnerships between the private and public sectors.

Combining state of the art EAS technology with advanced early detection tools, the USS Power of 4 System is the first of its kind allowing retailers to target professional ORC criminals along with everyday shoplifters all in one system. This ground-breaking system gives retailers advance notification of ORC activity, allowing stores to be more proactive and help prevent heavy losses.

The Power of 4 system contains four different technologies designed to target four methods used by would-be thieves. It incorporates early detection of booster bags, a long favorite tool of ORC criminals, as well as advanced notification of magnetic detachers. It is also equipped with an anti-jamming circuit to render the latest ORC tool, EAS jamming devices, useless and alarms when an EAS jammer is detected. And finally, it incorporates advanced EAS technology, making the Power of 4 truly an all-in-one system giving retailers security and peace of mind.

"I appreciate the work USS Corporation has done for Organized Retail Crime detection and prevention. ORC is a serious issue that needs serious solutions! The negative impact of ORC is far reaching and goes beyond affecting just retailers. It's time to put all our energies into real solutions that will slow down these criminals, such as supporting ORC legislation and developing new technologies," says Frank Muscato, Organized Retail Crime Investigations Supervisor at Walgreens.
