Reducing Retail Shrink by 22% with Google Cloud and Sensormatic

Creating a “Smarter Exit” solution to surface key inventory and shrink insights to retailers

Leading globally in inventory intelligence, Sensormatic provides loss prevention hardware and software solutions to retailers. Their solutions make connections and bridge gaps across retail enterprises to deliver critical, real-time insights into inventory, shoppers, and more. 

RevUnit partnered with Sensormatic on a proof-of-concept (POC) for software that leverages existing hardware in retail stores for visibility around shrink and inventory availability. This project was built on data innovation, new product design/development, and data visualization.

“With Sensormatic’s expertise in loss prevention and RevUnit’s expertise in modern data tools, we will bring a best-in-class solution to retailers looking for a path to true inventory intelligence.”

Anthony Peralo, Sr. Business Development Manager, Sensormatic

The Challenge

Better inventory availability is on just about every retailer’s roadmap. But getting to true intelligence takes heavy investment in both hardware and software to track inventory accurately. With competitive pressures and the growing need to get valuable data to improve operations, retailers are stuck trying to figure out how to take the first steps towards this critical inventory objective.

The Solution

Sensormatic and RevUnit created visibility around a next generation “Smarter Exit” solution to surface key inventory and shrink insights to retailers. RevUnit built data infrastructure and designed an application powered by Google Cloud. By leveraging the data gathered by Sensormatic’s pedestals, the team had the ability to structure and model, then serve up inventory insights in an intuitive dashboard.
