When cashiers give away merchandise to a customer (friend, family, fellow employee) by the fake scan of merchandise by the cashier, the cashier is “sweethearting”. This is the most common form of employee theft, and ScanItAll™ is the first ever solution able to detect it.
ScanItAll™ alerts store management the very first time a cashier produces a loss, rather than months or even years down the road, significantly reducing inventory shrinkage, deterring future theft, and boosting profitability.
Self-Checkout Loss Detection
Retailers put in self-checkouts to reduce labor costs, but in the process also create a significant exposure from an inventory shrinkage perspective. StopLift has adapted its groundbreaking video analytics for cashier checkouts to be applied to self-checkouts as well. StopLift’s video analytics proactively monitor the self-checkouts to detect the various forms of theft specific to self-checkouts and alert store personnel accordingly.
Basket-Based Loss Detection
Items left in a customer’s cart are often overlooked by the cashier. This type of shrink can be hard on a store’s margins, since a single basket-based loss is often a large and costly item. For a grocery or retail chain, a single loss per day per store can drive thousands of dollars of loss.
Without the need of any additional infrastructure, ScanItAll uses existing overhead cameras to immediately detect unscanned items left anywhere in the cart, whether Bottom-of-Basket (BOB), Middle-of-Basket (MOB) or Top-of-Basket (TOB).

I’ve had managers and franchise owners tell me they had to fire cashiers who have been employed 8-10 years, and were considered to be family and friends, who were caught stealing “only” because of the StopLift system.

This type of theft has been costing the retail industry about $13 billion a year and, before StopLift technology became available, there had been no way to detect it.
