Losing an item means a retailer or supermarket must sell 50 more at the same price to make up the cost. Malay Kundu, Founder and CEO of StopLift, says his technology can ping you as the scan avoidance occurs.Read Source
Cashiers are “sweethearting” pumpkins and other items for their friends by not scanning them at the checkout. Malay Kundu of StopLift, whose surveillance technology detects sweethearting, says this theft costs retailers $14 billion annually.
The holidays are upon us which means fun, food, and shopping. A big item to buy at the supermarket is turkeys and a growing trend involves not buying them at all.
“Sweethearting” is when a cashier sneaks a turkey through the checkout for a shopper without actually scanning the item.
StopLift is a company implementing new technology to stop this illegal activity.
