This year’s U.S. Retail Fraud Survey 2015, sponsored by Volumatic, is launching at the inaugural Retail Fraud – New York show this Thursday, Sept. 24.
The survey is based on primary research into the systems, processes and strategies used by North America’s leading retailers. The Survey, which first debuted in 2013, provides a detailed picture of the evolving fraud challenge for retailers, in all its dimensions. In sponsoring this study, our purpose is to help take a collaborative stance against fraud.
The Retail Fraud Survey has become widely accepted as the definitive work on key issues surrounding retail risk and loss prevention, producing uniquely insightful and up-to-date analysis.
The Survey is important for the retail industry, as it shows what people are really doing in terms of systems used, strategies adopted and key benchmarks. It allows retailers to improve key business processes and practices, and inevitably improve their bottom lines.
“We are very pleased to continue our support for the U.S. Retail Fraud Survey,” said James Harris, commercial director at Volumatic. “The Survey really provides a detailed picture of the evolving fraud challenge for retailers, in all its dimensions. In light of recent events, there has never been a more important time for collaboration. Knowing the trends and keeping tuned-in to the current threats merchants are dealing with helps the entire industry stay ahead of the increasing hazards of fraud.”
An exclusive briefing session for participating retailers is being held at Retail Fraud – New York; the newest location to be added to the Retail Fraud event calendar, which takes place this week. The briefing will show participating retailers how they can best use the latest Survey information to fight loss and gain competitive advantage in their businesses. Retail Knowledge, who commissioned the Survey, is the organizer of the Retail Fraud conferences worldwide, promoting best practice and leadership in Retail Risk and Loss Prevention.
