The ROI of Face Recognition for Retail

Despite the best efforts of loss prevention executives, retail crime is on an upward trajectory. According to The D&D Daily, retail crime is

up at least 14% from this time last year. It’s never been clearer that the same old loss prevention tactics just aren’t enough.

Some of the boldest retail LP teams have started using facial recognition to prevent crime, and the results are astonishing. The typical results of using facial recognition? As much as a 34% reduction in external shrink (for a Big Box retailer, that could be tens of millions of dollars per store!). It’s no wonder that The D&D Daily’s Publisher and Editor Gus Downing declared that face recognition is “on an inevitable path to retail adoption.”
