As the loss prevention (LP) and asset protection (AP) industry continue to change, it’s essential to stay up-to-date with what’s going on. Whether you are the business owner, finance, operations, merchandising, or LP/AP professional, we can help find a solution that fits your goals and budget.
At Product Protection Solutions (PPS), we work with our clients to develop an LP solution to fit their needs and budget by using our holistic approach. An LP/AP holistic approach to PPS means providing support that looks at the whole business, not just one area.
The PPS holistic approach encompasses the whole company, think a 360-degree protection approach. Each security layer added throughout the company will increase its protection.
- Intelligent shelving and fixturing
- Open merchandising
- Securing shelf lock for open display
- Targeting Organized Retail Crime (ORC) groups
Additionally, you want to hit four target points when working on a 360-degree protection strategy for your company.
Target #1 – Store Exterior
Adding exterior store protection can provide valuable protection. Security tools can include a fixed camera on the store’s external surroundings and parking lot or a drone camera for 360-degree protection.
Target #2 – Store Entrance & Exit
Secure your store with visible or discreet security systems, which can include EAS, RFID as EAS, or inventory management systems.
Target #3 – Product and Aisle Protection
You want item-specific protection for your merchandise, including safers, alarm series, tags, and more. We provide retailers with the PPS product protection Keepsafe™ Safers series. These safers allow for open merchandising in your stores!
Then, suppose there are narrow aisles, out-of-sight areas, or high-value product sections (makeup, electronics, etc.). In that case, you want to have extra protection. You can keep a better watch in those areas with enhanced public view monitors (ePVMS), secured fixtures, and smart shelving.
Target #4 – Protect Against ORC and Shoplifters
Becoming and staying aware of high theft products can help to reduce retail shrinkage, especially from ORC groups. You can take advantage of available technologies on the market to help you prepare and prevent theft before it happens.
The PPS TotalLP app will keep you informed and up-to-date on shoplifting trends from the palm of your hand.
The TotalLP app will protect your products and profits with:
- Theft Solutions – Scan a product’s UPC and see immediate, item specific theft prevention solutions
- Recommended Products – Shop from the app to quickly source the recommended solutions in seconds
- Saving Time – Save time and money by accessing valuable information all through the TotalLP app.

Benefit Denial Advantages
Obtaining a full LP/AP technology suite can take time to implement, but benefit denial is an excellent start towards growing your LP protection. Benefit denial security devices will leave merchandise useless and destroyed if anyone attempts to remove it without the proper removal device.
A benefit denial strategy is to ensure the shoplifter receives no benefit from the stolen product. Benefit denial security methods include ink tags, ink pins, beverage security, security labels (which helps to fight ORC), etc.
A Little Can Go a Long Way
Benefit denial products work great on their own or can work together with EAS systems. If you’re looking at just getting started, this is a great option to integrate with your system when the time comes. A small investment can go a long way, and it’s a significant step in LP protection.

PPS in Action
A PPS client, a larger retailer, had a problem with their employees not understanding which merchandise required quad wraps. They were concerned because quad wraps were only being added to 3 out of the 5 products, resulting in low tagging compliance and reduced ROI for the retailer.
So, the retailer contacted PPS looking for a solution to ensure consistency and tagging compliance with the correct merchandise. The PPS team went to work and quickly found a solution to their problem. The solution was for PPS to brand the quad wraps with the manufacturer’s logo.
This simple and quick solution provided tremendous benefits to our clients. Including:
- Improved sales (since the product is secured and on open display)
- Tagging compliance
- An affordable solution
