We’re a team of loss prevention experts who aim to help retailers protect their businesses from organized retail theft and deter shoplifters.

While some retailers need a custom solution to deter shoplifters, we’ve found several organized retail theft options that could solve your current situation.
ORC Groups Aren’t Your Run-of-the-Mill Shoplifters
Unlike normal shoplifters who steal items for personal use, ORC groups are different. They make it their job to steal from retailers and then quickly resell the stolen items. This means traditional loss prevention methods such as signage, cameras, or security guards aren’t enough to deter ORC groups.
The most effective way to deter these criminals is to learn more about them. But instead of investing valuable time in learning about these groups, allow PPS to do the legwork for you!
You Don’t Need the Luck of the Irish – PPS is Here for You
“Last year when we saw a repeat concern for stronger loss prevention devices that can combat organized retail crime, our team went to work. We searched for devices that could meet retailers’ needs and had a proven success rate. That’s when we learned about IMCo Solutions. After we saw the potential their loss prevention devices could have on American retail businesses, we couldn’t wait to share it with the industry,” said Tim Gates, SVP of Business Development.
Effective Organized Retail Theft Options with a Proven ROI
When we add a product to our listing, we ensure it can help retailers combat shoplifters. And we recently added four of IMCo Solutions’ loss prevention devices to our lineup for retailers because of their incredible use of sound deterrents.
Why IMCo Solutions?
After interviewing a variety of shoplifters to learn more about the motivation behind their methods, the IMCo team discovered the power of sound. During their research, they learned that shoplifters would avoid most situations that draw attention to themselves. So, the IMCo team designed several devices that release a beep whenever someone removes a product from the shelf or hook. The purpose of the beep is when potential shoplifters would notice the sound, they will leave the store and choose a new target. And this small addition became a game-changer for retailers.
