Protection 1 is a national leader when it comes to delivering retail business security that does more for you. We have built solid relationships with our retail clients by delivering an exceptionally high level of customer service. We know that each year almost $40 billion worth of merchandise is stolen, and understand how organized retail crime, shoplifting and internal theft can dramatically impact your bottom line.
Operating with razor-thin margins and tight security budgets, today’s retailers are faced with a long list of issues that center around loss prevention and inventory control. Customer and employee safety are always a concern, as well as protection against fire, hold-ups, burglary and unauthorized access to stock. Fraudulent slip and fall claims, shrinkage, gift card fraud and sweethearting can have a huge impact on resources and profits.
We have a breadth and depth of experience and can serve needs that range from burglary protection and fire monitoring to access control and state-of-the-art event triggered video solutions. Our goal is to help you maximize ROI for your loss prevention programs by leveraging your current legacy equipment while quickly incorporating new integrated solutions.
Customer Service Drives Us
Our focus on employee training enables us to consistently deliver a great customer experience. We received our industry’s highest honor, 2012 SDM Dealer of the Year, for “unmistakable success, innovation, use of industry best practices, and notable growth and accomplishments.” Protection 1 is growing because we take care of our retail customers—and, as you know, in this industry word gets around fast!
Event-triggered video solutions have become the cornerstone of retail security efforts. Video helps to ensure employee compliance with your operating procedures while guarding against theft and inventory shrinkage. Video plays an important role in monitoring customer service delivery levels and can take your employee training to a higher level. New IP technology can provide very high resolution images, which are critical in identification and apprehension of thieves and organized retail crime groups.
Intrusion Detection & Notification
Intrusion systems provide front line protection for retailers by sending alarm information to the Protection 1 UL Certified Central Station. We also provide additional features, like holdup buttons and environmental warning sensors for water damage or out of range temperatures.
Access control systems can serve as an effective method of deterrence at the individual retail store level. Our hosted access control options allow you to edit door and area permissions at all of your retail locations via any internet-connected computer on a 24/7 basis and eliminate the costs associated with re-keying. Access control can also be used to restrict employee/vendor access to critical areas such as stock rooms and cash offices and to help meet PCI compliance standards.
Fire and Life Safety
Fire detection systems are the backbone of a retail business security program, protecting inventory along with employees and customers. To stay in compliance, your system must be maintained and inspected on a regular basis. Dependable monitoring of the systems in your stores and on-time inspections are critical to reduce liability and promote public safety.
When it comes to delivering a high level of customer service, your phones play a key role. Protection 1 can upgrade your phone system to reduce the cost of your current phone bill. Through the power of the Internet, your retail operations can be connected by a single, integrated communications system.
