For retail jewelers, the holiday season offers tremendous opportunities – for business revenue and for thieves. Crowds, extra inventory, and more transactions create an open invitation for shoplifters and employee theft unless jewelers take special precautions, warns Sid Kalantar, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Senseon Secure Access, in a recent article for The Retail Jeweler.

“During the holiday season, retail jewelers must be super-vigilant and take additional steps to minimize merchandise losses,” Kalantar said. “Beyond surveillance and alarms, they need to pay Scrooge-like attention to every piece of jewelry kept in a display case and shown to shoppers.” He added: “Most thefts involve jewelry being taken from showcases, which need better protection. The locking systems for cases and the way sales associates handle merchandise often create opportunities for criminals.”

To address this issue, Senseon Secure Access provides a keyless, hidden, electronic locking system ideal for jewelry display cases.
