Estimates suggest that close to half of all retail dollars lost to shrink are attributable to internal fraud. Protection against loss means detection. Any serious effort to combat loss must involve comprehensive POS data analysis (data mining) to identify unauthorized discounts, invalid returns, and cash shortages.

Epicor Retail Loss Prevention streamlines and accelerates the entire loss prevention, detection and case management process. This exception-based analysis tool uses a central database of transactions provided by Sales Audit to automatically detect patterns of fraudulent activity. It is designed to enable faster fraud identification, better case management, improved investigator productivity, greater staff awareness, and higher profitability across the chain. Key features include an event dashboard, 80+ KPIs to help retailers establish exception rules, case management, scoring schemas to weight different types of events, store groups, and extensive Web-enabled standard reporting as well as ad hoc reporting.

The Epicor Retail Sales Audit solution ensures the integrity and accuracy of head office information systems that rely on transactional data. Sales Audit receives all transaction data in a central repository, treats it to a consistent and robust set of business rules, and then quickly feeds all validated data directly to the head office systems that require it.

Epicor provides advanced solutions for retailers seeking to streamline processes, integrate channels, leverage intelligence and inspire customers, to maximize profitability. The Epicor Retail end-to-end suite is designed to meet the evolving merchandise and service expectations of today's connected, cross-channel shoppers, and the business requirements of the most demanding softgoods, hardgoods and specialty retail environments in a variety of industries including apparel, footwear, discount, general merchandise, automotive aftermarket, lumber and building materials, nursery, and pharmacy.
