WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - April 06, 2017) - Profitect Inc., the leading prescriptive analytics provider for the retail industry, today announced that CEO Guy Yehiav and Vice President of Industry Solutions, Kelli Woelfel, will be speaking at the 2017 RILA Retail Asset Protection Conference, April 9 - 12, 2017, held at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.
Profitect will share insights on how advanced data analytics solutions and, in particular, prescriptive analytics, can help retailers improve profitability by helping them better understand their data to take decisive actions. Profitect executives will address asset protection issues pertaining to loss, employee theft, shrink, fraud, and the techniques that allow retailers to increase sales and glean insights into their point of sale systems.
"It's a great honor to be joined on stage by one of our customers to discuss the issues in asset protection that matter most," said Guy Yehiav, CEO of Profitect. "In today's complex retail environment of doing more with less, retailers not only need to track and analyze existing data, but also understand how to drive actionable insights automatically from prescriptive analytics. We're looking forward to engaging with attendees at this year's RILA Asset Protection event to help global retailers move to a new standard in exception-based reporting, and embrace data-driven strategies that improve sales and profitability."
As the retail landscape continues to evolve, asset protection teams are constantly faced with the challenge of picking up on patterns that can easily be overlooked. Profitect's sessions at RILA's event will explore insights and share best practices for how prescriptive analytics enable retailers to uncover flaws in online returns, suspicious employees behaviors, and fraud.
