Retail Merchandise Loss Prevention App Using Transaction Services


Working with our customer, a large apparel and home product retailer, we developed a transaction-based Mobile App to conduct shortage audits that helped our customer make rapid decisions to reduce retail shortage loss. We developed the solution using MicroStrategy Transaction Services, MicroStrategy BI and Netezza. With this system we replaced our customer’s paper and Excel based process to capture store audit data with an iPhone based, transaction oriented, data collection system and automated reporting platform that can provide real time store audit reports.
