Receipt Voids

Some cashiers will void an entire ticket after the transaction and pocket the money if someone pays with cash. KORONA retail loss prevention software system includes customizable features that require authentication.

Clipboard checklist icon

Item Voids

Prevent cashiers from voiding individual items, too. Even if you decide to allow voids, all actions will be recorded in each staff member’s shift report.

Cancelled receipt

Receipt Cancellation

Another common theft tactic is to erase a ticket prior to tender if the customer pays with cash. KORONA doesn’t allow the final item on the receipt to be erased, prompting a printed void receipt to document the action.

Force Drawer Closing

KORONA’s retail loss prevention software doesn’t allow any new actions if the drawer is open. This stops cashiers from operating with the drawer slightly ajar and accessible at all times.

Allowed Balance Difference

Set whatever level of balance difference you deem acceptable. If an employee is within that range, they won’t be asked to verify their balance again.

Settings and features

Balance Verification by Register or Cashier

Checking the balance of each cashier is ideal, but it doesn’t work for all businesses. If not, you can just run balance reports for each terminal instead.

There are many ways to minimize retail loss. Optimize your retail floor plan for visibility by keeping aisles short and your POS system near the exit. Add basic theft prevention devices like warning signage, mirrors, and sensors. Train your staff to look out for suspicious activities and keep employees stationed throughout the floor and near the doors. Retailers can also consult their point of sale for in-depth product and inventory reports. Perpetual counts in real-time mean that you have up-to-date information and shift reports can help identify worrisome activity from your employees. Retail loss prevention requires a holistic, thorough approach.

Retail loss prevention is the process of minimizing the loss of any products in your catalog. This includes loss of any kind, such as shoplifting, internal theft, spoilage, and supplier mistakes.

Use common best practices to protect your business. Try to allocate a portion of your budget to protection, potentially including security personnel, cameras, and anti-theft devices. Get a point of sale that can help you identify any problems. Real-time inventory updates, perpetual counts, in-depth KPIs, and employee shift reports can all help prevent loss. Finally, common sense and proper training will also help prevent theft or other forms of loss.

The most common causes are theft and spoilage. Retail theft still costs retailers tens of billions of dollars each year. And spoilage is nearly as bad. 40% of food in America, for instance, is lost to spoilage.
