Why Factal had to attend the RILA Retail Asset Protection Conference

Are you prepared for an ORC invasion?

When there’s a smash-and-grab down the street, do you know about it? Most retailers don’t report events like these to police, a recent National Retail Foundation assessment found. With organized retail crime on the rise, how do asset protection professionals know where to prepare for the next strike?

Helping solve this intelligence gap is part of why Factal will be at RILA’s Asset Protection conference 2023, April 30 – May 3 in Aurora, Colorado.

Teams across the org chart at many retailers rely on Factal’s risk intelligence. A GSOC might be using Factal on the web, while a resilience team integrates Factal’s data into ArcGIS and a travel safety team uses Vismo.

Asset protectors need risk intelligence, too. That’s where Factal’s mobile app comes in. It’s a two-way system, with hyperlocal Factal alerts notifying protection pros when news happens near them, and an anonymous tipping system that reports an incident directly to Factal editors.  Back at their desks, AP professionals can analyze historical trend data to help plan for upgrades when it comes to budget and planning time.

Collaboration across organizational teams is amplified when these teams are using similar tool sets. Most Factal membership plans bill by the organization, helping your business cut costs and collaborate with the same foundational data.

What do asset protection teams gain with Factal?

Incidents on Factal are verified and geolocated in real time by an experienced editorial staff that is focused on providing safety and security intel. That means you don’t waste time assessing the reality of an event or if it’s just some spoof gone viral in the ever-changing world of social media.

Over the past year, Factal has increased the volume of detailed, hyperlocal coverage by 125%. With precise geolocation and filters, our system doesn’t force you to sift through noise like other intel systems, which can overwhelm analysts and operators. You want your people acting on knowns, not assessing the unknown.

Whichever screens you use will be able to notify you of an incident. Factal has partner integrations, web notifications, email alerts and our app available. Pick what works best for you, not us.

A Factal trial is free. Factal membership includes unlimited asset uploads with precise geolocation. Our member success team can set up sophisticated alerting. If one member needs to track thousands of store locations and another just needs alerts about headquarters, Factal can provide both with ease. 

Find Factal at Booth 331 (back left corner of the RILA AP exhibitor hall) to see how we monitor events globally live. Book time with Mike and Ryan. They can set you up with a free trial by the end of the week, helping you save the business money and your people time.
