Ardene’s Uses Connected Retail Tech to Support Store Expansion
Looking to grow and scale internationally, Canadian fast-fashion retailer, Ardene, partnered with Sensormatic Solutions to support its loss prevention strategy. The retailer is using connected devices and solutions to reduce loss, improve store operations and enhance the customer shopping experience in more than 375 of its stores, across Canada and the United States.
Through a wide range of Sensormatic solutions offering real-time insights, Ardene can tailor its loss prevention program to each store layout and need, said Angie Dalios, the retailer's director, loss prevention & security. “As Ardene continues to expand and open new store formats, we need adaptive options that provide effective merchandise protection and a frictionless shopper experience.”
Ardene’s partnership with Sensormatic Solutions began in 2015 when the retailer implemented Sensormatic anti-theft tags and its next-gen Synergy storefront detection systems. As the company continued to expand and store configurations changed, it needed to deploy the right technology and solution configuration across each location. Ardene implemented Sensormatic RFID Overhead EAS detection systems at some malls with large exits, and Sensormatic Synergy visible pedestal systems in the majority of its stores.
