Mothercare pilots automated security audit system
Mothercare, the UK's leading retailer of baby equipment, clothing and toys, has installed a pilot of the new SecureSeal Logger system on its trailer fleet.
This wireless, self-powered device enhances the functionality of the industry standard SecureSeal Data reusable seal used on each trailer door to provide an automated audit trail of security sealing to Mothercare's loss prevention team.
Data from the Logger is collected automatically via the drive-by Receiver Hub, normally sited at the gatehouse, and an Internet portal provides a full audit trail for every trailer as well as a suite of proactive loss prevention exception reports.
"The SecureSeal Logger system is unique as it uses drive-by RF technology to automatically capture all trailer seal activity from every journey," commented Cameron Grant, Managing Director, SecureSeal Systems Ltd. "Access to seamless security information and proactive exception reports will enhance the ability of Mothercare's loss prevention team to reduce shrinkage across the supply chain."
The Logger can collect information from the security seal or the door switch using the range of SecureSeal Systems sensors. SecureSeal Data trailer seals are robust, cost-effective, permanent, and reusable with a unique random security number generator that indicates unauthorised door openings.
Deployed as stand-alone units with optional connections to the SecureSeal Logger for audit trails or connected to standard vehicle monitoring systems (VMS), they are in daily use on over 50,000 vehicles globally, including many leading retail and supermarket fleets across the UK and Europe.
