SOLUTIONS SHOWCASE PROTOS SECURITY Are Security Guards Disrupting Your Holiday Season? Protos Security Can Handle the Holiday Rush! T he holiday season is a wonderful time of year for many, but for loss prevention officials, there is no rest. No other time of the year is more professionally critical than the period between November 1 and December 31 each year. According to the National Retail Federation, the all-important, two-month holiday shopping season can represent as much as 30 percent of annual sales. As seasonal shopping increases, thefts of every kind are on the rise. However, a variety of new industry tools are helping LP officers take back the holiday season and spend more time with their families. With more sophisticated industry partners and vastly expanded technical capabilities, companies like Protos Security are showcasing the real value of their innovations to the entire LP industry. "Our central AP team works hard every year to source quality guard coverage for the Thanksgiving and Black Friday holiday rush. In years prior, this process was extremely labor intensive and involved sourcing and contracting with multiple companies, only to be left without coverage when those companies were unable to fulfill our request or sent unprofessional, untrained guards," one national LP operations director said. Protos continues to offer dispatch support twenty-four hours per day, 365 days per year. Their always-on, call-center teams take pride in standing ready to process emergency calls, fill last-minute security needs, and provide incident reporting around the clock. 67 LP MAGAZINE | NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2018
