    How Much Will You Save with Purchek® Pushout Theft Protection?

    Step 1: Merchandise Recovered

    Please start by entering the number of stores and the average number of carts per store. Next, enter the estimated number and value of pushout theft attempts per week.

    The frequency of pushout thefts tends to differ based on the type and location of stores, often surpassing the anticipated levels set by store management.

    Conservative default numbers have been prepopulated for these values. Adjust the numbers to see scenarios based on different assumptions.

    Step 2: Profitable Sales Required to Offset Loss Merchandise

    Select from the drop-down menu, the retail margin that best matches your stores. The calculator will now show the sales dollars you need to generate to offset the stolen goods. Remember that when merchandise is stolen, you don't only need to recover the margin lost from the stolen goods, but the value of the goods themselves.

    Step 3: Additional Savings Considerations

    In addition to the losses from the stolen merchandise, there are many other areas to consider when calculating your Return on Investment (ROI) for our Purchek® Solution. Additional areas of benefit to consider are explained here.
