Pushout Prevention

Push back against pushout theft with Purchek®

Pushout theft is the technique of choice for Organized Retail Crime ("ORC") rings and everyday thieves as carts enable shoplifters to steal significantly more merchandise than could otherwise be discretely carried out of a store, while maintaining the appearance of an everyday shopper. This dynamic results in many pushout thefts going unnoticed by retailers. Gatekeeper Systems estimates that most pushout theft is never recorded, with multiple unnoticed smaller thefts for every major ORC pushout theft. No confrontation is necessary with Purchek®, ensuring your shoppers have a positive shopping experience.

Headquartered in Foothill Ranch, CA and with offices throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, Gatekeeper serves a growing customer base of both regional and global blue-chip retailers.

Gatekeeper Systems' products and services offer an attractive value proposition to retailers, with a typical payback period of twelve months or less.
