Retailers Report Mixed Performance In Stores And Online

“The State Of Retailing Online” is an annual survey conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF). The survey examines retailer and digital business professional attitudes and focus areas for critical digital commerce issues. Some notable additions to this year’s survey are several questions related to
omnichannel fulfillment and personalization. We conducted the survey for the 2019 study in Q4 2018 and received 69 complete and partial responses from retailers. Respondents in this annual survey were (see Figure 1):

› › Split between pure plays and store-based merchants. Fifty-five percent of survey respondents were employees of traditional brick-and-mortar retailers with web divisions or branded manufacturers with largely wholesale businesses. Another 45% were pure plays or online retailers.

› › Large retailers. Most of the survey respondents were employees of relatively large retail companies. Sixty six percent of respondents were at companies that generate more than $500 million in revenue annually, and 43% of the respondents’ companies make over $1 billion in revenue.

› › Senior executives with marketing or eCommerce. Fifty-nine percent of respondents were at the VP level or above in their organization. Another 23% described themselves as C-suite leaders. Additionally, 48% of respondents were part of their company’s eCommerce or marketing teams (see Figure 2).

Nice story on facial and recognition and how Fraud-IQ is helping retail in loss prevention.

Excerpt:

Merchandise returns cost retailers in the United States more than $350 million in sales last year, including up to $22.8 billion attributed directly to fraudulent returns and abuse, estimates data analytics firm Appriss.

“Fraud is such a big number in retail, one that largely goes unchecked,” says Peter Trepp, CEO of FaceFirst, a software firm that provides a security face recognition platform for use in industries including retail, air transportation, casinos, sports and event venues. The company recently unveiled Fraud-IQ, which it calls the first facial recognition product built specifically for use against retail return fraud.

“It’s hard to find tools to combat fraud,” Trepp says. “Part of this is because criminals have become so sophisticated. We think [facial recognition] is a contribution to battle this.”

The new Fraud-IQ works in two ways to assist retailers. “First, it can identify people entering the store without a package and then showing up at the return counter with goods to return,” Trepp says, “and the second works against repeat offenders.”
