Home Depot Taps Zebra Platform to Decrease Shrink
The Home Depot has selected Zebra Technologies Corp.'s Savanna Prescriptive Analytics solution to help prevent fraud by identifying opportunities within the retailer’s sales data, online or in-store. The solution includes a sales and exception-based reporting module from Profitect, which is now part of Zebra.
After extensively analyzing analytics vendors in the market, Home Depot selected the Zebra solution based on its ability to provide smart tasks, workflow for accountability, and greater insights into data. The retailer will leverage Savanna to process data from more than 2,000 of its stores in the U.S. and Canada.
“Our top deliverables in asset protection are to drive value for our customers and shareholders by reducing shrink and mitigating total retail loss,” said Scott Glenn, Home Depot's vice president of asset protection, in a media release from Zebra. “We recognized the need for an enterprise system that would drive these results. Zebra is providing us with unmatched functionality for our business needs.”
Additionally, Home Depot is currently using Zebra's Workforce Connect with TC70 touch computers to provide an instant connection for store associates, and to help foster a highly collaborative environment for responding to shopper needs and, ultimately, improving the shopping experience.
“In every conversation we’ve had with The Home Depot, it is evident [it] is committed to innovation that drives results,” said Guy Yehiav, Zebra vice president, in the release. “We are very proud The Home Depot selected us and our prescriptive analytics solution to achieve its business objectives.”
