SCG have been contemplating the idea of introducing robotics to the Australian market for quite some time. Given the unique advantages of implementing robotics for the provision of security services, coupled with SCG’s relentless quest to uncover the most optimal blend of labour and technology, it was inevitable that they would be the first to take the next big step into the future.
Retail loss costs us all. Through the increased cost of loss passed on to consumers, the productivity impact of identifying, reporting and restocking items which are no longer on show (supply chain and store), the inherent danger of confronting potential theft offenders through to the cost of implementing protective and proactive measures in reducing loss.
It is estimated that in Australia alone, theft costs the retail sector over $7.5 billion annually. In addition to just theft, retail fraud is estimated to cost over $100m annually. This works out to be on average approximately $450 out of every household pocket. That money would be much better off in your own pocket.
It can be a very daunting task selecting the right Security. Not only is it vitally important to protect your team, customers and physical assets, you also need to ensure that you are selecting a company which can partner with you to protect your brand reputation and image. No longer is it viable to select just the cheapest option as recent investigations have demonstrated the damage which can be caused to a company where their service partners do not comply with employment and security legislation.

That said, the social media security problem isn’t unique to Australia instead it affects people and businesses across the globe.
