Introducing BOB Defender

Use AI and smart-sensing technologies to reduce shrink and improve your store’s performance immediately…

A simple and affordable way to leverage the latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to reduce shrink at checkout

The average retailer loses up to $25k per store per year — due to undetected items on the bottom of the basket.  Ninety percent of these losses are due to the fact the cashier didn’t notice the items during checkout (the remaining are related to actual theft or sweet-hearting). BOB Defender stops bottom of the basket losses — in real-time — by identifying potential items and alerting cashiers to items below the cart.

BOB Defender is an AI-based system that enables your store and front-end managers to detect, resolve, and monitor BOB related incidences – lowering shrink and enabling better cashier training and management.
