Five Below's unprecedented growth led them to create their first Asset Protection department to drive in-store operational efficiencies and performance. They searched for a tool that not only would meet the needs of Asset Protection efforts but would serve other business partners within the organization. Five Below selected 20/20 Retail from Agilence to identify areas of operational improvement and to investigate fraud in store locations. Five Below Regional Managers and District Managers monitor actions of the top performers and potential offenders in each of their 44 districts via personalized dashboards.
"Five Below has been growing fast. Our new Asset Protection department provides our field teams with the information needed to manage and optimize in-store operations, freeing us up to focus on corporate growth initiatives," said Gregg Smith, Senior Director of Asset Protection, Five Below. "We are honored that our team has been recognized for our efforts to turn operational insights into efficiencies."
"Five Below built an asset protection department from the ground up in a fast growing company, recognized the need for tools to accelerate their efforts and then took action," said Russ Hawkins, President & CEO, Agilence, Inc. "We are delighted that the Five Below team has been recognized for their in-store operational achievements."
