Frank Hammerle, Finance Director of METRO Cash & Carry Romania, stated, "The continuous reduction of shrinkage is of big importance for us in order to allow us to offer our most competitive prices to our professional customers. The introduction of the Profitect solution provided a strong impact in the reduction of our shrinkage by more than 20% in one year."

"We are very pleased with the results we achieved with Profitect. In the first two years of implementation we were able to reduce shrink and damage by 23%, sustain the achievement and increase profits. Profitect's power tools and modular approach, backed by outstanding support, training and coaching services, allowed us to increase the productivity of our profit protection teams, both at the headquarters and store operations," said Dror Moran, CFO of Blue Square.

The retail climate has changed and CFOs need to shift their approach from tactical to strategic, taking a broader role in technology innovation to drive company margin growth.
