Gatekeeper Systems Introduces BasketKeeper™ Hand Basket Theft Prevention Solution

Hand Basket Loss No More – BasketKeeper Safely Protects Retailer’s Assets, One Basket at a Time

Irvine, CA, April 29, 2012 --( Gatekeeper Systems, The Leading Provider of Intelligent Cart Solutions, announces the debut of its latest retail loss prevention solution. The BasketKeeper™ hand basket theft prevention solution prevents shoplifters from stealing hand baskets and/or using the shopping baskets to steal unpaid merchandise.

The BasketKeeper solution is designed to work on the widest variety of retail store’s hand baskets and rolling baskets. BasketKeeper’s alarm module utilizing Gatekeeper’s RF Technology immediately draws attention to a hand basket theft event occurring by sounding an audible alarm signaling a theft is in progress. Would-be thieves startled by the alarming basket in hand, tend to quickly abandon the basket and flee the store, increasing employee safety by reducing the need for confrontation. The alarm module’s advanced integration capabilities also allow stores to integrate Gatekeeper’s BasketKeeper+™ solution to remote visual alarms and store’s video surveillance systems thus maximizing ease of loss prevention solution monitoring.

The concept for the BasketKeeper solution derived from one of Gatekeeper Systems’ customer’s needs for their national chain’s growing issue of basket and item loss at their stores. “We are excited to continue to help retailers with their loss prevention needs by introducing Gatekeeper’s first solution aimed specifically at hand basket theft and loss,” said Karryn Lurock, Gatekeeper Systems’ International Marketing and Communications Director. “It has been a natural extension to our existing loss prevention product line and we are extremely pleased with the customer feedback and performance in the stores thus far.”
