Folsom, CA--August 29, 2011– Retail Pro International, LLC, a global leader in Point of Sale (POS), Store Operations, Merchandising, Planning, Business Intelligence, and Payment Processing software applications for the specialty retail industry, is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with HRVision Ltd., an innovative next generation employee assessment solutions provider. Headquartered in Israel, and known around the globe for their highly predictive tools in the field of employee assessment, HRVision will be complementing Retail Pro's current product suite with their highly accurate cost effective, retail recruiting solutions.
"Even though the economy started recovering last year", comments Mike Bishop, Vice President Business and Partner Development, Retail Pro International, LLC., “according to the NRF Global Retail Theft Barometer 2010 report, shrinkage actually rose in 2010. In fact, in the US, Canada, and Australia employee theft was estimated to be greater than shoplifting losses -- accounting for 35.3% of all shrinkage, or $37.8 billion. Bishop continued, "In the retail segment where loss prevention is crucial to financial viability, Retail Pro International, LLC. recognizes the need to offer our merchants and customers new recruiting technologies that can effectively address the 'integrity in the workplace' issue."
SavvyIntegrity is HRVision’s SaaS tool for the recruiting or loss-prevention division of an organization. It has high sensitivity to theft and fraud and lets recruiters identify potentially dishonest candidates before they become employees. Unlike existing assessment tools (i.e., interviews, references, pen and paper tests) that are not able to elicit precise scoring of integrity levels in the pre-screening process, or that are extremely invasive and can only be used post-event (i.e., polygraph, CCTV), SavvyIntegrity is a highly accurate and non-invasive tool to recognize persons with a propensity to invite losses and damage to organization by their nature and activities.
Utilizing proven and patented technology, the SavvyIntegrity system extends recruiters' ability to immediately identify the level of integrity of candidates. Based on sophisticated algorithmic scoring plus advanced response and tracking measurement, this non-biased, user-friendly testing solution enables the recruiter in overcoming the limits of human intelligence in discerning a lack of integrity on the part of candidates.
”Retail Pro has a history of proffering its customers and business partners products that solve real-world retail challenges, and represent the best-of-breed technology,” said Kerry Lemos, CEO of Retail Pro International, “and, as comprehensive solution providers, we are pleased to partner with a company making new inroads in loss prevention technology.”
Ami Rosenblat, CEO HRVision adds, "Retail Pro customers can now choose to just as accurately screen their potential candidates without the cost and complexity associated with lengthy intensive screening. The 20 minute web based test can be a game changer for retailers, who are hard pressed to stem the critical losses incurred by dishonest employees. "
