ATLANTA, GA – August 6, 2012 – Wren Solutions, a leading loss prevention technology provider, today announced the immediate availability of Encapsulon Assessment version 3.3.3, its industry-leading retail audit software solution. The new version helps retailers to automate and optimize audit programs through enhanced mobility, improved reporting and greater intelligence; making it easier and faster for retail loss prevention and operations teams to identify and correct sources of loss.
Initially released in March of this year, Wren’s easy-to-use retail audit software enables loss prevention and store operations professionals to streamline and simplify the process of designing, conducting, and following up on audits. Flexible and readily adapted to virtually any environment, Encapsulon Assessment gives retailers the ability to verify compliance, measure consistency, compare performance, streamline operations and address organizational challenges, including the growing problem of shrink, a key focus of audits and a significant source of loss.
Highlights of Encapsulon Assessment 3.3.3 include:
• Enhanced Mobility: enables auditors to utilize the iPad camera to upload and attach pictures to audit questions while walking the store. The photo attachments can be viewed on an iPad as well as a desktop computer when audits are reviewed, and photo thumbnails can be included in completed audit reports.
• Greater Intelligence: Auditors can use the Location Search feature to quickly find stores by entering a partial location name or number, ensuring accurate information is recorded every time. A new Audit Visibility property enables administrators to assign users to specific audits, forms and report views, ensuring that users see only what they need and no more.
• Improved Reporting: When reviewing an Audit, users are now able to choose which Question Details (standards, comments, and attachments) are included in the completed audit report. Users can create distribution lists within Encapsulon Assessment and email completed audits and reports from the system, enabling immediate intelligence sharing, effective follow-up and swift remediation. There are now more graphical reports including a report for Store Performance by Location.
The enhancements signify Wren’s commitment to the retail loss prevention community as well as its ability to deliver solutions that are most valuable to the marketplace. “Wren Solutions continues to innovate with industry-leading solutions for loss prevention in retail,” said Mark Lummus, Vice President of R&D and Operations. “The new enhancements to Encapsulon Assessment, especially the iPad photo attachment app, provide retail loss prevention professionals with additional opportunities to optimize the audit process, prevent shrink and deliver value-adding reports to senior management.”
Updates will automatically push to current customers, with incremental deployment to Early Access Program (EAP) partners. To learn more about Wren Solutions and to view the full list of the features of Encapsulon Assessment 3.3.3, visit www.wrensolutions.com.
