Guest Bloggers to Include LP Veterans and Corporate Security Experts

ATLANTA , March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's economic environment, retailers are fighting to maintain revenues and profitability as both shoplifting and organized retail crime increase, striking a blow to retailers' bottom line. The retail experts at Wren have launched a new blog, LPXtra, designed to provide loss prevention professionals with a forum for discussion, helpful tips, the latest news, and innovative ideas.

A provider of enterprise-class video surveillance solutions since 1983, Wren has been working hand-in-hand with some of the world's leading retailers for more than 25 years. "We have spent a lot of time with retailers to better understand the challenges they face. This has not only helped us develop innovative hardware and software solutions, but has also allowed us to leverage our experiences to help customers achieve security goals, adopt proven best practices, and view solutions in new, innovative ways. We hope LPXtra will be an interesting, interactive forum for sharing what we have learned and discussing current trends and challenges retailers face," said Andrew Wren , president of Wren.

The LPXtra blog will be a place LP professionals can turn to for interesting insights, new angles, information and happenings that help retailers stay on the cutting-edge of the LP game. Now more than ever, every cent of loss prevented can help retailers in this battered economy.

Guest bloggers include Keith Aubele, with more than three decades of experience in loss prevention, law enforcement, retail and related fields at top retail organizations including Wal-Mart(R) Stores, Inc. and The Home Depot(R); and Jeff Floreno, corporate security expert with nearly thirty years of experience in both corporate and top-level government security with esteemed corporations including Georgia -Pacific, 3M and Northrop Grumman.
