Retail Risk Award Recognizes Thruvision’s People Screening Technology as Most Exciting New Solution For Global Loss Prevention Industry

ASHBURN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2018 / Thruvision, the leading provider of next-generation people-screening solutions for loss prevention and other applications, today announced that it won “Best Newcomer” at the prestigious Retail Risk 2018 Fraud Awards. The award, presented at the Retail Risk Annual Awards Dinner in Leicester, United Kingdom, recognizes Thruvision’s immediate impact in helping reduce losses at leading branded goods providers, retailers and distribution companies like Sony, Next and Hermes.

Thruvision’s people-screening solution uses patented passive terahertz imaging technology to address the growing need for safe, fast and effective detection of items hidden in clothing. Unlike metal detectors, which cannot detect non-metallic or low-metal content materials, Thruvision can detect any type of item and, unlike airport body scanners, Thruvision does not reveal anatomical details and it emits no energy or radiation. In real-world customer loss prevention environments, Thruvision detects concealed electronics, plastics, pharmaceuticals and other high-value items. Staff can be screened in under 10 seconds per person with no need for physical search.

“This year was by far the most hotly contested Fraud Awards ever. To even make the final shortlist was an achievement,” said Paul Bessant, managing director of Retail Knowledge, the Fraud Awards organizer. “Special congratulations go to all of the winners for being awarded one of the highest accolades our industry has to bestow.”

“We see this prestigious award as validation of our belief that Thruvision’s technology has the potential to revolutionize the loss prevention industry,” said Ian Lindsay, Thruvision’s finance director. “Our technology enables fast, safe and effective screening of staff as they leave work, simultaneously improving employee relations and enhancing security effectiveness.”
