BJ's Wholesale Launches MICROS XBR Ingenium

Latest innovation from industry-leading loss prevention exception reporting

MICROS-Retail, a division of MICROS Systems, Inc., and leading provider of retail technology for the specialty and general merchandise retail industry, recently announced BJ’s Wholesale’s successful launch of MICROS-Retail’s next generation loss prevention and business analytics solution, XBR Ingenium (XBR).

As an existing user of MICROS-Retail’s XBR, BJ’s launched a pilot of XBR Ingenium, the latest loss prevention offering from the family of MICROS-Retail analytics products. After a successful pilot program, BJ’s is now deploying MICROS-Retail XBR Ingenium company-wide, seeking to increase the investigative capabilities and productivity of its asset protection team.

MICROS-Retail XBR Ingenium provides more flexible and behavioral exception reports, allowing organizations to focus on the key areas of fraudulent activity. With an interactive dashboard, field users can quickly spot high-risk areas in their stores and districts.  Interactive functionality, such as pivoting, drilling and linking, provides power users with ultimate flexibility and endless analytical capabilities. Additionally, MICROS-Retail XBR Ingenium is highly intuitive and easy to use, allowing all users to quickly learn the solution and identify fraudulent activity. This allows BJ’s asset protection team to be more proactive and efficient in identifying, tracking and resolving issues.

“Through the assistance of the MICROS team, we have implemented a tool that is analyst, end-user and administrator friendly. I am confident this will drive higher case identification and provide a strong ROI in short order,” stated Charles Delgado, Vice President of Asset Protection at BJ’s Wholesale.

Raoul Ricard, Vice President of Development at MICROS-Retail, stated; “In addition to focusing on the new technology, BJ’s also focused closely on the users’ acceptance of the software and increased case productivity. These were key to the successful rollout. MICROS-Retail is committed to product development and innovation, with a focus on developing solutions to help our customers reduce costs and capture top line revenues.”
