» Lowest Cost
A major CE retailer in the United States saw a 95% reduction in R&M after implementing an MTI SmartTether solution, while a major U.S. wireless carrier saw a 90% reduction in R&M by switching to LP3
Product theft cost retailers approximately $119 billion in 2011, or 1.5% of all global sales. Installing proper security can significantly decrease this figure, as MTI clients quickly discover. Yet only MTI address all four challenges faced by retailers and brands as they seek to minimize the total cost of their merchandising systems: theft, R&M, durability and hidden expenses.
Where other companies talk about reducing theft, MTI actually does it. Using an MTI product, one major U.S. wireless carrier saw a 70% reduction in shrink, the result of our unique combination of electronic security with the industry’s first and only alarmed mechanical tether. Likewise, a major U.S. regional retailer implemented a large-scale deployment of MTI products and saw fewer than two dozen thefts in all of its stores combined – over the course of a decade.
Meanwhile, MTI’s merchandising technologies deliver the industry’s lowest repair and maintenance costs, up to six times lower than the competition. A major CE retailer in the United States saw a 95% reduction in R&M after implementing an MTI SmartTether solution, while a major U.S. wireless carrier saw a 90% reduction in R&M by switching to LP3.
These savings are possible due to patented design elements and an extensive testing process that ensures our top-mount and inline products are durable enough to thrive in the busiest retail environments. Tests have shown competitors’ products can handle only a fraction of the use MTI’s systems handle on a regular basis, be it due to our patented anti-kink swivels that reduce system wear or our proprietary CarbonTethers that have 10x greater cut resistance than the competition. These elements make MTI’s merchandising security the most durable and reliable in the industry, with little to no downtime or costs for system repair.
Our products’ modularity further reduces long-term costs, often delivering exponential savings compared to a POD system after just four months. Custom brackets and SmartFit Kits also minimize your cost of ownership by extending the life of a display to support new products. Yet perhaps most important is the modularity of our inline alarm systems, which can be linked for large-scale rollouts and potentially save retailers millions of dollars over time.
» Highest Reliability
Our proprietary CarbonTethers have 10x greater cut resistance than the competition, our patented SmartTethers have less than a 1% return rate, and our patented swivels have never broken. Meanwhile, our electronic security helped one major U.S. wireless carrier reduce its false alarms by 95%
MTI’s mechanical security does not fail. Our proprietary CarbonTethers have 10x greater cut resistance than the competition, our patented SmartTethers have less than a 1% return rate, and our patented swivels have never broken. Meanwhile, our electronic security helped one major U.S. wireless carrier reduce its false alarms by 95%, restoring the sales team’s faith in audible alerts. By combining these industry-leading elements, MTI delivers the most reliable merchandising systems available.
Electronic security alone is prone to “grip and rip” theft, while mechanical security alone doesn’t deter tampering. Security you can count on only comes from systems that integrate mechanical and electronic elements. MTI’s products do just that – while also providing power for a live device. This unique combination lets retailers and brands rest assured that their products are powered, secured and ready for interaction from a display that repeats its launch-day performance for months on end.
Merchandising a live device in this way increases shopper engagement and the likelihood of purchase. MTI clients have reported a 25-30% lift in sales after deploying our innovative technologies. Reliable systems and increased sales are two value propositions our competitors simply cannot claim.
» Best Shopper Experience
Studies show that 47% of a purchase decision is based on hands-on interaction. MTI’s technologies uniquely address shoppers’ need for engagement with retailers’ demand for security, helping clients realize a 25-30% lift in sales after deploying an MTI system. Our top-mount and inline products also make countertop clutter a thing of the past, and they have reduced clients’ false alarms by 95%. As a result, MTI’s technologies have dramatically improved the retail experience for shoppers and salespeople alike, delivering greater engagement, longer interaction and ultimately improving sales while minimizing returns. The best shopper experience is clearly the most profitable. Only MTI helps you deliver it.
Our spirit of innovation has made MTI an industry leader, and it drives our design and engineering teams with every new product we develop.
Innovation is at the heart of everything we do, as it has been for 35 years. Our merchandising technology wouldn’t reduce theft by 70% and false alarms by 95% unless it offered something unique. MTI was the first company to combine mechanical and electronic security with universal power. Our custom algorithms virtually eliminate false alarms. Our patented swivels deliver the industry’s lowest R&M. And our proprietary CarbonTether has 10x the cut resistance of the nearest competition, with a rip-out force so high that entire fixtures have been pulled from the ground before our system showed any signs of fatigue. At MTI, our goal is to bring the merchandising technologies of tomorrow into the retail environments of today. That spirit of innovation has made MTI an industry leader, and it drives our design and engineering teams with every new product we develop.
