The Apple iPad has changed the way we interact with technology and access Facebook, emails and the Internet. The man and machine experience translates to a positive interaction through a sliver of hardware, providing exceptional battery performance along with a stable and intuitive user interface. The iPad 3 and iPad Mini currently set the bar as the go-to devices in the realm of Tablets, and with high customer demand comes high risk of theft. Shoplifting of expensive consumer electronics such as the Apple iPad is a growing issue and loss prevention systems are required to hold these tablets in place, while on display in retail stores. RTF offers many hardware and software display security solutions to ensure a high level of customer interaction while protecting the iPad from shoplifting. The first solution is Boomerang3, a simple and cost effective approach to keep the iPad on display and straight. This clean and attractive system is easy to use and quickly connects and disconnects for carefree merchandising. The next solution, Vise3, offers a universal, mechanical approach in which the iPad tablet is held by a series of reinforced locking claws. To add an electronic merchandise alarm, select Vise3+, RTF's latest alarm and charging platform. RTF's most recent solution, SmartCircle, introduced in March of 2013, can be downloaded to Apple iOS and run on iPhone, iPad and iPod. This security software protects the iPad from unauthorized removal and reports back to an Android Manager the status of battery levels along with numerous other statistics.

SmartCircle is different from any loss prevention approach in the anti-shoplifting marketplace today. Smartphone theft and Tablet loss, such as the iPad 3, is a growing problem in retail stores and shops around the world.
As thieves become smarter so do the merchandise security control measures put in place to stop theft of expensive consumer electronics such as the Samsung SIII and the Apple iPhone 5.
RTF has added another level of security, incorporating the brain of the Smartphone, creating a retail, in-store theft prevention system that locks the device after attempted theft; the Smartphone or Tablet sends emails with images attached and geo-locates the cell phone.
In armed mode, access to areas such as Google Play and Settings are locked, ensuring the displayed Smartphone is not compromised and inappropriate or offensive material is not downloaded onto the Tablet or Smartphone merchandise.
SmartCircle Manager monitors the activity of all devices added to the Circle and information freely flows between Apple iOS and Android Jelly Bean. This cross platform operating system easily allows the displayed iPad Mini to be merchandised beside the Galaxy Note, wherein both communicate with one another increasing the strength of the Circle.
Simply download SmartCircle from Google Play, App Store, or iTunes - install, connect to the SmartCircle network, and the Smartphone or Tablet is secured, monitored and a lite media player element is incorporated to attract and engage the customer.
On March 12, 2013 RTF shared a remarkable software solution that one day will render retail store system hardware obsolete.
Similar to the iPhone launch in 2007, Steve Jobs foretold the future and felt restricted by the hardware buttons of the
Steve commented… “It doesn't work because
the buttons and controls can’t change”.
Apple launched the first revolutionary Smartphone interface that allowed future innovation and ideas to freely flow in through the
hardware and software making up the successful DNA of iPhone today.
During the Athens launch Bill Dandie commented on Steve's Jobs vision, "SmartCircle will follow the same path,
the store's system hardware will only slow down our collective vision
for the perfect retail environment".
Bill continues, "What
will change today? First life becomes simpler, the future is more friendly, retailers will experience substantial cost
savings and in the end we will do the environment a huge favor. Also, in the past wireless retailer such as Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Wind and Vodafone spotlighted Tablets and Smartphones to move the customer to
a purchase, that doesn't change. The monumental shift introduced here,
today - the devices now run vital store systems too."
Greece shared "Day One" with us, the Western world. Many thousands of years ago ancient Greece molded our democratic, educational, philosophical and athletic framework without following a leader, they started from a blank page and wrote history.
RTF shared "day One" with Greece to show appreciation and respect for laying the ground work of modern civilization. SmartCircle technology and methodology will have a significant impact on the world and illustrate how shared hardware can be leveraged to reduce costs, the retail carbon footprint and remove unnecessary hardware.
