About the DiSa PoSA Solution

The DiSa PoSA solution, the world's first fully digital asset protection solution, is a digital lock applied to consumer electronic products during manufacturing. Each device is assigned a unique activation code. The digital lock prevents theft by rendering the devices inoperable from the point-of-production to the point-of-sale at retail stores. The device remains locked until the legitimate buyer activates the device using a one-time activation code that is printed on the retail sales receipt. Once activated, the device remains permanently unlocked and fully functional. DiSa offers full support to manufacturers, retailers and consumers through 24/7 phone support, Web support, and App support.

The DiSa solution is a low-cost solution that increases efficiencies, both in the supply chain and in the retail store. With DiSa, retailers will be able to increase sales by merchandising product on the sales floor without fear of theft (no more product hiding in the backroom where it cannot be sold). Retailers will be able to merchandise more quickly, as they will not have to apply current asset protection (AP) standards, such as "keeper boxes," "spider wraps," or other inefficient standards. These current standards cost the retailers both: 1) employee productivity; and 2) heavy internal costs from purchasing and repurchasing standards.

DiSa is designed to simplify the omni-channel retailer and manages a wide variety of transaction types in omni-channel retailing including: 1) traditional brick transactions, including a full gift box experience; 2) E-commerce transactions where DiSa will protect the purchase to the customer's door (no more mail theft or theft from a delivery vehicle); and 3) Buy Online, Pickup in Store (BOPIS) and same day pickup in store.
