InVue: Merchandising & Security Done Right
InVue is a global technology firm connecting brands and retailers with innovative software, merchandising, and security solutions that optimize efficiency and the consumer experience. InVue products seamlessly protect and promote retail merchandise to enhance the in-store retail experience and improve the bottom line of their numerous clients around the world.
Richard Sankey originally founded InVue (formerly known as Alpha Enterprises) in 1972 as a product design company. The firm quickly outgrew its Canton, Ohio office in a renovated old house and transformed into a successful product marketing company by the 1980’s. Their first manufacturing plant opened in 1986, eventually expanding into four facilities in the U.S. alone. By the 1990s, InVue had gone global and began to specialize in providing retailers with effective security solutions, opening offices in Europe and the Asia Pacific by the 2000s. InVue continues this tradition of disruptive innovation by continuing to develop the most cutting-edge security and data solutions in the world.
Currently, the cornerstone of InVue’s customer product offerings is their revolutionary OneKEY solution, a single physical key that transfers power to unlock a diverse array of security products, deactivates and activates different alarming devices, and allows retailers to analyze and record customer and associate interactions with merchandise through effectively capturing data.
