Verisk Retail Launches LERPnet Falcon

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., June 10, 2013 — Verisk Retail has launched LERPnet Falcon, the third major release of the Law Enforcement Retail Partnership Network (LERPnet) data-sharing platform. The new release adds greatly enhanced performance and user-interface updates, providing retailers and law enforcement with a significantly improved experience for sharing incidents related to retail crime. Verisk Retail is a unit of Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK), a leading source of information about risk.

“The exceptional enhancements in responsiveness, functionality, and user experience will be noticed immediately,” said Johnny Custer, LERPnet program director. “LERPnet Falcon is the culmination of invaluable input and guidance from our user group, Retail Advisory Board, and Law Enforcement Council. We’re excited to see the LERPnet platform continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of both our retail and law enforcement users.”

LERPnet is a browser-based solution, allowing the system to be updated and improved without downtime, complex rollouts, or internal IT support. This significant update is immediately available and presented to all users upon login to the system.

“Verisk Retail is looking forward to bringing collaboration to retailers and law enforcement via the LERPnet solution,” added David Duhaime, vice president of Verisk Crime Analytics. “Verisk Retail continues to invest in the integration of data sources to bring meaningful insights and to facilitate internal and external collaboration around data analytics for our retailer partners.”

LERPnet is one of more than 15 retail-oriented solutions within the Verisk Retail suite of analytics solutions. First launched in 2007 as a joint effort of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), the National Retail Federation (NRF), and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), LERPnet is a secure, national system designed to bring local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and retailers together through its unique information-sharing and crime-tracking capability.
