Some of Metro Security’s 35-strong staff have gathered at the company’s Romford HQ to celebrate its recent Queen’s Award for Enterprise (for Innovation). As one of 61 winners in this year’s Innovation category, Metro’s success in the most prestigious awards for UK businesses has been achieved with the development of its Metro Analytic Retail Solution (M.A.R.S).

Metro Security’s MD, Trevor Wallace, will be attending a Buckingham Palace Reception being held in June, where Prince Charles will be hosting all the winners of 2019 Queen’s Awards. Meanwhile, the M.A.R.S system has also been shortlisted for the Retail Systems Awards, announced on 27 June, competing in the ‘In-store technology of the year’ category.

M.A.R.S is a software analytics-based system that combines significant and demonstrable loss prevention capabilities, along with a range of complementary retail management, operational, marketing, customer care and staff training tools.
