Retail Tagging

Retail Tagging

If you are a business owner then one of your top priorities is to prevent shoplifting and to provide the most effective retail security. Electronic article surveillance (EAS) and tagging systems are designed to help you achieve this.

 

Studies show that a reliable tagging system reduces your exposure to shoplifting by up to 60 % on its own. When used in conjunction with CCTV and other security measures theft reduction is much higher. Alongside CCTV and security personnel, tagging systems are regarded as one of the most effective ways to detect, deter and catch thieves.

 

How a Tagging system works:

The central component of the system is a tag that is securely attached to the product / merchandise. These tags are either removed or deactivated at the point of purchase. The detection system (pedestals) located at the entrance / exit of the store will activate an alarm alerting the staff if an active tag passes through the pedestals.
