Do you remember the days when EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) towers or antennas at the exit doors were only used to detect items in which the tags hadn’t been removed from or deactivated? Checkpoint Systems has taken the technology of their already industry leading products, and made even more enhancements. They have developed them into versatile tools for your business that will give you an advantage over your competitors, and save you money and floor space at the same time.
EAS systems are primarily used as a form of retail theft prevention. As a visual deterrent, just seeing the units at the door is enough to scare away some thieves. There are several components to the system as a whole. These elements include the EAS antennas at the main entrance and exit doors, which could also be placed in other areas such as receiving doors, employee entrance doors, or even entrances to fitting rooms and areas dividing different departments or secured zones. The next component would be the Checkpoint Tags, which are the tags you place on the merchandise itself. Another part of the system is the deactivation pads or device that are usually located at the registers, so the cashiers can remove or deactivate the tags when the customer purchases the merchandise.
Checkpoint System’s EAS solutions are not only used to stop shoplifting anymore. There are now several different applications that are integrated in the systems, such as customizable ad panels and base covers to fit your specific business needs. The advertising panels come standard with the purchase of the antennas, so you can place any type of advertising or signing you want, directly into the EAS tower. This will save you floor space if you usually used separate signing fixtures for ads, so you’ll have more room for additional products or just less clutter in the area. If you don’t have any special ads you want to place in them, you can always leave them empty or use the “Welcome” ad panels that come with the units.
Then there are the customizable base covers, which offer you the ability to match the base of the EAS antenna to the design of your store. Currently, there are five different colors available, which include Checkpoint Grey (which comes standard), Ruby Red, Jet Black, Emerald Green, and Pearl Night Blue. With all of those choices, you are sure to find something that appeals to your color palate. All of these features are available with the Checkpoint Systems Classic Street EAS antennas. If you’re still not satisfied, you will definitely want to check out the Checkpoint Evolve iRange P30 unit. This EAS unit has all of the feature of the Classic Street, and then some.
The Evolve iRange unit is constructed of sturdy alloy, and can be upgraded to Integrated VisiPLus that has the ability to count your customer traffic throughout the day so you will know exactly how many customers are visiting your store at any given time. This will allow you to monitor you busy times and schedule your staff accordingly, to keep your customers happy. These units can also be wall, post, or overhead mounted. If that weren’t enough, the units can also have network capabilities that allow you to access EAS data remotely from your computer.
