Inventory Control Equals Customer Satisfaction and Increased Profits.  Checkpoint Tags Can Show You How
Being in the Loss Prevention field I am able to see the industry from multiple perspectives.  I am able to understand the complexities involved in the industry as well as the frustrations that are common to the customer.  I have been in many situations as a customer, which has left me feeling displeased with my shopping experience.  My husband and I are avid outdoorsmen.  We love to hunt and fish, kayak, hike, camp and spend time outdoors whenever possible.  This means we tend to spend a lot of time in stores that sell outdoor equipment, clothing and supplies.  These stores tend to vary depending on where in the country you live, but we have a few in our area that we frequent.  We have one particular outfitter that we use quite frequently, although most days we leave frustrated and disappointed.  My husband is signed up for the stores marketing and sales notifications, and always finds something he is wanting in those ads, which usually means a trip to the store.  Unfortunately for us, every time we go in to locate one of these sale items, they have none in stock.  It has gotten to the point now that we just assume that they won’t have the item he wants, and don’t bother even making the trip.  I can’t imagine they are doing this intentionally, and can only assume these are corporate sales, in which each store is responsible for managing their own inventory for these sale items.  I can tell you that it is very frustrating for my husband and has resulted in us shopping at other stores.  We go into their store less frequently, due to their inventory control problems, which means we aren’t buying other items either.  Maybe that is a good thing for us because we aren’t spending the money, but it can’t be a good thing for the retailer.  As a retailer myself I know inventory control is critical to maintaining customer satisfaction and increasing sales and profit margins.  The question is; how do we do a better job managing our inventory?  The best way to accomplish this is through the use of Checkpoint tags.  
Checkpoint tags can be utilized both in store and at the source, depending on your needs.  At the source tagging allows for the products to be tagged prior to them being shipped to your store.  Checkpoint offers a means to not only secure and protect your products from theft, but it also allows you to manage inventory and quantities efficiently.  You can track your products from the source through the sale, which limits inventory control issues, and increases customer satisfaction.  Checkpoint tags can be placed on any item, regardless of the shape or size, and they are protected with EAS technology.  These EAS tags provide a multi-faceted means to save time and money by eliminating the need to tag in store, and it can incorporate branding into the process as well.  This allows for a direct integration that saves time and money. This process is especially efficient for those retailers that have their own market brand.   
Checkpoint tags are a great way to protect your products and improve your inventory control all in one step.  Checkpoint’s Check-Net service offers real time inventory management and reduces inefficiencies. You can ensure you always have the product on hand that you need, anytime you need it.  These EAS tags also protect your products and reduce shrinkage, which improves sales and profit all in one convenient tag.  Source tagging reduces time in store, retrofitting your products, thus improving product availability.  I know if the store we use had source tagging I would be a much more satisfied customer and would shop more for the things I need.  Don’t lose money by being ill-prepared and unorganized, spend the money to protect yourself and improve your inventory management.
