TRUST CUSTOMERS WITHOUT TRUSTING THEIVES BY USING ALPHA THUNDER TAGS
One of the more increasingly popular ways to allow customers to expediently shop and checkout faster in retail is to allow the customer to get hands-on by using your mobile POS (Point Of Sale) solutions. Their shopping experience is streamlined by having them be in control of the scanning and payment of their selected items. It’s a welcome solution that puts the customer in control; however it poses a terrible threat to your bottom line at the same time. Many retailers have turned to Alpha High Theft Solutions brand Alpha Thunder Tag devices to balance this concept.
The Alpha Thunder Tag attaches to the flat surfaces of just about any item in your store to help stop shoplifting. Making them great retail anti theft devices in general. However in the case of mobile POS systems, they can attach just as easily to the backs of PDA’s (personal data assistant), tablets and larger smart phones. Whatever mobile POS devices you choose to protect, the Alpha Thunder Tag is a proven winner. When a thief attempts to walk out with your device, your existing EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) towers will alert you so that you can remedy the situation.
Brazen crooks that know that the EAS towers will alarm may try to detach the tag itself by popping it off of the device using a small screw driver or even their finger nail. In this case, the device is protected by a small plunger on the back of the tag that prevents removal of the tag itself. If the tag is removed from your tablet or other mobile POS device, a screeching loud (95dB) alarm will alert you to the tampering!
These wonderful tags are not only essential for mobile POS systems but also to prevent shoplifting. As I mentioned before, they can easily be attached to flat surfaces of many items by using the special adhesive that Alpha packages with them. They can be used on just about any items in your store that customers can reach. Item’s like display cameras, laptops, tablets and televisions to name a few. The principle is the same too; they try to leave the store with the items and the EAS towers will alert you to it. If they try to detach the tag from the item, they will get a 95dB dose of embarrassing alarm to deal with. The battle to prevent shoplifting in your store could weigh in your favor with these anti retail theft devices!
There are over $35 million worth of items stolen from stores by shoplifters every day. That’s over $13 billion dollars annually! The war against shoplifters, whether habitual or professionals must begin with the use of a plan and retail anti theft devices like the Alpha Thunder Tag.
