retail anti theft devices


Anti Shoplifting Tools

There is no common conclusion among retailers on what constitutes the best anti shoplifting device.  There are all kinds of tools that the retailer can use to keep shoplifting under control depending on the severity and frequency of theft, the category and price point of merchandise displayed and the actual location of the store itself.  The common denominator seems to be that no matter what anti shoplifting measures the retailer takes, the shoplifter will always try to find a way to defeat it.

Convex mirrors, visible cameras, and two way mirrors are easily seen and avoided by shoplifters, as are sales people and other employees.  All a shoplifter needs is a second of privacy hidden from view to conceal merchandise and be out of the store with it.

Checkpoint Security Systems has a retail theft prevention plan designed to stop shoplifting by all but the most determined shoplifters.

The retailer makes the decision as to the criteria of the merchandise to be protected.  Checkpoint labels or Checkpoint tags are attached to that merchandise and effectively ensures that a shoplifter will not steal it.

Checkpoint labels are placed on the packaging of merchandise considered high theft.  There are a large selection of anti shoplifting labels available from Checkpoint Systems that attach to the packages with adhesive or are hidden inside the merchandise so that it is not visible to the customer.  If these retail anti theft devices have not been deactivated by an employee and are carried out the door, an alarm will sound, alerting the staff to take action.

The Checkpoint tags attach to apparel and ready to wear by a pin that goes through the garment in an inconspicuous place and secures the tag to the garment.  The Checkpoint tags can be removed only with a special detacher.  As with the label, failure to remove the tag will result in an audible alarm at the exit.

Checkpoint Systems can help any retailer who wants to cut his losses due to shoplifting.  The presence of the Checkpoint Security System alone deters most shoplifters since it is visible but not intimidating at the customer entrance and the Checkpoint security tags and Checkpoint labels are extremely difficult to remove or defeat.

Used by themselves or with other retail theft prevention tools, a Checkpoint Security System will significantly decrease a retailer’s loss to customer theft.

Anti Shoplifting Checkpoint Tags are Alarming

Anti shoplifting Checkpoint tags used as part of a retail theft prevention plan along with Checkpoint Security Systems EAS protection of vulnerable high theft merchandise is alarming!

The shoplifters think it’s alarming because once the Checkpoint Security System is installed in the store, they will have to decide on another retailer to visit in order to continue to commit their crime undetected.  The customer can’t remove the Checkpoint tags once they’re attached.

The Checkpoint security tag is also alarming when it passes through the detection field of the Checkpoint Systems antennas located at the store’s entrance.  The audible alarm and flashing light (on most models) alert store staff to the fact that Checkpoint tags are still attached to articles that are leaving the store and require attention.  An employee using a special detacher specifically designed by Checkpoint Systems removes the tags at the point of sale.

Anti shoplifting applications for the Checkpoint security tags are designed for almost any type of merchandise, including specialty items.  The RF (Radio Frequency) technology used in Checkpoint Security Systems is the very latest and most advanced in the industry for retailers.  Also alarming for shoplifters is that the retailer can pick and choose which merchandise to protect.  Shoplifters will definitely avoid stores that utilize a Checkpoint Security System as part of its anti shoplifting strategy.  Apparel, sports gear, hardware, electronics, and almost any other type of merchandise you can imagine can be protected by one of Checkpoint Systems selection of hard tags or Checkpoint labels.

Checkpoint labels are best suited for items that a tag won’t work well on because of size or material, such as boxed or packaged items.

One thing a retailer won’t be alarmed about is the improvement in inventory shortage figures once an anti shoplifting program including Checkpoint Security Systems is used in his store.

Retail theft prevention is more than just a quick fix, but it is possible.

Most everyone is familiar with anti shoplifting devices such as EAS tags.  Hopefully, you are familiar with Checkpoint systems product, the Checkpoint security tags.  Many still don’t really have an understanding of how the Checkpoint security tags can really fight professional shoplifters and Organized Retail Crime rings.  Here is an example of how a fully functioning Checkpoint security system can work for retail theft prevention.

I had a store using Checkpoint systems.  One day the EAS alarm activated and the clerk looked up just in time to see a professional booster running out of the door with stolen product.  Now I already hear the questions.  If they got away where’s the retail theft prevention?  Keep reading.  In addition to the Checkpoint security tags, the store also had the Checkpoint systems CCTV system.  They were able to go back on the DVR to find the shoplifter entering and get a good picture of his face.  Management then showed the video to all of the employees and asked that they contact management if they saw that person.

Naturally, since the shoplifter was so successful the first time, he came back about a week later.  The cashier saw the perp enter the store and immediately called the manager.  The manager used the Checkpoint systems camera to verify that it was, in fact, the same guy and observed the shoplifter starting to conceal merchandise.  The manager went ahead and notified the PD who headed that way.  As the shoplifter attempted to leave this time the Checkpoint security system alarm sounded and the manager approached the shoplifter to ask for a receipt.  As the guy started to flea he ran right into the waiting arms of the police and was promptly taken to jail.

It sometimes takes work to build your case, but the right anti shoplifting devices make the job a lot easier when properly used.

Lessen the Impact of Theft with Checkpoint Systems

Businesses can be impacted by shoplifters at any time of the day. Businesses also feel the impact of shoplifting from a variety of thieves; everyone from the professional thief to the petty shoplifter. The outcome of either type of shoplifting is the same – loss of merchandise and profit for your business. The amount of loss can vary between the two groups and the impact on profit can be significant.

 

Retail theft prevention is a generic term for what you, as a business owner, can do to prevent theft in your business. It can mean teaching your employees about what they can do to prevent theft. Retail theft prevention can also mean utilizing anti shoplifting devices such as Checkpoint systems. Some type of system needs to be in place in order to lessen the effects of theft from shoplifters.

 

 A Checkpoint Security System, for example, includes Checkpoint security tags that can be attached to your high theft merchandise. These reusable devices are removed at the time of purchase at the register, and offer a deterrent to those customers that consider shoplifting at your business. They also are very difficult to remove without a key, so they slow down a shoplifter’s attempt to steal. Shoplifters need anonymity and speed in order to carry out their desire to steal, so a Checkpoint security system can take away those opportunities.

 

 Anti shoplifting devices can, for minimal investment, prevent the losses from shoplifting that your business is experiencing. Checkpoint security tags are a proven example of an effective tool for retail theft prevention. Profits improve, and shoplifters move on to an unprotected business.

Are anti shoplifting solutions at work for you?

If you pay an employee you expect him/her to work, right?  Well the same should go for the anti shoplifting devices you buy.  Let’s face it, with the economy where it is we are all concerned with expenses.  That said, you have to have employees in order to make sales and in the same regards you have to utilize retail theft prevention tools in order to protect the profit from those sales.

So how can you make anti shoplifting products “work”?  There are several ways.  First, you have to have the right “employee”.  Checkpoint security system is a leader in innovative retail theft prevention tools, such as Checkpoint security tags, cameras, clothing alarms, etc.  So now that we have hired the right “employee” in Checkpoint systems, we need to do the training.

Systems are only as good as the people who work them.  Managers need to be properly trained on how to use the Checkpoint security system cameras if they are going to track known shoplifters and avoid getting repeatedly hit by the same thieves.  Cashiers and other associates need to be trained on the EAS system so they know how to apply Checkpoint security tags properly and respond to the alarms properly.  (A few tips on the Checkpoint security tags placement.  Put hard tags in seams of product to avoid damaging the merchandise.  Put soft tags near the barcodes (preferably on the inside of the package if possible) to help ensure deactivation at the register.)

Finally, you have to manage the program.  Retail theft prevention is not a hands off process.  It requires monitoring, regular follow up to ensure proper functionality and fine tuning; just like the rest of your employees.  The good thing is Checkpoint systems offers great service to assist you in this process.

Retail theft prevention … fundamental or fantasy???

So everyone knows about Checkpoint security tags on merchandise, right?  There are several providers.  One that happens to be pretty good is made by Checkpoint security system.  I’ve had the opportunity to use their product and find it to be quality product at a good price.

But enough of that.  Do anti shoplifting devices work?  That’s the real question.  I can say without a doubt, “YES”!  Here’s an example.  A rookie thief wants to get product without attention.  He, like us, is familiar with the “beep, beep, beep” from the Checkpoint security system at the doors and knows that will draw attention.  When he/she see’s that Checkpoint security tags on product, then he/she is likely to head to your competitor to do the shoplifting there.  That is the key.  We say retail theft prevention too casually sometimes, but we often forget the “prevention” part.

There are other options as well.  Checkpoint systems offers camera systems too.  Cameras are great to use to record doors, registers and high theft areas of the store.  Just having them will cause potential shoplifters to think twice about stealing and it helps make your case in court when someone is dumb enough to still try.  You can always use smoke domes or “dummy domes” if you can’t afford the full Checkpoint systems camera system.  It still gives the illusion that you have a camera over certain “high theft” product and will deter the thieves.

Shoplifting is unfortunately a part of everyday retail.  The only way to truly employ retail theft prevention is to utilize the anti shoplifting devices that are available today.  Crime evolves and you have to keep up so it won’t shut you down.

Can Checkpoint security system work for your business?

Of course it can. The Checkpoint security system is a leading provider in anti shoplifting devices and strives to provide retail theft prevention solutions to its clients.  In today’s economy retail businesses will not survive without Checkpoint security tags or some type of anti shoplifting device to protect the product.

The last few years have seen a rise in retail theft.  This makes perfect sense considering the “great” economy we’re enjoying.  We all feel the pinch so I can understand one’s reluctance to invest in Checkpoint systems and other retail theft prevention products.  The problem is you can’t afford not to.  It is impossible to watch all customers at all times.  In fact, professional thieves and Organized Retail Crime (ORC) rings thrive on small businesses that don’t use Checkpoint systems.  The reason is simple.   It is much easier to steal from a store that does not use anti shoplifting devices that one that does.  ORC has become a multi-billion dollar a year business.  How much of your profits are being lost to these menaces?

There are a variety of options one can choose from provided by Checkpoint security system.  A common option, and one that is time tested and proven, is Checkpoint security tags.  These Checkpoint security tags go on high dollar / high theft items in order to deter theft and at least alert you when theft is taking place.  Checkpoint systems also offer clothing alarms.  These are devices that secure high dollar clothes (i.e. leather jackets, handbags, etc.) to the racks and create a rather loud audible siren when tampered with.  This will give you plenty of time to react to a potential theft before the perps get out the door rather than after.

Beep, Beep, Beep. Retail theft prevention sounds good to me.

Ever been in a store and heard the annoying beep, beep, beep at the doors? I bet no one even looked up did they?  Anti shoplifting systems are only as good as the people who use them.  So what are anti shoplifting systems?  These are systems designed to assist in retail theft prevention.

One primary source is provided by Checkpoint systems.  The Checkpoint security system utilizes Checkpoint security tags placed strategically on high theft merchandise.  When the merchandise is purchased at the register the Checkpoint security tags are removed or deactivated from the product.  When shoplifters try to steal product the Checkpoint security tags trigger the alarms on the Checkpoint security system that alerts employees of potential theft.  But here is the main point.  Anti shoplifting devices, such as Checkpoint systems, will not STOP a shoplifter.  No one has ever seen a security system throw a shoplifter down and put them in handcuffs.  They system only works if the employees respond.

At this point shoplifters know about, and are leery of, the Checkpoint security system.  Often times shoplifters will watch to see what employees do when the Checkpoint security system sounds.  If the employees engage the customer then the shoplifter is likely to go and steal elsewhere.  If the employees do not pay any attention to the alarm then the shoplifter knows that he/she does not have to worry about the Checkpoint security tags on the product and they can help themselves.

The true tool in retail theft prevention is employee awareness and engagement.  Tools such as Checkpoint systems are a great aid to assist employees in this endever.

Checkpoint Security Systems Open New Stores

Opening a new store can be a headache, but opening a new one without Checkpoint security systems can be an even bigger one. As a former store manager tasked with opening new stores, one of the first orders of business was to ensure I was being fitted with a Checkpoint security system. Working in retail, I knew the importance of checkpoint systems and what role checkpoint security tags played in helping protect my profits. Time and Time again I had seen shoplifters in my stores, attempting to remove checkpoint tags and other retail anti theft devices yet unable to. Did checkpoint systems stop shoplifting altogether? I can’t say for sure, but I can say that during my time as a store manager I saw dramatic decreases in the instances of theft and can attribute the positive inventory results to our anti shoplifting efforts and checkpoint security tags.

Retail theft prevention is not rocket science; however, most managers do not see or realize the importance of anti shoplifting efforts and what something like Checkpoint security systems can do for them. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, a checkpoint security system works when pedestals placed at the entrance/exits recognizes concealed checkpoint tags and checkpoint labels as they pass through. The pedestals then activate with an audible alert, causing the shoplifter to be discovered.  Retail anti theft devices like checkpoint labels and checkpoint tags are important parts of the retail world and Checkpoint security systems are the leader in their class.

I wanted to stop shoplifting from happening in my store, and I wanted to make sure I was providing my customers with the highest levels of customer service. I knew that I couldn’t stop shoplifting completely, but I could put a serious damper on the number of incidents by installing a checkpoint security system. As always, any business owner, any manager looking to help stop shoplifting in their businesses and create an anti shoplifting environment, I highly recommend a retail theft prevention program and getting your stores fitted with checkpoint systems.

Take the Work out of Retail Theft Prevention with Checkpoint Systems

Sometimes the customers that you think are going to steal from you are honest, and other times the ones you would never believe are stealing are really robbing you blind.  You can’t judge a book by its cover and when it comes to identifying those that wish to steal from you anti shoplifting efforts can feel useless…..

Retail theft prevention is more than just observing customers and paying extra attention to those that are stealing.  Anti shoplifting techniques are broad and expansive, and can be geared to fit the type of business that you operate.  One option to help stop shoplifting is utilizing retail anti theft devices.

Checkpoint security systems are an option available.  Checkpoint tags and Checkpoint labels can be affixed to your high theft merchandise so that it is more difficult to steal.  Those customers that are looking for an easy steal see Checkpoint systems in place in your business and reconsider whether or not you are an easy target.  Simplicity is what most shoplifters desire when deciding whether or not to steal from a business, so by having a Checkpoint security system in place, you take away that element.

Checkpoint security tags are removable at the time the merchandise is purchased, at the register using a key.  Without the key, they are extremely difficult to remove and therefore offer a visual deterrent to the would-be shoplifter.  Shoplifters simply do not have the time in your business to try and remove Checkpoint tags before concealing the merchandise they wish to steal from you.  It is much easier to move on to the next, unprotected business.

Retail anti theft devices such as Checkpoint security systems can do the work for you when it comes to retail theft prevention.
