EAS Electronic Article Surveillance Tagging

Shoplifting poses an ever increasing threat to retailers. Up to 20% of your total profit could be being lost through shoplifting, so the control of shoplifting and deterrence has a direct effect on your bottom line and can even make the difference between success and failure.

One of the most effective means of controlling shoplifting has been the use of security tagging systems, also known as electronic article surveillance (EAS). The best of these systems can dramatically reduce shoplifting levels, acting as a powerful deterrent to casual theft whilst also frustrating the professional shoplifter.

As well as reducing theft, the system can have a positive effect on sales. With less stock being stolen, you’ll be able to reduce the sale price, attracting more customers to improve the bottom line.

Open merchandising is proved to increase sales. Being able to more easily access and handle products increases impulse buying, therefore being able to display more stock freely as opposed to locking them away can be hugely beneficial to your sales figures. EDS have a range of labels, tags & attachments to provide adequate protection for your products, and a range of detection methods for exits.

Maximum customer throughput is maintained at the checkouts due to the reduced de-activation times of tags, without any damage to products. The robust security design of the high impact plastic body or the hi-tack adhesion of the labels makes it virtually impossible to be removed without damaging the products, therefore making the theft of the item pointless.

EAS Detection Barriers Systems

Detection systems are designed to be integrated into your environment with virtually no false alarms. No tag or label shielding is required; put simply they just work.

EDS tagging systems are easily integrated into the normal surrounding of an existing operation, without detracting from service given to genuine customers. They are designed to work in high traffic areas of city centres.

The EDS range of systems are software driven, constantly checking the environment and self adjusting to optimise performance. Larger detection ranges of up to three metres are available.
