Checkpoint Labels are the primary form of source tagging used by companies like Checkpoint Systems. Source Tagging is when a vendor applies an EAS device for theft prevention during the manufacturing process. This frees up time and resources spent by the retailer to apply these anti theft devices, while maintaining a measurable standard for consistency and execution rates.
The added benefit of having Checkpoint Labels source tagged by the vendors is that these labels can be internally affixed. This means the label can be sewn into a garment or shoe lining or built into the product’s components, preventing any access to prematurely defeat the label. Checkpoint Labels can also be enclosed inside of the packaging where they would be harder to locate and remove.
Checkpoint Systems is working hard to get vendors and manufacturers to have source tagging available for retailers. They have taken the initiative to make source tagging an industry standard for a very wide range of merchandise.
Unlike in years past where retail businesses had to lead the charge, Checkpoint Systems is doing the work for you. As a small business, you no longer need to worry about spearheading the fight to get your vendors on board with source tagging.
Now, all you really need to do is to provide the Checkpoint Systems for your location. Next you can contact your specific vendors to see who can provide you with your inventory already source tagged. Since many of these vendors are already providing this service to other retailers, it should be an easier transition than it was even a few years ago.
Because Checkpoint Systems is doing the footwork for you, your business can better benefit from this work in progress.
