Stock Loss Prevention; Could Security Tagging Be The Solution?
“In England and Wales there were over 374 thousand shoplifting offences recorded by the police in 2018/19." [source Statista] Security tagging can help retail businesses in their effort to prevent stock loss in 3 different ways.
1. Deter Criminals From Shoplifting
Security tags are a superb choice for retail security, not merely due to their ability to alert you to stock being removed from your store without being purchased; but also thanks to the deterring presence of pedestal systems like XpondrTM 66Khz, AM - 58Khz, and RF - 8.2 Mhz. Indeed, thanks to the security solutions that we here at Tagmax are able to provide, you could both deter potential criminals from attempting to steal from your retail establishment, alongside possibly deterring other forms of anti-social behaviour, such as product vandalism.
2. You Can Combine Tags & Pedestals With Other Security Solutions
Security tags are a superb method to alert you to a shoplifting incident, however you can empower their stock loss prevention abilities by combining numerous security solutions. For example, security tags and pedestals create the alert, which a security guard could respond to. Alternatively or additionally, you could also use measured markers alongside CCTV, so that should the shoplifter escape, CCTV recordings and security staff can provide a more accurate estimate of the shoplifter's height; which will help describe an offender when seeking prosecution, alongside the deterrent. After all, it's not unreasonable to suggest that a would-be-shoplifter could see these markers, and decide against stealing from your store due to the security precautions.
3. They Can Help To Combat Employee Theft
Whilst there are lots of different methods that businesses can use in an attempt to tackle employee theft, such as monitoring or POS software, it's important that you don't forget about the value of security tags. After all, EAS security tags and other similar security tagging and labelling solutions will ensure that items cannot be simply 'pocketed' and will need to have the label or tag removed.
What Tags Should You Choose? How Do You Combat De-Taggers?
No security system is perfect and every system has its own advantages and disadvantages. For example, security guards can provide a very powerful deterrent due to their presence alone; however some skilled and experienced thieves will be able to sneak past the guard without being caught.
As such, when considering the security tags used in your retail establishment, you need to consider the disadvantages of tagging solutions, and choose security tags that mitigate this risk. For example, one of the major disadvantages of a security tag is their ability to be removed with ade-tagging device. A skilled thief could use a de-tagger to remove security tags, and then sneak past a security guard with an unknown quantity of your products; so how can you make it more difficult for the thief to remove your security tags? Here at Tagmax, we recommend scorpion tagging systems.These tags come in three different types, one of which is the pin which is mainly used for clothing products. These pin tags are able to be placed on or inside any soft material products, making them an ideal choice for retail stores. The scorpion tags provide robust protection against prepared shoplifters using de-tagging devices. If the scorpion tag is separated from the pin, the device will immediately sound an alarm, allowing employees and security staff to respond in an appropriate manner.
Additionally, with regards to shoplifters sneaking past security staff or pedestals, you could choose a digital loop system which conceals the security system in the doorway. This prevents potential shoplifters from sneaking around potential gaps in pedestals. Additionally, for further discretion the receiver antenna can be sprayed to match the colour of the door uprights, providing a near seamless security display.
