METRO Group, one of Europe’s largest retailers, is working with Checkpoint Systems to deliver an RFID-based Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) solution.
EAS enables retailers to not only know when a theft has occurred but also what specific merchandise was stolen, granting them a more accurate picture of inventory levels. According to Checkpoint, EAS systems represent a significant stepping stone to bringing RFID into the supply chain and store operations.
Checkpoint’s Evolve EAS platform involves the use of Dual tags, which feature both RFID and EAS technology to provide real-time merchandise visibility as well as security monitoring capabilities.
METRO Group is currently trialling Checkpoint’s Evolve EAS solution and hopes to see tangible benefits in loss prevention and merchandise visibility.
