Simple Field Installation Provides Smooth Path to RFID
THOROFARE, N.J. – April 28, 2015 – Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CKP), a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced an RFID upgrade kit for its EVOLVE iRange P10 antennas, giving retailers a smooth migration to RFID by enabling the use of a single tag for both inventory visibility and loss prevention.
The upgrade kit is fitted by Checkpoint Systems service technicians to existing or new P10 antennas.
EVOLVE iRange P10 RFID
The P10 RFID leverages all the advantages of RFID technology as well as serving as a powerful solution for loss prevention at entrances/exits and a visual deterrent for would-be shoplifters. It supports Checkpoint’s unique One Tag™ approach, enabling retailers to use a single RFID tag for inventory visibility and loss prevention; support for differentiated alarms based on the quantity and/or value of the merchandise leaving the store; and support for Checkpoint’s patented Wirama Radar™ for vastly superior tag-read accuracy, directionality and location. This enables retailers to place merchandise closer to exit doors, minimizing the risk for false alarms.
In addition to retailer advantages, consumers benefit because stores can monitor inventory more closely and replenish “true” out of stocks, so items they seek will be available on shelves when purchasing online through click and collect, or buying directly in stores.
“Technology should make life easier for both consumers and retailers,” said Uwe Sydon, Senior Vice President of Innovation, Checkpoint Systems. “Checkpoint’s RFID upgrade kits accomplish this, with simple implementation and proven loss prevention and merchandise availability benefits that help everyone.”
Beyond a full deployment of mobile service technicians worldwide, Checkpoint offers retailers a variety of maintenance and enhancement options through its Service Maintenance Programs, including the ability to connect rapidly to any store using EVOLVE iRange solutions, as well as enabling important system reviews and adjustments to be carried out rapidly with minimal impact to the store. It also offers reactive remote support and proactive remote support with Key Performance Indicators such as system performance reporting and service levels across retailer estates.
The upgrade kit is available immediately.
