News Image
It’s a great honor to receive this recognition for the Q-Tag... We faced some stiff competition, and this award is a testament to the innovation delivered by the Q-Tag in a very mature market where genuinely new ideas are rare.

ALL-TAG, a manufacturer of U.S. made RF EAS Labels, and a leading supplier of AM and RF Anti-theft Security Tags, Security Labels, and other loss prevention products, was recently awarded “Most Innovative In-Store Solution” of the year for the Q-Tag, at the 2018 Fraud Awards.

The UK Retail Risk Conference hosted the 2018 Fraud Awards. The event recognized the technological advancements and innovative approach that ALL-TAG’s Q-Tag brings to the market.

To qualify for the “Most Innovative In-Store Solution,” the judges looked for innovative approaches to an existing, tried and tested solution or genre. The solution had to be from either a vendor or be an in-house retailer solution.

“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition for the Q-Tag,” commented ALL-TAG Europe’s General Manager, Tim Moore. “We faced some stiff competition, and this award is a testament to the innovation delivered by the Q-Tag in a very mature market where genuinely new ideas are rare.”

“The global response to our launch of the Q-Tag has been amazing,” commented ALL-TAG’s Vice President of Sales, Andy Gilbert. “It is very challenging to create a revolutionary EAS hard tag these days, but the Q-Tag truly has tackled this objective.”

Q-Tag Product Features:

  • Q-Tag’s size, shape, and the connectivity between the tag and pin make it virtually impossible to remove from retail merchandise forcibly.
  • Q-Tag’s unique stacked 3D RF coil offers superior EAS system detection performance to standard 2D flat RF coils. Retailers no longer need large EAS tags to achieve adequate detection.
  • The patent-pending lock opens by a very unique array magnetic detacher that cannot be purchased anywhere is necessary to release the Q-Tag’s lock.
  • A single Q-Tag can come equipped with 8.2 MHz Radio-Frequency (RF), 58 KHz - Acousto-Magnetic (AM), and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies. For retailers with RF, AM, and RFID systems installed in various stores within their chains, they can merely use Q-Tag to accommodate each store regardless of the type of system installed there. No more keeping track of which tags need to be shipped to each individual store.
  • Q-Tag can be used to protect any apparel or soft good because Q-Tag’s specially designed pin will not damage even the most delicate fabrics such as ties, scarfs, and lingerie. With this pin, retailers can tag merchandise wherever they deem most useful from a security and/or customer experience standpoint.
  • Q-Tag is outfitted with a unique pin parking hole that will reduce tagging time by up to 30%.
  • “Parking” or connecting the pins to the tags will drastically reduce pin shortage.
  • Q-Tag’s pin parking hole will eliminate possible injuries, as there will no longer be loose pins laying around.
  • High definition logos, marketing, and promotional messages, security warnings, and QR codes can be printed on the top clear resin dome.
