Checkpoint Systems, Inc, a global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, recently announced its CLASSIC N10 electronic article surveillance (EAS) solution, which is designed primarily for convenience stores.
The N10 features a smaller, flexible antenna that places a premium on floor space, while reducing shrink, improving on-shelf availability and enabling the open display of merchandise.
Coupled with Checkpoint’s breadth of tagging solutions, it protects a wide range of merchandise, and serves as an introduction for retailers with smaller store entrances and exits as well as other areas within the store where theft occurrence can be high, such as restroom areas and employee break rooms.
According to Uwe Sydon, senior vice president of innovation, Checkpoint Systems, “We’ve researched and worked with convenience stores that have many of the same requirements for loss prevention solutions as larger outlets, but often have neither the floor space nor the budget for standard traditional floor mounted, free-standing EAS antennas. With the introduction of the N10 – featuring one of the smallest EAS antennas on the market — those limitations are gone.”
The N10 uses Checkpoint’s latest generation of detection platforms, which includes jammer detection for organized retail crime attempts to defeat the system, and the latest noise filtering and reduction software to ensure the N10 always performs at an optimum level.
Its bright LED lit acrylic design acts as a visual deterrent for potential theft. The N10 can be wall or door-frame mounted or sited on an optional free-standing floor mount. In addition, retailers can swivel the antenna in any direction, as well as spin and tuck it out of the way when needed.
Retailers using the N10 can choose from a range of product tagging solutions from Checkpoint, including Alpha High Theft Solutions, as well as hard tags and soft labels.
Consumers benefit from improved on-shelf product availability and open merchandising via the theft reduction effects of EAS, and the active deterrent N10 provides in reducing theft attempts in the protected stores. In addition, because of its smaller size, shoppers’ movements aren’t restricted.
