Checkpoint’s Product Protection Portfolio: Total Solutions

Product protection is a predominant issue for retailers wanting to protect their merchandise without locking it in a glass case. For full product protection with an “open display” philosophy, retailers can rely on an ample array of solutions from Checkpoint, such as:

Label Solutions

When combating theft, label solutions can help deter theft on the shelf. With our industry-recognized Black Lock logo, visible tagging is an easy way to secure your product in-store, in the distribution center, or at the point of manufacture. Some of our RF EAS labels, such as our Shield Tag, can damage the packaging due to the aggressiveness of the adhesive. This reduces the products’ street value, making it less desirable to resell. As ORC becomes one of the largest issues regarding in‑store “shrink” this is a huge value add for retailers. Our label portfolio includes labels that come in all shapes and sizes, practical for every type of packaging, even those with difficult shapes and materials. Tagging your merchandise with RF EAS labels helps alert store employees of when a theft occurs, as the antennae at the entrance will alarm. This allows them to react in accordance with store policy.

Hardware Solutions

  • Point of Sale: When customers are ready to checkout, solutions like our deactivation pads help efficiently deactivate labels before they leave the store. This decreases false alarms so that antennae can identify theft. These solutions can be added to traditional checkouts as well as self-checkout systems.
  • Point of Exit: EAS antennae at the point of exit will alarm when a non‑deactivated label passes through. Checkpoint’s antenna families come with many different benefits. Our EVOLVE range of antennae has enhanced detection of up to 6ft and integrated people counting for monitoring store traffic. The E10 from our EVOLVE line can combine RF and RFID technologies, designed to be flexible around the dynamic needs of the retail industry. With almost infinite design options thanks to the easily accessible ad panels, the E10 allows retailers to create an antenna that blends with store aesthetics and branding, accommodating both printed paper formats or high‑impact fabric covers with any design or message, ensuring that store entrances are inviting and engaging for potential customers. Our NEO range of antennae offers easier installation through wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and remote monitoring and maintenance. Both families come in many different designs and sizes so that retailers can find the best fit for their store layout. The NS40/42 is designed to offer retailers greater installation flexibility without compromising security at the checkout or anywhere in-store. This pedestal offers an ultra-slim design that reduces the space required for EAS and allows customers more area to pack and better coverage in wider, wheelchair-accessible lanes.

Alpha High Theft Solutions

Alpha has pioneered the “Open Display” security philosophy and provided retailers with the most innovative and technologically advanced products engineered to protect high-theft merchandise. These solutions deliver uncompromising security, ease-of-use for store associates, and aesthetics that complement the merchandise they protect. Our US manufacturing facility in Canton, Ohio, gives Alpha superior inventory and quality control, which translates to high volume, low labor, and speed of delivery.

  • Keeper® Security Devices: With 75+ sizes to choose from, Keepers are one of the most versatile and secure solutions for high-theft merchandise. Made in the USA with the strongest clear recyclable polycarbonate and magnetic spring lock that only opens with Alpha’s S3 Keys. All Keeper® lids are made with 100 percent recycled materials and allow customers to create attractive visual displays with the confidence that the merchandise is protected well.
  • Rx Cap: The strongest prescription to cure any shrink problems. The Rx Cap provides the highest level of protection for both controlled and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals and supplements. The prominent cap offers a strong visual deterrent, and the innovative design provides robust security. Small and large options cover more than 90 percent of bottles found in the market.
  • Universal Disposable Hang Tag: This cost-effective solution provides a positive ROI that is fast to apply and does not require removal. The Universal Disposable Hang Tags are easily applied across a wide variety of products, with a consistent design fitting wide, lower hanging holes to fit most of the single or double peg hooks. Spikes provide benefit denial for resell and extra support to stabilize hang tags.
  • ShrinkShelf: From product protection to planogram perfection, ShrinkShelf is a revolutionary shelf management system and display solution that enhances your product presentation while reducing theft with anti-sweep technology. Its design is based on the concept of “sell more lose less”™, enabling retailers to deliver a superior customer experience and defend their bottom line. The open display design allows consumers to continue to purchase shelf-based items with ease. Restocking products is fast and simple, and the pull-out drawer promotes restocking from the back. This reduces labor costs and allows employees to spend more time with customers. This easy-to-use, easy-to-install solution is customizable with variable-size hoods, education bar, and LED lights to fit your needs.
  • Alpha Zone: This new product locationing system offers zonal protection of display or high-value products without securing the products to store fixtures. This allows consumers to shop in an open display environment by allowing them to touch and use the product while minimizing the store’s theft risk. Alpha Zone protects products in real-time, 24/7; it is simple to use and highly effective. The system consists of UHF RF tags that are applied directly to the product and Alpha Zone hubs. The system works through communication between the hub and the tags. The hub emits a signal to the tags. Each tag contains a moetion sensor, and when the product is moved, it searches for the signal emitted by the hub. If the product goes out of the hub’s range, the alarm contained in the tag will trigger. Once the product is returned to its zone, the alarm will stop. The tag will also alarm if the tag is tampered with.

Retailers can find more opportunities when using RFID as EAS, allowing them to have visibility on what product is exiting the store without purchase, as RFID technology provides item‑level data to the store. Fast, accurate detection of items within your store and throughout your supply chain makes understanding your stock levels and locations immediately simpler.

A layered security approach gives retailers peace of mind when managing loss prevention efforts. A combination of these solutions will help businesses protect their merchandise better. Innovation is at the core of Checkpoint’s business; working with retailers to determine what solutions will work for their issues is our main objective.
