Chubb Offering

Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) retail systems can protect your store from shoplifters, reduce the loss of inventory and prevent staff fraud. The EAS-Retail integrated systems supplied by Chubb Thailand consist of pedestals, tags or labels and detachers. Any attempt to remove a marked product from the store will activate an alarm thus preventing and deterring theft.

Pedestals & Labels & Tags & Detachers

Chubb uses a range of simple and easy-to-apply tags and labels to mark your products which can be quickly removed at point of payment. By utilizing the purpose-built ‘detacher’, tags and labels can be removed without damaging goods or activating the alarm system. Should anyone attempt to leave the store with the tag still attached to an item, the system will activate the alarm and security employees can quickly intercept the person.

RFID for retailer:

Reduce out-of-stocks, reduce on-hand inventory and increase sales

Retailers must have the merchandise that customers want when they come in to shop. But retailers who hold too much inventory risk overstocks and costly markdowns, presenting an even greater problem when the cost of capital needed to fund inventory is high. Effective inventory management is critical to retailers’ profitability.

The traditional success factors of reducing cost, optimizing inventory, improving shelf availability and increasing sales and margins are more crucial to retailers today than ever before, yet retailers continue to lack accurate insight into their perpetual inventory. This high-resolution visibility improves in-store operations, supports defensive inventory practices and ensures merchandise is available for purchase when customers come to shop.

A Harvard Business School study found that 65% of the time the reported perpetual inventory was inaccurate.

Merchandise Visibility enables retailers to:

  • Reduce out-of-stocks
  • Maximize on-shelf availability
  • Reduce on-hand inventory
  • Increase sales and margins
