Simply incorporating new security tags and ink tags with a different look can quickly reduce shrink and increase ROI

Last year a major U.S. retailer identified higher priced clothing in their stores where losses were increasing even though they were protected by a traditional EAS Sensor tag and ink pin. The retailer tested the use of a larger and different shaped EAS Sensor tag with an integrated ink pin that used a different detacher. The losses on these selected items was reduced by over 40%. The retailer expanded the program this year and they have seen similar reduction in losses nationwide. The reduction in losses paid for the cost of the new EAS Sensor tag and integrated ink pin in less than 4 months. The retailer attributed the reduction in losses to shoplifter not knowing how the new EAS Sensor tag and integrated ink pin worked.
