DR ROLLWhat is EAS Source Tagging?

Source tagging is the process of embedding an EAS label into a product’s packaging or into the product itself at the point of manufacture.

Many apparel companies incorporate source tagging programs as a part of their corporate strategy to increase sales, increase in-stock rates, and decreases shrinkage.


Why Use Source Tagging for Apparel?

  • Apparel source tagging integrates with floor-ready programs, preventing the inevitable queues of merchandise waiting for an EAS tag before being placed on the selling floor.
  • It easies in the protection of high-risk merchandising, protecting the heart of a merchandise assortment, lowering shortage, and resulting in incremental sales.
  • Allows open merchandising opportunities, resulting in incremental sales, and more customer convenience during the shopping experience.
  • Relocates tag procurement and tagging costs to a more efficient place in the supply chain.
  • Eliminate or drastically cuts in-store tagging labor expense and misallocated productivity.
  • Pivots sales associates away from non-customer-centric activity to activities that drive shopper experience and satisfaction.
