Global Source Tagging

Source Tagging is the process of embedding an EAS label into a product's primary packaging or into the product itself at the point of manufacture. For apparel we offer a full hard tag recirculation process, beginning from the tag delivery to the textile manufacture until the collection of the tags from the retailer.  Both are efficient and fool-proof methods to protect goods and reduce labour costs. This helps increase retail chain efficiencies, sales and profitability, for the best total cost of ownership. Sensormatic® offers the world’s leading Global Source Tagging Solutions with unrivalled system performance and superior reliability so you can devote your time and energy to serving customers.

Managed Services and Remote Store Monitoring

We offer professional and technical services to support Remote Monitoring of your store and several Managed Services to leverage your investment and optimise your return. For examples, some of our Managed Services include EAS tag, label and consumer product certification, EAS source tagging, EAS hard tag recirculation, Dual-Technology (RFID/EAS) and hard tag recirculation. Through our Remote Monitoring options, we can help you achieve predictive service deployment and system health.

We also provide global application delivery and deployment, through application hosting and in-store, cloud-based or hybrid deployment models.
