Our anti-counterfeit technologies also extend to anti-theft technologies for retailers. Since 1989, we have helped a myriad of retailers protect themselves from a shoplifting industry that results in losses that run into the billions. In Australia alone, shop theft is estimated to be an AUS$2.7 Billion problem per annum. YPB has built specific security measures to combat this. Here is how:
Complete project management
Working closely with retailers, we consult, design and deploy loss prevention security solutions including customized anti-theft tags and labels.
Traditional Electronic Tags have evolved dramatically in size and functionality since the 1960s when the first electronic tags were created. Hard reusable tags, ink and alarming tags combined with disposable labels make up the majority of our products, which protect vulnerable, retail stock. These are removed or deactivated by the cashier at the point of sale and reused.
Meat Tags were specifically developed for one of the Australia’s leading food retailers to combat the multi-million dollar meat theft problem. Meat theft is widely accepted as one of the top three items stolen by dollar value in Australia. The anti-theft, microwave safe label was incorporated into pricing labels. These labels can either be applied in-store, printed in-store through the retailers own weigh scales or at the meat packing plant.
Max Wrap is a ‘one time use’ security label integrated into a polypropylene wrap so it encloses a box or package. This makes it a secure, easy-on-the-eye security solution that doesn’t interfere with the look of a product while providing an effective, anti-theft measure.
Alarming Tags are able to set off an alarm when tampered with in-store or when a tagged item is taken through the security gates without being paid for. Once the alarm is set off, Alarming Tags can also secure the gates resulting in the shoplifter being identified immediately.
Gates and Detection Systems.
Gates & Detection Systems is a YPB supplied range of AM and RF EAS gates. This is the detection hardware that senses the tags or labels when an attempt is made to shoplift a product. An alarm sounds at the exit if this occurs.
