Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), is the most effective way to provide retail businesses with a high-level protection. It usually involves the use of electronic gateways/antennas and hard/soft tags and labels. Special tags and labels are fixed to merchandise and can only be detached and deactivated by the clerks when the item is properly bought or checked out. When a hard tag, soft tag or label is taken out of the shop past the EAS gateway an automatic alarm will go off.
With an EAS system installed in your store you give your customers the ultimate opportunity to explore products on display while at the same time you are able to protect your merchandise and reduce shoplifting and stock shrinkage. This results in customer satisfaction and repeat purchases in the long term.

With nearly 300 million incidents per year, shoplifting is estimated to account for between 30-40% of retailer's lost profit. Shoplifters say they are caught an average of only once in every 48 times they steal. But how do they get away with it?
There are lots of reasons that retailers don’t always catch shoplifters in their stores.
First of all, it is almost impossible to identify the typical shoplifter, as men and women shoplift equally no matter their financial condition. In addition to this, there’s the fact that many people shop for and pay for items at the same time they are shoplifting, which makes them appear to many shop owners as a perfectly legitimate customer.
Over the years, shoplifters have discovered a wide variety of methods for counteracting security measures. The best bet for retail managers these days is to employ an integrated video surveillance, EAS and display security system in order to enhance customers’ experience while preventing shoplifting and consequent stock loss.
Security concerns are not only for large department store. If you run a small family business it is important for you to protect yourself and keep an eye on different areas of the shop.
