recently announced its fourth consecutive year of revenue growth for its genuine Sensormatic source tagging program. For fiscal year 2014, Tyco earned the
highest source tagging revenue in the company's history, with growth in both
source application of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) labels and
recirculation of hard tags. Tyco's source tagging program is the largest in the

world's top retailers.
Tyco's comprehensive source tagging program encompasses source application of

allowing retailers to quickly deliver items to the selling floor, and reallocate
labor to focusing on customers for a more personalized experience. With Tyco's
global presence and unmatched source tagging infrastructure, retailers receive

An industry pioneer in apparel protection, Tyco introduced apparel and textile
source tagging with EAS labels sewn into merchandise at the manufacturing
source. Tyco initiated another source tagging first with Visible Source Tags (VST)
that are affixed to apparel and then recirculated through the supply chain. With
Tyco's newest dual technology Acousto-Magnetic (AM) EAS and RFID hard tags,
retailers can now control shoplifting, and also gain vital RFID-enabled
item-level visibility for better inventory management and connection to the
Internet of Things (IoT). Gaining immense popularity with retailers, Tyco's recirculated RFID hard tags are a cost effective and environment-friendly
approach for deploying full scale apparel RFID programs.
