Checkpoint Systems' RF/RFID Antenna Boasts Flexible, Customizable Design
Options, Powerful Use of Data for Apparel Retailers
RF, RFID and Dual-Mode Versions Meet Unique
Retail Needs, Protect Business Investments
N.J. - Oct. 13, 2015 -
Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise
availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced the
EVOLVE MV E10 2.0 antenna, which features a highly customizable design and
the ability to leverage powerful data analytics to empower loss prevention,
operations and merchandising apparel retail professionals.
In addition, The E10 2.0 comes in RF, RFID and dual-mode (RF/RFID) versions to
meet the specific needs of retailers and enables them to future proof their
business investments. For example, by allowing retailers to invest in RFID at a
later point via an RFID upgrade kit, the E10 2.0 enables them to use their
existing electronic article surveillance (EAS) RF solutions today and then use
RFID when the time is right for their businesses. In dual-mode, only one tag is
required for both inventory management and loss prevention.
According to Uwe Sydon, Senior Vice President of Innovation, Checkpoint Systems,
"The E10 2.0 represents a new generation of antenna where style meets substance.
Whether retailers want to adapt to existing store layouts, boost their brand
messages or create a visual deterrent to theft, the E10 2.0 is ready to meet
their needs. In addition, powerful data analytics enhance loss prevention and
Accommodating flexible store designs is one of the drivers of RFID adoption at
apparel retailers. Checkpoint has taken the E10 2.0 to a new level of design
flexibility. The antenna can be used as a sleek see-through acrylic design, or
can be changed instantly to become an advertisement panel for a store's
products, simply by inserting graphic panels that are held in place by the
elegant standard display. Advertising panels serve as a low-cost means to
promote in-store campaigns or the brand itself.
The new antenna also is EMOPrint ready, which means retailers can obtain from
Checkpoint full color textile panels that are easy to modify on the E10 2.0.
EMOPrint improves the appearance of the antenna, making the store entrance much
more appealing, an important factor for apparel retailers.
Lastly, retailers can further customize the antenna by ordering from Checkpoint
full color graphic prints that are applied to the antenna base plates and RFID
elements, to create a unique branded antenna solution. Some antenna areas are
also available in color options to meet a store's overall design scheme. In
addition, the side of the antenna can be fully illuminated to create a high
impact visual effect.
Powerful Data Analytics
Checkpoint's data analytics for the E10 2.0 help merchandising and operations
staff better understand store traffic, and ensure that store associates leverage RF/RFID investments appropriately, comply with store shoplifting policies and
have systems always turned on and operating properly.
Integrated Vistor Counting is embedded in the new system, offering highly
sophisticated functionality, analytics and reporting to improve profitability.
It enables retailers to maximize the potential of their sales floor space,
calculate shopper conversion rates and improve staffing allocations.
