BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (Jun. 4, 2020) – CONTROLTEK a leader in retail asset protection and security solutions, adds virtual site survey services for examining loss prevention solutions to better support retailers while keeping a commitment to the health and safety of employees and customers.

“Retailers are preparing their stores for reopening and the anticipated increase in theft issues and health and safety concerns. We want to allow them to examine asset protection solution options without having to wait for lifted restrictions or be concerned about exposing the health and safety of their employees,” said Rubin Press, vice president, global sales at CONTROLTEK. “We’ve simply taken our LP Professional Services and made them virtual to meet the needs of our customers.”

“Our Customer Success organization’s many years of experience operating remotely has allowed us to provide uninterrupted and responsive customer support during this difficult time,” said David Hardeman, CONTROLTEK’s director of customer success. “We conduct the virtual site survey with the same First Time Right approach and level of service our customers would experience in-store. Our certified representatives know the right questions to ask to understand our customer’s challenges, and which loss prevention solution would work best in their particular retail environment.”

“This new service offering is another way we continue to support our customers amidst the challenges brought on by the pandemic, while helping them prepare their stores and protect their assets,” said Rod Diplock, CEO of CONTROLTEK. “Thinking differently to evolve and improve our operations has also allowed us to keep our employees working while ensuring their health and safety is protected.”

RFID Inventory Management

USA-based CONTROLTEK ISS serves retailers worldwide with theft-protection tagging and RFID tracking technology for RFID inventory management.

In today’s global arena, where retailers face the nonstop threat of internal crooks, shoplifters and sophisticated thieves, the need for cutting-edge security-packaging products and monitoring devices is vital.

Meeting this international need is the development, refinement and implementation of modern-day technologies, such as Radio-frequency identification (RFID). Embraced by New Jersey-headquartered Securotek, the scientific innovation is part of the company’s quest to remain at the forefront of the security-tagging products and services.

As defined by the U.S. government, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) refers to a wireless system comprised of two components: Tags and readers.

The reader is a device that has one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals back from the RFID tag. CONTROLTEK ISS provides the advantages of the technology to a variety of industries, such as retail, medical, industrial and transportation.

RFID tags can store a range of information from one serial number to several pages of data. Readers can be mobile so that they can be carried by hand, or they can be mounted on a post or overhead. Reader systems can also be built into the architecture of a cabinet, room, or building.

The RFID technology provided by CONTROLTEK ISS benefits retailers and consumers by easing the process of transactions, whether the purchase is made in a brick-and-mortar store or over the Internet.

This high-tech innovation can assist with security and tracking from the onset of manufacture, when RFID labels are printed and applied, and continue through delivery; stock-control; inventory-taking, and point of sale – where goods are registered at the checkout via RFID plates, and automatically removed from the stock list as a customer exists the shop; any items not registered at the checkout will activate the alarm.
