Many businesses find themselves at a point when the investment in clothing security measures becomes a harsh reality to them. They might have thought they could go without for a while but eventually the shrink numbers are just too high to avoid it any longer. This investment most often comes in the form of various security tags on clothes or clothing alarms. The use of clothing security tags is the primary security deterrent used by businesses worldwide. Clothing security tags also known as electronic article surveillance (EAS) tags provide the user with a physical theft deterrent, which can be used as a part of an overall loss prevention strategy.
These security tags on clothes can act as an active or passive security system. Many clothing security tags are used as an element to work in conjunction with an overall electronic article system. The electronic article systems also works with various clothing alarms, which can give an immediate notification of removal from the system. This notification is most often an audible clothing alarm that is triggered. As a passive system, clothing security tags present themselves as a visual deterrent to shoplifters. The application of clothing security tags will deter many if not the majority of shoplifters from your place of business.
While working for a major international retailer, I was involved in the planning and implementation of a clothing security strategy. This strategy was a response to an increase in shoplifting across our brand. After instituting the clothing security systems, which included clothing alarms and security tags on clothes the company noticed a drastic reduction in clothing theft and better profit margins at the store level. The use of clothing security had a large and positive impact on profit margins and moral for the company’s stores.
The use of clothing security can benefit both small and large retail businesses. It allows the business owner to control their loss and lower the bottom line. This can improve the business profit margins and create a safer environment for employees.
