So your company has just gone out and made an investment, purchasing a great number of clothing security tags. All of your shoplifting problems are solved, right? Eh, not so much. See, security is like anything else in business, you have to be vigilant and steadfast in your approach to it if you intend to succeed. Simply purchasing the right widget won’t guarantee success. Maximizing the potential of that widget will, however, greatly improve your chances.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into a clothing retailer and noticed that they use clothing security tags . As I browse through the racks searching for the right size and color of a particular garment I notice that only about 50-70% of the merchandise is tagged. If I was a thief I’d simply pick one of the pieces that weren’t tagged. So at this point the whole process is an exercise in futility. How does this happen? Easier than you might imagine. Let’s say Jimmy runs your receiving department. It’s his team’s job to ensure all appropriate merchandise is tagged before it goes to the sales floor. Unfortunately, Jimmy is sick with the flu, or maybe he just took a couple of days off. Now while the cat’s away the mice will play.
The wrong merchandise gets tagged or maybe Jimmy’s team just completely ignores this step in the receiving process. Either way you now have merchandise on your sales floor that’s ripe for the taking. There needs to be a check and balance system and periodic audits in place to ensure 2 things. First of all, whether Jimmy is there or not, that no garment sees the sales floor before it is checked to ensure it is either tagged or that tagging isn’t necessary. Second, someone needs to be tasked with going through the sales floor and ensuring that the first process is being followed. A chain is only as strong as its’ weakest link and clothing security tags are only as useful as you’re determined to make them.
