On the Right Track Towards Retail Theft Prevention?

According to the 2015 Retail Theft Survey published by the National Retail Federation (NRF), retail shrink averaged 1.38% of sales, resulting in $44 billion in losses.  The increase in repeat shoplifters, employee theft, and other fraudulent activities may seem overwhelming. However, there are solutions to help retailers better manage inventory shrink.

Innovation That Excites

With industry leading innovation, CONTROLTEK, in partnership with Nedap Retail, offers not only !D Top state-of-the-art integrated readers, but also the new !D Hand 2 RFID handheld reader which allows retailers to scan and inventory thousands of products in a matter of minutes.

The !D Hand 2 is specifically designed for RFID applications in retail stores for cycle counts, goods receiving, product replenishment and tag commissioning. The handheld reader sets itself apart from traditional RFID handheld readers through a number of unique characteristics, which makes the use of RFID more accessible and scalable: one-button operation, lightweight design, Bluetooth-enabled, and barcode scanner equipped.

The !D Hand 2 works together with iOS and Android mobile devices, supporting the trend of a large increase in the amount of mobile devices already used in the store for other tasks. Whenever staff members want to perform an RFID-related task, they can simply take the !D Hand, pair it with their mobile device and start the task.

“We have already integrated the !D Hand into our ControlSpan application,” states Kris Doane, Director of Product Management at CONTROLTEK. ”It was very easy to do the integration with the SDK supplied and best of all our customers are really impressed with the user-friendliness and performance of this Bluetooth reader, not to mention the increased visibility of their inventory, which allows them to better service their customers.”

ControlSpan™ is an Inventory & Process Management Solution that also provides better insight into areas of shrink beyond external theft.
