Speaking Out in a Pandemic – Rod Diplock

This interview originally appeared in Loss Prevention Magazine. Read the full article here.

At the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic, like most companies we approached it as we had approached past crises. Our preparedness and remote capabilities allowed us to provide uninterrupted, reliable, and responsive customer support. Our long-term relationships and constant communication with our supply chain partners allowed us to avoid disruptions. And our distribution centers, which are considered essential services, ensured employees followed safe and healthy measures while staying fully operational to deliver for our customers.

We quickly discovered this pandemic was unlike any other crisis any of us had experienced, and there was no playbook to navigate the unprecedented challenges. We stuck with the basics and focused on our core values. In everything we do at CONTROLTEK, we provide solutions that protect. We are the people that deliver, and our focus and commitment is devoted to our customers.

We kept business as usual delivering loss prevention solutions for our retail partners while also evaluating whether our customers needed different solutions to “protect” in this moment. The impact of this crisis increased the concern of protecting the health and safety of people, and we began to hear from our customers the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) such as hand sanitizer, masks, face shields, countertop shields, and gloves. We have provided essential security and operational supplies to our retail, banking, and logistics customers for many years. We were able to leverage our diverse supply chain to secure the vital PPE our customers were looking for from trusted sources. These relationships allowed us to also manage the costs as best we could with the current demand and deliver it very quickly for our customers.

We are extremely grateful for the partnerships that we have throughout the retail industry, and it has never been more important to us to provide our partners the support and solutions you need. We look forward to continuing to support those on frontlines in any way we can. As we begin to experience the new normal, we are here to collaborate and will continue to work diligently to offer resources, tools, and solutions to best support the retail industry.

CONTROLTEK’s New CMatch AI Health for Temperature Detection, Occupancy Verification and Mask Compliance

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (May. 7, 2020) – CONTROLTEK a leader in retail asset protection and security solutions, releases a new Health Compliance module of the CMatch AI computer vision platform providing non-contact preventative screening in light of the Coronavirus pandemic and increased concern for health safety.

“Powered by cutting edge, deep learning technology, the CMatch AI applications are extremely versatile allowing for features to be adjusted to adapt with new challenges,” said Tom Meehan, CFI, CONTROTLEK’s chief strategy officer and chief information security officer.  “The module offers temperature detection, mask compliance, and occupancy verification. We were able to adjust the platform’s thermal feature, originally programmed for early indication of fire, to screen and detect elevated body temperature. Additionally, the mask compliance feature designed to identify a person entering a facility with a mask as a robbery threat, has been adapted to detect a face mask for health compliance.”

Additional features include occupancy verification using facial recognition technology for unique customer counts and access control integration using temperature, mask compliance, or facial recognition as a proxy to precisely verify whether an individual is safe to enter a facility.

“This automation platform eliminates the need for human interaction to verify compliance supporting health safety, reducing labor costs, and providing real-time information,” said Rubin Press, the vice president of global sales at CONTROLTEK. “CMatch AI will help retailers reopen stores safely and streamline compliance with new COVID19 policies, while remaining adaptable for what changes may come with the future.”

The CMatch AI Health Compliance platform is scalable with the ability to operate as a standalone plug-and-play device or as a cloud solution to save information for enterprise-level monitoring. CONTROLTEK’s First Time Right™ systems deployment and professional services simplifies implementation for quick deployment.

Counterfeit Money Detection Equipment

Counterfeit Money Detection Equipment

Businesses in every industry are under the constant threat of receiving counterfeit money in exchange for goods and services. As you know, the government will not exchange counterfeit bills for real ones, and any losses associated with counterfeit currency must be written off as a loss due to theft. According to data compiled by the United States Department of Treasury, roughly $70 million in counterfeit bills are in circulation within the country. Protecting your bottom line means investing with a counterfeit money detection equipment company manufacturing the latest technology in detecting false bills. CONTROLTEK is known throughout the business world as the industry’s leading developer of counterfeit money detection technology, and offers a variety of products to help businesses improve their security.

Counterfeit Money Detection by CONTROLTEK

CONTROLTEK offers counterfeit money detection equipment for organizations that handle both large amounts of cash such as vaulted content, as well as smaller amounts of currency. Our solutions enable us to help our clients improve their counterfeit money detection operations, and we offer monetary counterfeit detection products for companies that are new to this security arm and are looking to learn more as they protect their bottom line. The majority of counterfeit bills made in America are $20 notes, and most counterfeiting rings in Europe produce $100 notes. Being able to keep these bills out of your internal circulation is critical to your company’s security and growth, so we offer counterfeit money detector pens and machines that help to weed out any unlawful notes.

Currency Authenticator Machines

CONTROLTEK understands that currency authenticator machines need to be easy to use and reliable, and that’s why we created the UVerifEYE Currency Authenticator for organizations handling large or small amounts of money. Many of our customers ask, how do currency authenticator machines work? Fake note detection is possible thanks to amplifier and comparator, UV LED, and photodiode technology. UV rays are transmitted by a UV LED source. If the currency is authentic that the note’s material will absorb a certain amount of the UV rays, and if the note is counterfeit then the UV rays will reflect up to the photodiode. Counterfeiters are not able to produce notes that can fool this technology, and when you call CONTROLTEK to learn more about the UVerifEYE Currency Authenticator, we can recommend how many units to purchase based on the amount of cash movement that come sin and goes out of your facilities.

The Best Counterfeit Detection Pen is the D-TEK

Organizations that handle smaller amounts of cash, or that have point of sales locations, will invest in a reliable counterfeit detection pen to place at every location where cash is received. The best counterfeit detection pen will contain an iodine solution that reacts with the starch molecules contained in the standard wood-based paper, leaving a dark brown smudge–a clear sign that the bill is a counterfeit. The linen and cotton fibers in actual currency will not react with the iodine solution, and therefore no visual change will occur on the note.

There are certain visual cues one can take away from holding bills up to the light in order to determine if they are real or fake. However, this places a great deal of strain on employees, and the repetitive action causes fatigue and as a result human error is common. Using a counterfeit detection pen is a fast, reliable way to search for fake notes while protecting your organization’s reputation and profitability.

Invest in the Best Currency Counter Cleaning Cards

Currency counter cleaning cards by CONTROLTEK have a patented design that cleans all surfaces around the rollers and belts, as well as the note recognition lenses in order to remove debris and particles enabling machine accuracy. One form of internal theft that companies face is when employees tamper with currency counters to mask the true number of bills being counted. This can be done by sprinkling fine lead particles from pencil shavings, or other similar types of debris. By regularly running currency counter cleaning cards through your equipment, you can significantly reduce this security threat, while simultaneously improving accuracy and productivity.

Counterfeit Money Detection Equipment by CONTROLTEK Should be Part of Your Security Strategy

Whether you manage a bank or a retail environment, investing in counterfeit money detection equipment like currency authenticator machines, a counterfeit detection pen for employees that handle cash, and currency counter cleaning cards will help to protect your bottom line, help you maintain a positive reputation, extend the life of your equipment, and aid in hitting your revenue goals by minimizing losses. Call CONTROLTEK today, and our team will assist you in selecting the best solution for your business needs.

Whether you are handling large amounts of cash in the vault or smaller amounts at the teller station, CONTROLTEK has a solution for counterfeit money detection. If your organization has trouble with counterfeit money detection or wants to learn how to tell if a $100 bill is real, our machines and counterfeit money detecting pens also known as  fake money pens are the best solution. Here are just some of our most popular products we offer. If you don’t see what you are looking for, contact us and we will be happy to source it for you.

Tamper Evident Security Seals and Security Labels for Retail Stores

Retail theft is a serious problem faced by retail chains, superstores and grocery stores throughout the country. The National Retail Federation states that more than 45 billion dollars are lost every year due to inventory shrinkage. Shoplifting, internal theft, organized retail crime and fraud can have devastating effects on a retail store’s profit margins, and can also create a toxic work environment  for employees and leave customers with a negative shopping experience.

CONTROLTEK offers proactive strategies for identifying, tracking and combating retail crime. While we are known primarily for our core products, tamper evident security seals and security labels are, unfortunately, often overlooked by retail management security and management teams, but they are much-needed. Retailers recognize that CONTROLTEK is the best company offering security seals and security labels for retail stores, and we always evolve our products to keep current with modern technology and national inventory shrinkage data, ensuring we offer our clients the best products and value within the landscape of retail security products.

What Types of Tamper Evident Security Seals are Available to Retailers?

Tamper evident security seals, such as our j-Lok Pull 8’’ Pull-tight Seals are important anti-theft products that come with a built-in tear-off feature requiring no tools or special training for removal, and they have a small strap diameter making them ideal for machines with smaller sealing apertures. These seals are used in a wide variety of retail applications, as well as C-TPAT and logistic circumstances. Our tamper evident security seals come in a variety of colors that include white, yellow, blue, green and red allowing team members to use them for coding and organizational purposes. Furthermore, each one is numbered and has a barcode to meet a wide variety of needs, and they come in a number of styles.

Another popular type of tamper evident security seals designed by CONTROLTEK is the m-Lok Padlock Seal. These seals are numbered tamper evident security seals, in the padlock design, and meet the rigorous standards and approval of the U.S. Customs. Each m-Lok Padlock Seal has durable metal hasps allowing it to withstand any abuse that might occur in transit, and it is water-resistant giving it an extra layer of security. Each of these tamper evident security seals come with the option of barcoding, and they are individually numbered.

When it comes to tamper evident security seals for protecting cash being transported to and from Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), CONTROLTEK has designed the ArrowLok ATM Cassette Seals. Our ATM security seals attach very easily and quickly while deterring theft. These ATM security products are ideal for any setting where ATMs are operated. These tamper evident security seals for ATM use work quite simply, yet they are highly effective at preventing theft. The ArrowLok ATM Cassette Seals are a single piece made from heavy duty plastic where the capsule is affixed to a locking anchor by a durable thread. When the capsule is under pressure and the anchor is inserted, one cannot remove it without leaving a clear sign that the device was tampered with.

If you are looking for tamper evident security seals that are extremely durable and adjustable, our all metal construction cable seals are likely your best option. Each seal has a visible number that can’t be missed, along with a noticeable barcode for fast, simple detection. The cable is very easy to use and can be adjusted to fit a broad range of sizes.

These are only a few of the tamper evident security seals designed by CONTROLTEK. We have a number of types to fit any need, and our team of experts are standing by to help you choose the best security seals to meet your needs.

What are Security Labels?

There are many retail management teams that have yet to hear about security labels. In fact, many wonder how something as seemingly simple as a label can help deter theft. A security label is a type of sticker label that serves the purpose of improving a product’s security when it is applied. Security labels can act as a visual deterrent, and they can be used to trace and track an item’s location. Security labels can also be used to help prevent counterfeiting, and it also serves the purpose of proving that it (and therefore the product) has not been tampered with, as one can easily tell by looking at a security label if someone attempted to remove it.

CONTROLTEK’S tamper evident security labels have a number of retail uses, but they are also used by ATM machine operators and at gas stations. CONTROLTEK takes security labels to the next level; these tamper evident security products reveal a specialized void message when tampered with or removed. The majority of our clients that invest in our tamper evident security labels use them for file cabinets, drawers, ATM cassettes, fuel pumps, electronic equipment (like POS credit card machines), and other uses that span a broad range of industries. These security labels can be used on virtually any surface including, wood, metal, plastic, glass, and paper. Our security labels offer exceptional tracking with sequential barcodes and numbers that aid in making your internal team more efficient with their daily operations.
