Specialists in your speciality
Every individual retailer has their own concerns, their own products and their own customers. Checkpoint is uniquely positioned to understand the specific needs of the specialised retailer , because our unparalleled range of solutions and long experience working closely with our clients gives us the insight and flexibility needed to add value to your shop or business.
The retail industry is increasingly fragmented and competitive. Specialist retailers know their market and what is important to them: customer service, low overheads and product identification solutions that cut back loss from shrinkage and greatly increase the reliability of supply chain management . Let Checkpoint visit your shop for a full and individualised breakdown of the solutions that could make a difference to you: solutions that quickly pay for themselves by protecting your store and improving your stock identification systems
The key to customer service
Your staff needs to be free to attend to customers’ needs, not tied up with laborious product protection duties, stock-control and slow deactivation at point of sale. Checkpoint’s advanced product identification solutions means you need fewer staff, and the staff you have will be able to dedicate more time to customers.
Our product protection solutions also help to increase confidence in your staff and make sure that they understand their role in tackling the problem of shrinkage from theft in your shop. Checkpoint’s total solutions offer training for staff to make them aware of the security challenges that face retailers and the logistics of product identification. Checkpoint’s advanced technologies can radically cut back your labour costs and make your store look better and run more smoothly. Put labelling on the supply-side
It is difficult to overstate the importance of branding in the competitive retail environment of today. Checkpoint’s branding solutions are designed to put the power of quality merchandising into the hands of retailers, whether it be through quality apparel tagging, in-store merchandising or product labelling solutions that can make a real difference to sales in your shop.
Checkpoint’s labelling solutions are a global point of reference for the apparel industry and major distributors who need a quick, economical and attractive ticketing service
“Say goodbye to safety-stock”
Manufacturers are increasingly aware of the need to minimise inventory and maximise product flow. Checkpoint’s production line automation and warehouse management solutions are designed to speed up the manufacturing process and increase supply-chain efficiency by providing the power of product identification. Checkpoint’s Stock Control solutions make sure stock responds precisely to needs in order to play an active role in the supply chain.
A busy retail operation relies on up-to-the-minute information about deliveries, stock and sales to keep turnover and replenishment in motion. These days, consumers have a lot of choice about where to buy their products and they will always choose the place that provides on-shelf availability and the newest products on the market. The two enemies of any retailer are empty shelves and overstuffed ‘back rooms’ and streamlining stock is only possible when you have the best product identification solutions at your fingertips. Real-time stock control and non-line of sight product ID are just two of the benefits of Checkpoint’s cutting-edge technologies
The total information solution
Good product identification is the key to playing an active and responsive role in the supply chain. Checkpoint are global leaders in providing solutions for manufacturers and distributors who need to keep track of products, giving their businesses speed, efficiency and the information necessary to respond to the needs of consumers.
To move goods safely and efficiently you need to know where they are at every stage of their journey, from point of origin to delivery. Checkpoint’s tracking solutions have been developed to integrate technology and add value across the whole supply chain, giving you the ability to speed up deliveries, organise your transport services and gain total information about the situation of your products.
Replace guesswork with real-time information
Improving logistics software and investing in effective product identification technology is a sensible step towards cutting back the operating costs that arise from over-staffing and shrinkage. Updating your product identification and data capture software will soon translate into tangible benefits for your company.
Optimise your ability to anticipate unexpected increases in demand from your distributors using new technologies that can give you vital information, right up to point of sale. Checkpoint offers software and logistical solutions that will give you the power to anticipate and respond to real sales information, making sure that ‘stock-outs’ are a thing of the past and your products stay out on the shop floor and in reach of customers.
Plan, control, implement
Checkpoint’s logistical solutions add value to your business by giving you the power to plan and control the flow of goods and materials throughout the manufacturing process and into the hands of customers – cutting-back on unexpected phenomena, rationalising your labour force and making sure you can respond quickly to the demands of your distributors.
Supply chain forecasting and a real-time view of your production schedule optimises your logistics, while integrated product identification solutions can help to greatly improve efficiency at both ends of the supply-chain. Efficient logistics keep your stock in constant movement and streamlines the supply chain, maximising productivity and keeping shelves stocked.
Win the battle against shrinkage
A small minority of customers steal, but they can have a major impact on your profit margins. Not only can customer theft account for 48% of revenue loss (2003, European Theft Barometer), it also has a negative effect on your business due to ‘defensive’ merchandising and obtrusive ‘hard tags’ that can detract from the look of your products. Checkpoint’s advanced security solutions are proven to cut down on customer theft by up to 60%.
Protecting large retail outlets that stock a wide-range of products provides a special challenge when fighting retail shrinkage, especially when this kind of retail environment is often the most tempting target for shoplifters. Checkpoint has been applying the latest Radio Frequency (RF) technologies to shrinkage solutions since its foundation in 1968, providing breakthroughs like the first integrated Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) tags, 3rd Generation EAS and the development of Rfid technology.
Ordering mistakes can account for up to 18% of loss from shrinkage. A modern business needs an efficient ordering system that anticipates stock fluctuations, makes sure your customers find what they want and come back again when they are looking for something else.
Point your customers in the right direction
Good retail is about providing the opportunities that stimulate your customers to make the right choices. Effective in-store merchandising is an essential step towards increasing the appeal of products and pointing your customers in the right direction.
Checkpoint has a wide variety of labelling solutions tailored to your specific needs, which means that you can shift labelling to the supply side to gain significant cost and time benefits.
