decided to replace its EAS systems with RF EAS
in a chainwide rollout.
Retailers are actively expanding their RF EAS
source tagging as a way to reduce shrink and simultaneously lay the foundation for RFID.
It specializes in source protection of consumer goods, RF EAS
(Electronic Article Surveillance), RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and merchandising solutions.
Checkpoint's RF EAS
systems are already being used by major retailers worldwide such as Ahold, Albertson's, Auchan, Big W, Carrefour, Casino, Champion, Coop Italy, Despar, Eckerd Corporation, El Corte Ingles, Euromercato, Intermarche, La Rinascente, Kohl's Department Stores, Mercadona, Obi, Rite Aid Corporation, Target Corporation, Toys "R" Us, and Walgreen Co.
Checkpoint is a leading provider of digital RF EAS

Checkpoint is a leading provider of digital RF EAS and RFID systems, RF source tagging, barcode labelling systems, hand-held labelling systems, and retail merchandising systems.
These include the Gen3(TM) activatable RF EAS tag for source tagging, and ExpressTrak(TM) chipless RFID tags, which will offer intelligence for about 10 cents per tag.
Additionally, RF EAS allows for simultaneous price scanning and tag deactivation at the point of sale.
The new technologies are expected to significantly enhance the value of RF EAS systems and offer new growth opportunities.
Electronic Signatures(R) Technologies include three distinct, high-value tag platforms: 1) Gen(3)(TM) - triple state; off-on-off activatable RF EAS tags for source tagging 2) ExpressTrak(TM) chipless RFID tags; ultra-low cost read-only intelligent tags 3) Performa(R) RFID tags with an integrated chip (IC) on board
