ibTech understood the importance of total solutions in shrinkage protection that are seamlessly engaged and centrally monitored in modern-day retailing environments. We take responsibility and accountability to create complete loss prevention solutions protecting nearly everything in the store, where the customers do not have to compromise on their shopping experience.
Electronic Article Surveillance
Traditionally Electronic Article Surveillance equipment helped retailers as a deterrent against inventory shrinkage caused by intentional shoplifting though they were subject to limitations. Over the years Nedap R&D was able to eliminate almost everything bringing the systems to an essential part of a self-service retail store regardless of its class, balancing the aesthetics as well as technology. Today together with Nedap, ibTech is able to offer EAS solutions that can satisfy any complex inventory shrinkage prevention solutions starting with the basic standalone units to totally integrated, multi-location, almost endless numbers which can be monitored from one central point.
Nedap offers stylish RF EAS antennas with integrated advertising panels, customer counting and metal detection, without making the presence of the system an eyesore. . The high-performance RF EAS systems are equipped with Patented Orientation Independent Detection (OID) technology for unprecedented detection performance and detection of RF EAS tags in every possible orientation.
Intelligent Article Surveillance (IAS)
With a unique technology breakthrough, Nedap revolutionized the very concept of traditional EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) systems transforming them into Intelligent Article Surveillance (IAS). The electronics are replaced by digital and totally software driven opening up huge possibilities therefore the iSense product range was born. Synchronized with accessories such as Nedap Smart Sensors, and Smart Deactivators iSense is a new benchmark that is set by Nedap in the retail loss prevention industry that no competition could stand up against so far.
The IAS concept becomes more real with the implementation of RFID in retail. The systems come with RFID ready hardware and more or less immediately become part of an intelligent set-up. Retails worldwide unanimously agree that the non-availability of stock on the store shelves is one major reason for lost opportunities. Item-level RFID offers retailers full control over their stock and enables retailers to optimize the stock accuracy to over 98%. Using RFID at the item level, retailers remove the guesswork from the shop floor and successfully prevent out-of-stocks, overstocks and losses.
