Checkpoint's Merchandise Visibility Solution

Checkpoint’s Merchandise Visibility Solution leverages the combined strengths of the company’s capabilities in shrink management to deliver a complete solution to enable retailers to address their critical inventory management needs.

Labels and Delivery
Checkpoint RFID tags can be delivered to the customer factory location using the Check-Net service bureau leveraging print shops worldwide. The tags can be applied directly to merchandise so they can be read through the supply chain.

Hardware and Software
As tagged merchandise passes through a portal or is scanned by a hand-held reader, information about the garment’s location is captured by the OAT RFID software, verified against expected quantities and descriptions, and fed into a retailer’s inventory management system for real-time insight and action.
