Embark on a journey from source to store at EuroShop 2011

Checkpoint Systems, Hall 6, booth C40, EuroShop, D üsseldorf, 26 February –2 March 2011

Checkpoint Systems, the global leader in shrink management, merchandise visibility and apparel labeling solutions, will be exhibiting its latest source-to-store solutions at EuroShop 2011.

On show, at the 300m2 booth, will be innovative solutions which help retailers reduce loss, improve their bottom line and provide inventory visibility from source to store.

Rafael Alegre, VP and GM Europe Customer Management at Checkpoint Systems, commented: “EuroShop is the must-attend event of the year. Twenty-first century retailing is changing and now, more than ever, retailers are looking to ensure their supply chain is as efficient as possible. 

“In this competitive global sector, it is vital that retailers make the most of every single opportunity afforded to them. Driving efficiency, minimising loss and increasing on-shelf availability to maximise sales will be key to driving business success and delivering greater profitability in years to come. We at Checkpoint are working closely with leading retailers to bring efficient solutions to these industry challenges.”

The company’s Merchandise Visibility solutions involve introducing RFID technology at the point of manufacture so that retailers can track the movement of goods throughout the retail chain, from source to store, enabling them to reduce out-of-stocks, reduce working capital requirements, and increase sales.

At EuroShop 2011, visitors to the company’s booth will benefit from an exciting demonstration of Checkpoint’s “out-of-the-box” Handheld Visibility Solution, for closed-loop apparel retailers and department stores. The new solution is designed to quickly and easily ensure that products are always available on the shelves for consumers to buy.

The event will also show the latest Apparel Labeling Solutions which provide retailers and apparel manufacturers with the right labels, tags and trim items for their branding, identification and security needs.

In addition, Checkpoint Systems will be showcasing its end-to-end Shrink Management solutions. Visitors will be able to discover the world’s smallest Clear RF label, which was recently launched to protect small, thin, un-carded cosmetics and other high-value merchandise.

Also on show are Checkpoint’s EVOLVE ECO EAS antennas. The technology provides dramatic energy savings of up to 75 percent over other leading technologies. Additionally, the CheckPro Software Suite assists with visitor counting, providing an accurate comparison of trading performance over ‘like-for-like’ periods as well as EAS system compliance.

Checkpoint is able to provide retailers with a total, unique solution for reducing shrink, increasing shelf availability, ensuring labeling consistency and achieving operational excellence.

Rafael Alegre concluded: “We are very excited about exhibiting at EuroShop. We will be presenting innovative solutions which help retailers to grow their businesses – profitably.”

Checkpoint Systems will be exhibiting at Hall 6, booth C40 at EuroShop 2011, Fairground Düsseldorf from Saturday 26 February - Wednesday 2 March.
