Learn why RFID-based EAS is your best defense against shrink

Retail crime remains one of the most serious threats facing the retail industry. “Shrink,” otherwise known as a reduction in inventory due to shoplifting, employee theft, or other errors, significantly impacts a retailer’s bottom line – to the tune of nearly $100 billion annually in direct losses worldwide. Regardless of where retail operations are located, shrink is a universal foe.That’s why retailers need to know what RFID-based Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) technology can do to help you strengthen your Loss Prevention Strategy and fight shrinkage.
