Checkpoint Systems Expands Health and Beauty RFID Label Portfolio For Improved Merchandise Visibility
THOROFARE, NJ – April 28, 2016 – Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CKP), a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced that it has expanded its portfolio of RFID labels for health and beauty products with its new Compass RFID label for improved inventory management.
The Compass addresses the specific inventory management challenges presented with the round-shaped SKUs and tightly packed merchandising displays that are ubiquitous in health and beauty categories. The Compass, and its previously released RAIN RFID labels – the Eye wear tag, Micro, Whisper and Slim – cover the full range of health and beauty products, allowing retailers to tag more merchandise than ever before in order to maximize their inventory visibility.
The ISO18000-6C compliant Compass is a 48mm diameter round-shaped RFID label that is designed with the M4D integrated chip from Impinj, tamper proof with strategic placement on packages and delivers high read-rate performance in semi-automated physical inventory control and RFID as EAS. These designs are tuned for best performance in FCC frequency and ETSI frequency for Europe.
“Our ongoing relationship with Checkpoint continues to deliver new solutions that enable retailers to gain ItemIntelligenceSM information on a wide-array of items, which now includes cosmetics and beauty products,” said Craig Cotton, Impinj Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. “The Compass label uses the Monza 4D True3D™ technology to deliver higher data reliability and accuracy in any direction, which is crucial for resolving challenging retail deployments.”
“The Compass RFID label is another validation of our commitment to expand coverage for health, beauty and cosmetics categories,” said Uwe Sydon, Senior Vice President of Innovation, Checkpoint Systems. “Designed for optimal performance, the new Compass will help health and beauty retailers lower out of stocks and boost inventory visibility.”
