Here at Maxtag, we have spent 20 years specialising in the sales and installation of retail security tags and CCTV systems for business operations of all shapes and sizes. Each of our retail security solutions are designed to not only reduce the amount of theft that occurs within your store but also works to improve the safety of staff and customers alike, setting a good in-store atmosphere. Our anti-theft, loss prevention and analytics technology can ensure that your business doesn't lose its hard-earned profits through any kind of criminal activity.
Being one of the UK's leading retail security providers, we are able to work with you in order to create a truly bespoke security solution that will suit your store's location, its layout and its business aims. It's this attention to detail that has seen many of our clients reap the benefits of a high quality, security installation.
Able to be placed on the inside or the outside of products or their packaging, retail security tags are designed to set off an alarm at the point of the store's exit, detecting a likely theft. The field of monitoring is provided by a security system – such as a pedestal system – which gives off a frequency that 'looks' for the tags. This gives the system an opportunity to detect any tags before they are taken out of the store – giving staff ample opportunity to stop the shoplifter.
The tags are able to be detached or deactivated by specialist tools at their point of purchase, so to ensure that any genuine customers aren't placed in any potentially embarrassing situations as they leave the store. Able to be used on almost any type of product imaginable, whether it's clothing, drinks or DVDs, their wide range of use by retailers should show how effective they are.
If you've never used a tagging system before, then it's understandable if you find the process of choosing the right one for your store, daunting. We at Maxtag are able to offer you a wide and varying ranging of tagging systems that are designed to ensure that your store has the ideal retail security solution for its needs.
The perfect retail security tags to use will depend on the type of products that your store offers. For example, soft material products such as clothing and bags will be ideally suited to tags that resonate at 66Khz or 58Khz, whilst harder material products, such as DVD's, pharmaceuticals and any other products that require packaging, are best served by tags that can resonate up to 8.2Mhz.
Recently, we have launched a brand-new tagging system that offers a versatile, yet a high-quality range of security – Scorpion. If you have any existing tagging systems that suffer from poor performance, thanks to any interference or environmental issues, then it's likely that shoplifting will continue to happen. Once your store garners a reputation as having poor security, the losses will continue to mount up – this is something that can be stopped with Scorpion security tags.
Available in three different types – dependent on your individual needs – the Scorpion tag can be used on a wide range of products.
The three types are:
Unlike other types of tags, Scorpion tags are able to work with any existing pedestal, underfloor or loop systems, no matter the frequency type, over a much larger area. With many older types of security tags being somewhat easy to deactivate – in fact many 'official' deactivators have been traded over the internet – the need for a unique tagging system has grown. Maxtag's Scorpion tags can only be deactivated by a unique device, which aside from not being commercially available anywhere else, only responds to unique codes – meaning that an individual store can set their own code for their tags, to ensure a comprehensive security tagging solution.
To put it simply, there is no other robust, more versatile tagging system on the market than the Scorpion.
At Maxtag, we are able to offer comprehensive security solutions for a wide range of different retail outlets – an ideal, secure retail environment can be achieved by a mixture of retail security tags and video surveillance. If any criminal or anti-social situations occur in-store, high-quality CCTV will be able to obtain reliable evidence, even as the security tags alert you to theft.
If you would like more information on how we can help your business, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us today. Our professional security team will be on hand to answer any questions or concerns that you may have regarding your store's security.
“When Maxtag introduced us to their Cloud Analytics software, we were very impressed. The user interface was simple to use and easy to understand. Since installing it over many stores we now understand more about our customers behaviour in store. How they move around our retail space. This information is invaluable in helping us plan the layout of our stores.”
