• What is AsseTAG?
The AsseTAG loss prevention pen is a unique new product solution offered in the battle against Organized Retail Crime (ORC). The idea is quite simple: mark your products with a unique “tag” which allows you to identify where in the supply chain your goods are being stolen.
The tag can be created with either visible ink or invisible ink.
• How does AsseTAG work?
Customized tags are designed to allow you to mark specific goods with an identifier that can be detected by your staff. Marks can be designed to your specification, to show store-number, warehouse or distribution center location, or any other mark that you wish to utilize to aid you in your loss prevention investigations.
Marks can be made “invisible”, so that they are only detectable when viewed using specialized light-sources and/or viewing lenses. Or, they can be made visible to deter theft by shoplifters and boosters.
AsseTAG inks are designed to be highly resistant to removal efforts using commonly available detergents and solvents.
• When should I use visible ink?
Visible ink is effective for situations in which you want to deter shoplifters. Visible tags warn shoplifters that stolen inventory can be directly tied to your store, deterring shoplifting in the first place.
AsseTAG's visible ink highly-resistant to being removed by mechanical efforts and by most commonly found detergents and solvents. Attempted removal typically results in damage to the product and/or packaging. The loss in profits from damaged stolen goods deters shoplifting in the first place as well.
• When should I use invisible ink?
Invisible ink is effective for situations in which you want to conduct loss prevention investigations. Even when stolen goods are recovered by law enforcement, unless you can prove the goods clearly came from your store, you likely will not be able to lay claim to those goods. Invisible tags allow goods to be traced back to specific stores, allowing stolen items to be placed back into inventory.
Just like visible ink, invisible ink is highly-resistant to being removed by mechanical efforts and by most commonly found detergents and solvents. Attempted removal typically results in damage to the product and/or packaging.
