My daughter just started college recently and I wanted to get her something useful as a graduation/college present. I decided that I wanted to get her a computer for class so she could do homework, research, take notes and complete assignments easily. I did a lot of research to find the right computer for the job. I really wanted something with good memory, good battery life and something that was small enough to pack around with her. During this process I went to numerous stores looking at my options, reading reviews, and talking to associates about the different options available. During that process I noticed that the stores were tethering their store models, so you could manipulate the product and test it out. This was fine for me and seemed to work fine for the retailers, but when it came to buying the computer I noticed various security solutions used to protect their products. I felt that some were better than others, some being more convenient and timelier than others. As a member of the loss prevention world I have seen most of the security devices that are used to stop shoplifting. Many companies use the large security cable-wrap devices for their larger, more expensive items, such as: televisions, computers, stereo equipment etc. These are great devices that can work on various large or oddly shaped items, and come in various sizes. Although, these devices can be bulky and time consuming to apply and remove, which adds unwanted cost to the retailer and inconvenience to the customer. I have purchased products with these types of security devices in the past and have had limited success in getting out of the store in a timely manner. The last item I purchased was a television, which required a manager to come over to unlock and remove the device. I am sure this was their policy, but it was rather inconvenient for me to have to wait until they could locate a manager to respond. The other customers behind me weren’t all that happy either. I was pleasantly surprised on my most recent purchase, when I noticed they were using the Bug tag 2.
The bug tag 2 is a great way to protect computers, tablets and I-Pads from theft. These security devices are very versatile and can be attached to an item with an adhesive for easy application and removal. They can safely be applied directly to the computer, for display models, or to any box. The best part about this device is the disposable sled, which allows the tag to be re-used. Now you can retain the Bug tag 2 modules and simply replace the disposable adhesive sleds to save on cost. These items are equipped with 2 & 3 EAS alarm technology, which alerts associates to breaches and theft. These tags are designed to be small and less cumbersome, so customers can easily view, use and manipulate the device. These devices when used on floor models could allow your customers the opportunity to sit down with the product and become more familiar with the features and make an educated shopping decision. I know it was much more convenient than being tethered to a table, I can attest to that. These are very lightweight and provide a low cost solution in the fight to stop shoplifting.
The Bug tag 2 provides an efficient, unobtrusive, and cost-efficient means to protect your high end computer related equipment. Its small stature allows customers the ability to conveniently test the products while ensuring product safety. Obviously as retailers our goal is to stop shoplifting and sell merchandise, but often times those two goals conflict. This tag provides the ability to do both, while offering a re-useable sled to reduce cost, and increase profit.
