Tyco Retail Solutions is showcasing its Sensormatic Synergy Series, a finalist for "Best New Product" Award, at RFID Journal LIVE! in Orlando, FL from 3-5 May.
This next-generation portfolio of intelligent, modular and network-enabled detection systems brings together RFID, Acousto-Magnetic (AM), traffic and video analytics technologies. By leveraging the power of multiple technologies connected in one system, the Sensormatic Synergy Series helps retailers optimise store performance, while enhancing loss prevention capabilities.
The system provides a clear and cost-effective migration path for retailers from electronic article surveillance (EAS) to RFID technology, driving increased store intelligence, optimal retailer value and real-time visibility. The system's advanced RFID functionality provides item-level inventory and storefront shrink visibility, supplying retailers with the on-demand data needed to operate more efficiently and profitably. This data can work in tandem with IP video for post-event forensic analysis and strategic loss prevention planning. RFID-enabled real-time item visibility provides operational and sales benefits as well, with quicker replenishment of stolen items, and immediate response to potential loss events as they happen.
The Sensormatic Synergy Series seamlessly integrates a host of interconnected devices in a single network-ready detection system to maximise existing investments and better manage shrink. Its data intelligence capabilities offer a building block to future internet of things (IoT) applications and sync with Tyco's TrueVUE reporting platform. Deployed to retailers worldwide, Synergy has achieved significant momentum with over 5,000 installations.
"With Synergy, retailers get it all in one intelligent, modular and scalable detection system," said Nancy Chisholm, President, Tyco Retail Solutions. "Harnessing the power of RFID, Synergy's connected devices capture smart data to give retailers enterprise-wide visibility into key operational areas to drive sales, profitability and better store performance. We're honoured RFID Journal has chosen Synergy as an award finalist in this year's "Best New Product" category, bringing the next generation of RFID innovation to retail."
