Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of shrink management, merchandise visibility and apparel labeling solutions for the retail industry is launching MetalPoint™ HyperGuard™, a new digital, software-driven solution, which detects the most common tools such as foil bag or magnets used by organised retail crime (ORC) groups to shoplift in store.

With the latest Global Retail Theft Barometer showing an increase in losses associated with ORC, affecting some 47.5 percent of retailers globally, the MetalPoint HyperGuard was developed based on specific retailer feedback and gives loss prevention managers an additional tool to help identify potential shoplifters as soon as they enter the store.

The MetalPoint Hyperguard has three detection capabilities: foil bag detection, magnet detection*, and metal cart/trolley detection, all of which run concurrently to improve alarm reliability and deter organised criminals from using tactics to avoid detection.

A number of features help enhance the capabilities of the MetalPoint HyperGuard software solution. For example, the advanced digital 3D sensing technology will detect the metal in either foil lined bags or magnets and determine if a potential shoplifter has entered the store and by which entrance/exit. Metal shopping carts are also identified as such and no longer detected as a threat, thereby reducing the number of false alarms. Now store associates will receive a signal that an individual carrying a common shoplifting device has entered their store, allowing them to take the necessary precautions to avoid a potential theft.

.MetalPoint HyperGuard can be installed as a sleek, stand-alone pedestal alongside existing radio frequency electronic article surveillance EAS antennas, acting as a visual deterrent against ORC gangs or seamlessly integrated into Checkpoint’s EVOLVE family of antennas.

Farrokh Abadi, Checkpoint Systems’ President & Chief Operating Officer Shrink Management Solutions, said: “The new MetalPoint HyperGuard technology enhances the EAS detection offering retailers to identify potential shoplifters as they enter the stores. The solution will help retailers improve the availability of high-risk merchandise on the shelves and ensure a better shopping experience for consumers.”
