Silpo Partners With Checkpoint Systems For Flagship Hypermarket
Checkpoint Systems has partnered with Silpo – one of the largest food supermarket chains in Ukraine – to install a suite of high-performance technologies in its newly-opened flagship outlet in Kiev.
Silpo has chosen the G35 antenna – part of Checkpoint’s EVOLVE iRange family – to meet its need for state-of-the-art technology combined with a stylish design at the checkouts and self-checkout areas.
In addition, it has installed the NP10 antenna at store entrances and exits. The NP10 features NEO technology, to boost the standard detection range by up to 35%, enabling retailers to increase the distance between each antenna to 2.2 metres – the widest aisle width available in the retail industry for RF capabilities.
The new NP10 is specially designed for supermarkets and big-box retailers, offering a less intrusive, lightweight and more contemporary look with an award-winning design.
The combination of the two antennas allows Silpo to connect to online platforms and reporting, which guarantees remote control, maintenance and reporting of the security system.
Planning For The Future
David Pradas of Checkpoint explained, “The opportunity for Silpo to explore remote connectivity in the future means the EAS investment is maximised for the future. If they decide to look to this in the future, Checkpoint can provide a live system health check and online service support, while alarm-related data can be synchronised to the cloud to provide real-time actionable insights.”
In April 2019, Checkpoint Systems and Bizerba Ukraine, a leading solution provider and system integrator for retailers in Ukraine, signed a strategic partnership agreement to fulfil Silpo's needs and requirements in anti-theft and loss prevention solutions in all of its new stores, including installation and maintenance services.
Taras Nikolaienko of Silpo, said, "We’ve chosen Checkpoint Systems for its technological capabilities and reputation for high quality and great design.
"Opening this flagship store requires us to install the best solutions on the market to optimise the customer experience. Silpo offers a premium range of goods sold in stylish surroundings, so it was important to us that we also installed technology that would sit well in the outlets.”
