Source Tagging

Tagging products with EAS security labels is a proven method to reduce shrink, which can lead to increased sales. 

Some products that come into retailer’s stores are already tagged. The benefits of source tagging are proven, and to maximise them, retailers can expand the population of tagged products by implementing their own source tagging programme.


Source tagging is the application of security labels at the point of manufacture. Moving the tagging process away from stores to source provides consistent protection that meets compliance standards. 

By applying the label consistently on the product, retailers increase their chances of providing an appealing customer experience. 

Brand and product integrity are not compromised by inconsistent and random EAS label applications.

Source tagging is ultimately about control. For example, controlling the type of tag applied and where it is applied on the product. 

It also allows retailers to track, measure, and monitor products across the entire scope of their supply chain. 

Rather than waiting for the products to be delivered to the store or DC before they can be tagged, tagging them at the source means no gaps in supply chain visibility.
