HONG KONG, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Visitors to Retail Technology Show Asia 2016, being held from 20-21 April in Singapore will have the opportunity to hear from  Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP) and see first-hand the latest merchandise visibility solutions that can help retailers reduce out-of-stocks and on-hand inventory throughout the supply chain all the way from the manufacturer to the store.

Checkpoint System's enhanced merchandise visibility solution with new labeling and RFID (radio frequency identification) technology enable manufacturers to apply RFID-based tags at the point of manufacture cost-effectively. These RFID tags can be read throughout the supply chain, and enable each product to be tracked or located individually. Information about the product's location is automatically captured and verified against expected quantities in real time at the manufacturing facility, warehouse or store. This information is used to optimize inventory levels and shelf availability, enabling retailers to meet customer demand, improve operations, enhance customer experience, cut costs and increase sales.

Exhibiting at booth T05 at the Suntec Convention Centre, Checkpoint Systems will showcase its latest solutions, including:

  • range of RFID-based tags and labels;
  • S3i ShelfNet™, a scalable, wireless network that provides critical data and analytic intelligence such as inventory quantity in real time that enable retailers to gain new insights into shelf activity and understand customer demand;
  • EVOLVE-Store series, involving a real-time app that provides real-time visibility on merchandise and shopper numbers by managing response times to alarm events;
  • MetalPoint™ HyperGuard™ solution, a digital based software solution that can detect foil-lined clothing or bags used by organized retail crime operations and prevent theft by alerting staff. It can be seamlessly integrated into Checkpoint's EVOLVE family of antenna.

Mark Gentle, Vice President -- Merchandise Availability Solutions, Asia Pacific at Checkpoint Systems, will deliver a speech titled "It's all about the data -- how Sensor Data Drives Responsive Retail" at the event. Speaking on 20 April, he will discuss how critical merchandise-related data that is collected from RFID sensors can be analyzed and used to enhance supply chain visibility and improve business processes for retailers.
