Bartronics product of the month - asset protection.What is it?

August '99 Asset Management, EAS, RFID

Companies lose millions every year to assets 'walking out' of company premises, most of which is through people who are known to, or are employed by the company.

Many methods are used to get assets off the premises, ranging from telling the guards that it is being borrowed for the weekend, to using the company's own delivery or postal service to have the item sent to a friend's home, to be picked up later. With little or no documentation or false documentation, many of these schemes actually work and work well.

Computers and printers can be locked to tables but these are externally visible so remains possible to cut or disable such security measures. Also it means that the item cannot be moved to another office to be used there, without a degree of inconvenience. What is needed is a way of tagging these assets in such a way that they will produce a warning signal of some kind to guards at all the company's exit points. This tag should ideally be fitted internally to the item.

Bartronics has introduced its new Secure-it tag expressly for this purpose. These tags can be individually and uniquely coded so that each item can be allocated a different number, which can be differentiated at the digital receiver for instance. This helps inform the guard what to look out for. If need be a printed copy can be produced by using a print Rx**.

Many methods can be used to detect the warning signals at the exit points. The digital receiver and other products will be reviewed in future months in Hi-Tech Security Systems.
