3. Improve inventory management and tracking
Anti-theft tags can improve inventory tracking and management by providing a unique identification code or symbol for each item. This identification code can be used to quickly locate and identify specific items in inventory, making them easier to track and manage.
For example, if a company uses a computerized inventory management system, the identification code can be entered into the system to quickly retrieve information on the item, such as its location, quantity and status.
This can help improve the efficiency and accuracy of inventory management, as staff can quickly and easily access the information they need to make informed inventory decisions. In addition, the use of anti-theft tags can help prevent inventory errors and discrepancies, as the identification code can be used to accurately track the movement of items around the company. All in all, anti-theft tags can be a valuable tool for improving inventory tracking and management.
How do these anti-theft markings work?
Anti-theft markings are designed to be virtually impossible to remove without destroying the item. One way of achieving this is through the use of a red chemical fingerprint, which is applied to the item using a special marker or label.
In addition, these anti-theft markings can include an indelible message such as “stolen equipment”, which can further reduce the resale value of stolen goods by warning potential buyers that the item is traceable and that its possession may be illegal.
Anti-theft markings also include a unique identification number which is stored in a database. In North America and Europe, this database is known as I3RS (International Internet Identification and Recovery Service).
If someone tries to sell a stolen item that has been marked with this identification number, the buyer can consult the I3RS database to check. If the item is listed as stolen, the buyer can report the theft to the authorities.
