Source Tagging is the process of embedding an EAS label into a product’s primary packaging or into the product itself at the point of manufacture. The process leads to greater retail chain efficiencies, increased sales, lower shrink and higher profitability.

Source Tagging evolved from over 40 years of EAS excellence for the retail industry. As part of the industry’s continuous growth initiatives, retailers require more efficient and foolproof methods of protecting their goods from shoplifters, and reducing the labor costs associated with EAS tagging. Today, Sensormatic® is the global leader of Source Tagging with retail stores receiving over 4.5 billion products source tagged at the point of manufacture.

SuperTag® VST is applied at the manufacturing source to a broad range of soft goods, so retailers can devote their time and energy to serving customers instead of tagging merchandise in the store.
