Sensormatic announces global offering of RFID source tagging solutions

June 11, 2024
With the RFID Services Bureaus, Sensormatic brings direct delivery of RFID tags and labels to manufacturers worldwide.

Sensormatic Solutions, the retail solutions portfolio of Johnson Controls, can now offer retailers industry-leading radio frequency identification (RFID) source tagging services globally.

The organization’s newest RFID Service Bureau in Matamoros, Mexico, expands the footprint of this service, making custom-printed and encoded RFID tags and labels more accessible to North and Central American retailers and their manufacturers for application onto merchandise. The new North and Central America-focused RFID Service Bureau is the latest facility in the organization’s network, which includes regional locations to provide services in Asia, Europe and the rest of Latin America. 

“We are intensifying our focus on leveraging our established source tagging model for both Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) and RFID, and this service bureau is the latest example of how we can make tagging at the source a simple process for retailers and their manufacturing partners,” said Tony D’Onofrio, president, Sensormatic Solutions. “The Matamoros facility will bring that simplicity to a new group of retailers, easing adoption and giving them the precise, RFID-enabled visibility they need to refine order fulfillment, verify in- and outbound shipping, discreetly protect merchandise and more to improve their business outcomes.”

Opening Doors in New Regions

With the RFID Services Bureaus, Sensormatic brings direct delivery of RFID tags and labels to manufacturers worldwide. This helps local manufacturers and retailers to: 

  • Improve item-level inventory programs. RFID technology automates inventory counting processes and updates records in real-time, driving significant reductions in out-of-stocks and markdowns to grow revenue and improve gross margins. For example, the collaboration between Sensormatic Solutions and Renner led to a 64% increase in the Brazilian retailer’s inventory accuracy and an 87% reduction in stockouts.
  • Achieve end-to-end supply chain visibility. Source-tagging (equipping merchandise with RFID tags and labels at the point of manufacturing) extends retailers’ line of sight throughout the supply chain, turning merchandise flow data into insights that empower retailers to get ahead of disruptions.
  • Reduce labor demand. When merchandise arrives floor-ready, associates don’t need to spend time adding tags and labels before stocking shelves and — thanks to automated inventory tracking — staff no longer has to engage in time-consuming manual counting.
