Checkpoint Systems launches improved Check-Net print shops
Oct '14
Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has launched its enhanced Check-Net print shops with significant printing capabilities that allow them to quickly print, encode and test RFID labels for apparel retailers and manufacturers employing its source tagging capabilities.

Check-Net’s unique new system is eight times faster than industry-standard thermal transfer printers and offers higher accuracy (99.9%) and quality, including multi-colour RFID label printing. This makes Checkpoint System’s source tagging program ideal for apparel retailers with global operations that require a large number of labels for their stores around the world. In fact, Check-Net can now print and encode one million RFID labels in 24 hours, the company said in a statement.

Check-Net increases operational efficiency by delivering unprecedented value to retailers in handling source tagging initiatives. By refilling stock items such as self-adhesive radio frequency (RF) labels on rolls and woven or printed apparel labelling solutions, Check-Net facilitates the complete ordering process and ensures the right products are delivered at the right time.

Along with the new printing systems, Check-Net offers new processes and quality controls, including individual re-serialization for Electronic Product Codes (EPC). EPC testers are attached to printers, and Checkpoint follows strict manufacturing processes to ensure that the RFID labels that are not used are destroyed. In addition, Checkpoint uses anti-static solution packing to avoid RFID chips being damaged.

James Wrigley, the president and chief operating officer for Apparel Labelling Solutions, Checkpoint, said, “Apparel retailers are in a highly competitive environment and must have access to the right products at the right time in order to deliver shelf-ready merchandise to stores as quickly as possible. Check-Net helps make this daunting task simple and efficient, while maintaining high quality.”

Check-Net is the largest connected printing and logistics network of Checkpoint Systems that enables retailers and manufacturers to promote their brands, convey item information, streamline logistics systems, and reduce labelling costs with ease.

Checkpoint Systems, headquartered in Spain, is one of the global leaders in shrink management, merchandise visibility, and apparel labelling solutions. (GK)
