Thorofare, N.J. -- Supply chain solution-provider Checkpoint Systems said Wednesday it has been chosen by Tesco to implement a global EAS program to improve on-shelf availability of products, open merchandising and the consumer shopping experience.
Having successfully installed EVOLVE ECO in 1,250 Tesco Express Stores last year, Checkpoint has been asked to fast-track the rollout of its advanced RF solutions in more than 900 of the retailer’s large formats Extra, Superstore and Metro stores over the next few months, replacing the existing acoustic-magnetic technology.
As part of the program, Tesco is upgrading its systems by installing Checkpoint’s EVOLVE ECO, RF-EAS systems across Tesco’s entire estate in the U.K.
The installation is expected to be completed before Christmas.
With this roll-out, Tesco now has Checkpoint solutions installed throughout the whole of the U.K. as well as North America and Asia.
