Calzedonia Group selects Nedap for global EAS roll-out

Stores to be equipped with Nedap’s RFID-ready loss prevention solution

Groenlo, The Netherlands – January 11, 2016

The Italian fashion retailer Calzedonia Group has selected Nedap as a solution provider for security solutions such as electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems, video surveillance and intrusion detection systems. The multi-year contract encompasses the supply and installation of RF EAS hardware and consumables for loss prevention purposes.

The first step entails the roll-out of EAS systems to about 50 Tezenis and Intimissimi stores. Worldwide, Calzedonia has around 4000 stores across 40 countries and the first installations were already completed in the last quarter of 2015.

Shrink reduction & future-readiness

After extensive field-testing of different EAS suppliers, Calzedonia selected Nedap’s EAS solution because of its reliable detection performance, easy connectivity, and the future-proof RFID upgrade path, which makes it possible to upgrade to RFID technology in the future without the need for major additional hardware investments. All connected systems deliver real-time insights into the system and store performance for monitoring and benchmarking.

According to Rob Schuurman, Managing Director at Nedap Retail: “We are proud to have been selected by Calzedonia and are looking forward to supporting the Calzedonia brands with their global expansion plans by giving the merchandise the most effective and customer-friendly protection.
