TAG Company Announces Source Tagging Resource Center Now Available

Leading loss prevention company launches new website and opens Certification Centres

Fort Lauderdale, FL – August 6, 2007 – TAG Company announces the availability of its source tagging resource for both retailers and manufacturers.  A new easy-to-use website will guide newcomers to source tagging – the practice of applying electronic security labels on products at the point of manufacture or distribution – through the entire planning and implementation process.  In addition, TAG has opened Source Tagging Certification Centres in the US and Hong Kong.  This makes TAG one of only three EAS label companies operating Global source tagging centers.

Annually, retailers lose more than $30 billion in merchandise in the United States alone.  One approach to combat these losses is source tagging; the most efficient and effective way to protect merchandise.  When retailers and manufacturers cooperate to prevent shoplifting, product availability is increased providing benefits to every member of the supply chain including consumers.

Debbie Fisher, Director of Business Development for Source Tagging at TAG Company stated, “The availability of our source tagging resource center clearly establishes TAG as a player in this market. In addition to being the only company offering both Swept-RF and Acousto-Magnetic labels, we now are offering our expertise to retailers and manufacturers to help them make source tagging a reality.”

“The creation of our Source Tagging Certification Centres is a critical milestone in our company history,” remarked Mark Krom, TAG’s President and CEO.  “Our goal is to continue building our portfolio of products and services that help retailers reduce shrinkage. Source tagging is the most important element of many of our customers’ loss prevention strategies; our expanded resources ensure we can continue to support our customers now and in the future.”

The source tagging website can be found at http://www.tagcompany.com/sourcetagging.aspx. The Certification Centres are located at the company’s headquarters in south Florida and Hong Kong.
