A full-service jewelry store offers consumers an opportunity to buy diamonds, gold and precious gems among many other luxury items. Jewelers within the venue will also appraise fine jewelry and help their customers design unique pieces for loved ones. Given the very nature of this business, it is no surprise the level of security protocols involved; thus making jewelry store operations the most expensive in the retail sector. GAO RFID has perfected its solutions when it comes to security management, making our products one of the safest in Canada and the U.S.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Jewelry Store Industry
There is no doubt about the enormous advances RFID has made in the past several years. GAO RFID has seized this opportunity to perfect its technology, especially in the retail sector. The result is a suite of RFID Systems that are customizable for the jewelry sector. Below are some of the most common questions posed to us by industry insiders. Read on to see how GAO RFID can help your jewelry store achieve its operational goals.
Question: Because we house so many precious items on site, we are very particular about who enters the premises. Our current badging system is not very secure. Can GAO RFID help?
Security protocols are our field of expertise and no company does it better than GAO RFID. Our RFID Access Control System is one of the industry’s most powerful solutions in this regard. Using unique RFID Badges and Short Range RFID Readers, you are able to control who gets in and who stays out. Our badges are given to your employees, and each can be programmed for different zone access levels. When employees come into close proximity with the RFID Reader, they are granted access and the event is logged to our database, complete with employee identification and time. Install these Readers at strategic entry points within your facility, restricting access to sensitive zones.
Question: We must know where our diamonds and other precious gems are at all times. No exceptions. What is the safest way to keep an eye on these sensitive items?
GAO RFID’s Asset Tracking System and accompanying software is the superior choice in this matter. We understand the importance of knowing where your jewels are at all times of the day. Here are just some of the system’s features:
- Real-time tracking that allows you to know exactly where the jewel is and how it got there
- Ability to monitor all inventory with little human interference
- Powerful software system that can log pertinent product info such as grade, colour, cut, and certification—a robust ability to identify and confirm authenticity
- Ability to access information about the item’s whereabouts from a central computer, remote laptop or mobile device
Question: Theft prevention is a major component of our operational mandate. Can RFID be used to stop theft before it happens?
Absolutely. GAO RFID is able to customize the technology so that it can become integrated with your day-to-day activities. For example, install RFID Tags into your jewelry cases and pallets to track these shipping units through the supply chain. Any abnormalities can be set to trigger an alert that is emailed to overseeing managers for immediate response. According to industry experts, the bulk of jewelry store theft originates interally. By using our RFID solutions, we’re ensuring that merchandise will never leave your facility without you knowing about it.
