Security services move to the 'next level'

26 April 2017

New and emerging technology is enabling security service providers with additional scope to offer enhanced protection to customers.

One example of this is the launch of a division within integrated fire and security services provider Evolution.

This has been created to provide retail clients with a range of intelligent electronic article surveillance (EAS) solutions.

The new division will offer both traditional and next-generation systems to protect assets in the journey before, during and even after leaving the store.

This will involve using the latest security tags to audit the products from the point of manufacture to help reduce shoplifting, 'shrinkage' and issues with returns, such as being replaced with counterfeit goods.

Evolution's new division will be based in Chelmsford and led by Philip McKelvey, who has 20 years' experience in the security sector.

"Since we are not tied to any one manufacturer, we can provide best-advice and consultancy on all aspects of security, working with the latest technologies from the UK and Europe," he said.

He described the replacing of RF labels with RFID versions as providing "built-in intelligence that is taking security to another level".
