“rapitag is bringing secure 1-click-buying to the retail floor, eliminating queuing and creating a new omnichannel shopping experience.” Rethinking retail Anti-theft-devices become the point of sale rapitag is taking classical EAS (Electronic-Article-Surveillance) hardtags and payment processes in retail to another level by offering the world’s first patented security tag that can open itself automatically by using smart materials. With no need for a checkout counter or terminal, customers can simply hold their smartphones next to a rapitag attached to a shirt or digital camera, pay within the app, remove the tag and leave the store without ever waiting in a queue. 4 easy steps: Scan, Pay, Remove & Go. Everywhere and anytime in the store. The rapitag IoT will be reused and stays in the store (always active with our 24/7 theft protection). Store owners benefit from cost reduction (less cash counters), cross and up sales (tags become point of sale and the app the personal shopping advisor) and legally identifying (online) customers in stores to offer advanced services and replace loyalty cards for good: Enabling the real power of Retail 4.0!
