Why pay extra for a premium seal?
The market for security seals is so saturated now that many organisations have been in bidding wars and many consumers have resorted to purchasing cheap low quality seals.
We at Mega Fortris are very proud at the quality of the security seals we manufacture and believe we are here to cater for organisations who would like to secure their goods at a reasonable price and receive a high quality security seal. We believe many organisations have become so caught up in the mindset of making everything cheaper at any cost that we are actually losing money in the process.
Mega Fortris were recently contacted by a firm shipping their goods worldwide. They were using low quality seals at a very cheap price. They were fairly surprised at the fact that even though they were using bolt seals to secure their containers there were still a high percentage of thefts.
This is when we bought to their attention that it isn’t the seal that you place on the application which prevents a theft; it’s the quality of the seal. We introduced the firm to our flagship product the 2K Klicker Bolt seal and they were over whelmed at the quality of our seal as well as the security it provided.
Though the 2K Klicker was a little more expensive product the organisations were saving money on not only the goods not being stolen but also the cost of a theft. The organisation confirmed that after the use of Mega Fortris 2K Klicker they saved money on the goods, cost of investigation of the theft and the cost of insurance premium went down the following year.
Furthermore after the use of the 2K Klicker bolt seal the organisation also stated that they had decreased their cost of loss prevention.
