Electronic shelf labelling gives customers more confidence in the accuracy of pricing; and store owners can operate their stores more efficiently. The more efficiently the stores are run, the more profitable they are, so the more they will grow, which benefits the entire organisation and customers. It’s a win-win scenario.?
Price discrepancies can be a major issue for retailers who stand to lose revenues, customer loyalty, and incur additional costs through labour inefficiencies. Most retailers are keenly aware of this problem and actively pursuing ESL, which promises to remedy the situation. It reduces the time it takes to update prices in the shop because it eliminates the need for workers to physically replace paper labels. It therefore also improves price integrity substantially. With the addition of an infrared key, store managers and selected employees can use the digital shelf labels to query stock levels at the shelf, which substantially enhances stock control and ultimately customer service. Retailers on average see a 1% increase in GP after installing the system. This increase in GP justifies the system within 18 months and retailers increase profits, much needed in a tough economic climate.

Store Manage Solutions
Increasing store productivity.
Pricer has developed a complete system solution to support effective promotion encompassing geolocation and SmartFlash capabilities to support store tasks, such as placing and removing promotion tags or using the flash to guide and support staff operational tasks.
Efficient store tasks
Delisting products, negative stocks, new arrivals, shelf implementation, shelf-talker management… associates use the Pricer PDA (or smartphone) application or a tier application to carry out operational tasks. They receive the list of tasks to carry out and they are guided in the store to each electronic shelf label (ESL) for which a task is requested. The concerned ESL will flash when it is approached. The system combines Indoor GPS, the geolocation of products with the IR communication network and the SmartFLASH.
Improve planogram compliance. Pricer ESLs acknowledge their positions in the store and can be pinged at any time to check planogram conformity.
Pricer Click & Collect application
The increased interest in home delivery and store pick-up, has indicated to many innovative retailers the need for a quick and responsive Click & Collect application. Pricer’s unique ability to geolocate the associate and the product, in real time, combined with new SmartFLASH technology is clearly revolutionizing in-store picking activities.
The associate receives an online shopper order on a PDA or a smartphone.
The associate is directed to the first and closest item to pick. Optimal route is indicated on the digital map.
The associate approaches, the item’s ESL starts to flash.
The product is picked, associate checks the item off the list and the ESL stops flashing.
The associate is guided to the next closest product on the list and the same process continues.
