Retail with Electronic Shelf Labeling
The easy, flexible solution for digital price tags
Electronic Shelf Labeling, or ESL, is becoming increasingly important to retailers, not least because online channels are changing markets dynamically. Because the Internet sets the pace, prices must be adjusted daily, more often than not many times a day. A prerequisite for every ClickandCollect system is that goods in stationary stores and in online shops have the same prices. With ESL technology, also referred to as electronic or digital price tags, in many segments of the retail industry prices no longer have to be marked manually. Customers can see prices and product information within seconds by simply pushing a button.
Retail with ESL uses infrared technology to transmit information from the receiver to the digital price tags. This technology ensures a high bandwidth and the highest speed and, thus, shorter response times. Omni-channel retailers can respond flexibly to competitors’ price changes and adjust their own prices quickly and easily. Customers can be provided with comprehensive and updated prices and product information in stores, an option that paper price tags do not offer.
