The staff training on site xplace took charge of can secure a trouble-free handling of the labels. Our sales staff is now aware of how to register and update the labels by entering the infra­structure system. They can deal with damaged labels, too. Thanks to the training, we can reach a com­pletely self-controlled price management. In this way,  we will give our staff more time to serve customers “, means  Sebastian Schrader, Head of the Orga­nization Department at POCO.

Elec­tronic shelf labels are the quickest and simplest way of marking prices. Pre­viously, whenever prices changed, a price label had to be printed out for each product, cut to size and mounted in a very time-consuming process. With ESLs, prices can be changed directly from the inventory management system. This eli­minates the speed advantage which pure play e-retailers have had until now, giving staff more time to serve customers. Moreover, ESLs form the basis for other tech­no­logies: In the back­ground, for example, they’re closely linked to the data-driven product range and the supply chain. And in future, customers will be able to access addi­tional product infor­mation from ESLs by means of NFC (near-field communication).
