Efficient pricing with electronic price labels

The use of electronic shelf labels (ESL) allows you to centrally control all prices. This ensures reliable congruence of data between the online shop, shelf and cash register. Prices can be adjusted flexibly over the ERP system in a matter of seconds. ESL lower the cost of updating prices significantly, reduce sources of error and relieve staff of extra work.

Optimising conversions through cross-channel price management

Electronic price labels make sure that the right price appears on the right product with the right information. Changes in price are controlled automatically over an interface to the ERP system, special promotional prices are rolled out temporarily and automatically reset after the promotion has come to an end.

Consistent online and offline prices are an important factor in the seamless customer journey. Central management of prices creates reliable data congruence between the online store, cash register and shelf, and by doing so reduces the number of purchase cancellations of customers who always have their eye on the online price.

Diverse Technologies

The use of digital price labels goes far beyond the use of traditional labels on shelving systems. Advances in technology and hardware are constantly expanding the portfolio of solutions available. Whether shelf label, screen overlay, software feature or digital poster – we can deliver a suitable digital pricing solution for virtually every requirement.

More usage options

Digital pricing can also be used for articles such as smartphones, notebooks, tablets or TVs. In addition to the price, these digital price overlays also show extra product information. As part of product advice applications, the price overlays encourage customers to test the devices. The applications themselves protect against unauthorised access and changing passwords.

The benefits of e-commerce at the POS

Services and features that customers are familiar with from e-commerce can be transferred to the POS by connecting them to external systems (online store, ERP system, social media feed, etc.). Via QR code, customers get to see additional product information, test videos or online reviews. Recommendations by other customers and even staff members can be shown directly on the label.

Similarly, e-commerce and ERP systems provide data on the competition or on stock levels. Properly networked, this data provide information for automated price adjustments. Constantly changing online offers are registered within seconds and are transferred dynamically to the point of sale. Retailers continue to remain competitive.

Our goal is to offer the best possible service. Precise and current prices plus product information are indispensable. Thanks to our permanent partner, xplace, we could realise our ESL project in the record time of three months in 30 Media Markt stores in Russia.
