Why is the Electronic Shelf Label Relevant to Various Industries?

It's not new to many businesses that ESL is mainly used for digitizing the pricing of products in retail stores, helping workers save time on replacing paper stickers when they need to update the prices. Furthermore, ESL allows workers to focus on customer service to attend to customers' needs and convert potential sales into actual sales.


However, the ESL's features don't only revolve around pricing. It also elevates the overall quality of a business's operations.


Other than dynamic pricing, the capability that lets stores update a product's price in real-time, ESL offers the following possibilities that will improve your business processes:


  • Easier management of inventory — Associates will be better able to locate where stock needs to go, improving replenishment and returns.
  • Omnichannel presence — Interact with consumers in the most convenient, comfortable way possible, depending on time, location, and urgency, switching between interaction methods as appropriate.
  • Targeted advertising — Connect with consumers and send precise, targeted promotions to your patrons based on past purchases, search engine histories, and social media activities.
  • Digital records — Get ahead of the competition and respond to big data at a much faster speed.
