Co-op expands ESL use
Scotmid and Southern Co-op have expanded their use of electronic shelf labels (ESL)
Initial trials have already seen increased store efficiency, improved pricing and product information compliance, reduced paper wastage and an enhanced store team morale.
The integrated technology allows for fast, accurate and confirmed information updates, in terms of critical and accurate retail information such as pricing and promotions.
Allan Robertson, programme manager for innovation and change at Scotmid, said: “Our store teams are really loving this - removing the burden of price and promotion tasks and compliance isn't just a productivity boost - it's been a morale boost too!"
