Electronic Shelf Labels

Electronic shelf labels (ESLs) are innovative digital price tags that replace traditional paper labels on retail shelves. These labels offer a dynamic way for stores to update pricing, promotions, and product information in real-time, ensuring accuracy and efficiency. By integrating with the store's inventory and pricing systems, ESLs minimise the risk of human error and reduce the labor costs associated with manually changing paper labels. They also enable retailers to respond quickly to market changes, competitive pricing, and inventory levels.

ESLs are also instrumental in enhancing customer experience and facilitating targeted advertising. Their ability to display detailed product information, promotional offers, and even QR codes for further engagement makes shopping more informative and interactive. Retailers can leverage ESLs to deliver personalised promotions based on shopper behaviour and preferences, driving increased sales and customer loyalty.

Introducing electronic shelf labels

Electronic shelf labels (ESLs) represent a revolutionary advancement in retail technology, offering a sophisticated alternative to traditional paper price tags. These digital labels are designed to seamlessly integrate with a retailer’s inventory and pricing systems, allowing for real-time updates and ensuring that all product information is accurate and current. ESLs use electronic ink or liquid crystal displays to present information clearly and legibly, even in varying lighting conditions, providing a modern and efficient solution to price management and product labeling.

See our article ‘what are electronic shelf labels – and how do they work?’ to learn more.

Transforming the customer experience

Electronic shelf labels (ESLs) significantly enhance the customer experience by ensuring that shoppers always have access to accurate and up-to-date pricing, eliminating the frustration of outdated or incorrect price tags. The ability to display detailed product information, such as ingredients, origin, and sustainability metrics, empowers customers to make informed purchasing decisions. Additionally, the integration of interactive elements like QR codes and NFC tags provides shoppers with a seamless way to access online reviews, product comparisons, and special promotions, making the shopping experience more engaging and informative.

Beyond these core benefits, ESLs contribute to a smoother and more efficient shopping journey by improving shelf organisation and readability. This ensures that customers can easily locate the products they need, enhancing overall satisfaction. ESLs can also support multilingual displays, catering to a diverse customer base and making the shopping experience more inclusive. These labels can be used to highlight special dietary options or allergen information, catering to specific customer needs and preferences, thus fostering a more personalised and considerate shopping environment.

Improved shelf navigation

These labels provide clear, consistent, and accurate information, making it easier for customers to find the products they need quickly and efficiently. The digital nature of ESLs ensures that prices are always up-to-date, eliminating the confusion and frustration caused by mismatched prices between the shelf and the checkout counter. This not only enhances the shopping experience but also builds trust and satisfaction among customers who appreciate the reliability of accurate pricing.

Highlighting special attributes

Shoppers with specific dietary needs or preferences, such as organic, gluten-free, or vegan options, can easily identify these products thanks to the customisable displays of ESLs. The ability to highlight these attributes prominently helps customers make informed choices without having to scrutinise each product label. This targeted visibility supports a more personalised shopping experience, catering to individual health needs and lifestyle choices, and can significantly increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Enhanced store aesthetics

Traditional paper labels can often appear cluttered and inconsistent, detracting from the overall look of the store. In contrast, modern digital labels provide a sleek, uniform appearance that contributes to a cleaner and more organised store layout. This not only enhances the visual appeal but also reflects positively on the store’s brand image, suggesting a commitment to innovation and quality.

Highlight offers

These labels can easily highlight discounts, promotions, and special savings with eye-catching designs and dynamic content. The ability to quickly update and display offers in vibrant, attention-grabbing formats ensures that customers are always aware of the latest deals, driving impulse buys and increasing overall sales. This dynamic advertising capability keeps the shopping experience exciting and engaging, encouraging customers to explore more of the store’s offerings.
