Electronic Shelf Labels

Changing prices in a retail environment can be an expensive and time-consuming job. Electronic shelf labels can make this job easier, faster, cheaper and above all, reduce the risks of pricing mistakes. The e-paper labels can be updated multiple times per day, which can be useful for reducing waste of perishable goods. These updates are transmitted bi-directionally with a wireless over the air network. Better stock management will reduce the amount of waste and cost within your organization.

Opticon electronic shelf labels make your retail business futureproof and allow for dynamic pricing. The labels can be easily mounted to any store shelf type or one of the many other mounting solutions. All you need is a few labels and a smart base station. Opticon’s e-paper label system can be integrated with any existing store database. You can remotely monitor and control one or multiple stores via the user-friendly cloud dashboard.

With electronic shelf labels you can reduce the workload of your staff or reduce the number of staff needed in the store completely. Promotions can be automatically applied at a pre-determined time.

The fully graphical label designer allows you to create multiple templates to use with your system, including templates for discounts, promotional or new items in your store.

With Opticon’s ESLs, you can further enrich the shopping experience in your retail store. With our powered electronic shelf labels, you can add active NFC, sound and RGB LED lights to your system. The LED lights can be used to highlight products or get customers’ attention. In the warehouse, you can use the labels for a high-tech pick-to-light solution. The built-in active NFC can be used to create a seamless shopping experience. Each label can become a point-of-sale within the store or integrate the e-paper labels with your existing point of sale system. This system is ideal for unmanned stores or when you want to offer a seamless, cashier-less shopping experience.

Opticon’s ESLs come in many different sizes, from small 1.5 inch to larger 7.5 inch labels. The ESLs come with black, white, and red e-paper variants. The system also works great together with Opticon’s full color displays. These can be used to highlight items with photos, videos, and other dynamic content in the store.
