ZURICH, January 13, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Scandit, leader in Smart Data Capture, launched ShelfView for retail sale. ShelfView is a smart data capture and analysis solution that enables real-time shelf visibility and enables smarter, more efficient store operations. Based on advanced computer vision technology, it enables retailers to effortlessly capture and process in-store data, such as prices and inventory locations, to take intelligence-driven action and accurate information in real time.
Ideal for grocery stores and stores with high SKU volume, Scandit ShelfView addresses some fundamental challenges retailers face today to tackle very fine margins and optimize costs. The introduction of in-store work automation and robotics can help retailers increase profitability by 2-4%, according to McKinsey. With rising labor costs, labor shortages, and the pressure to deliver omnichannel processing, ShelfView automates routine tasks that are currently performed manually and prone to errors to maximize efficiency. efficiency of store associates and reduce staff turnover.
ShelfView’s initial capabilities will help retailers optimize three main workflows:
Precise execution of prices and promotion labels: ShelfView analyzes both labels and signage in real time, via mobile devices or autonomous robots, to inform store workers of the adjustments needed to optimize sales and increase price integrity.
Friction-free in-store order picking: Shelfview, with autonomous robots, provides precise product locations to store workers, reducing substitution rates, reducing preparation times, and delivering an optimized customer experience. Any second recorded in order preparation can result in up to 10 million dollars annual savings1.
Faster replenishment with precise location of products in store: With stand-alone data capture, ShelfView can scan shelf and pallet labels to analyze the precise location of pallets for replenishment. This can save stores up to 2.5 hours per day, allowing store associates to be called upon for more critical tasks.2.
ShelfView brings together in-store information to improve retail execution by leveraging existing infrastructure without the need for significant additional investments. The solution can be scaled chain-wide, scanning millions of images per day, which can be processed on the device or in the cloud to provide actionable insights. ShelfView works seamlessly with Brain Corporation’s BrainOS® AI platform to provide an easily scalable, accessible, and cost-effective way to automate data collection through the use of bots. Using a versatile design, Inventory Scan is a powerful new accessory that can be installed on stand-alone floor washers to autonomously analyze key in-store inventory details. In addition, ShelfView can be applied to mobile devices already in use by store associates.
Scandit ShelfView allows retailers to:
Increase operational efficiency and reduce costs: ensure accurate pricing and promotions, accelerate the movement of inventory, and reduce low efficiency in in-store order fulfillment, which erodes profit margins. ShelfView increases the productivity of in-store associates to quickly locate products or check prices and promotions.
Increase the capacity of the workforce: The hybrid approach of mobile devices and stand-alone floor washers enables retailers to increase the workforce by removing repetitive tasks from employees and allowing them to focus on value-added tasks, such as customer engagement. Reducing tedious tasks helps retailers retain employees to reduce costly churn rate.
Get actionable insights in real time and reduce errors: ShelfView provides accurate in-store inventory data for efficient shelf management and order fulfillment workflows. Empower store associates to correct store-level issues before they affect sales.
Improve the customer experience and generate income: Accurately placed, assessed and promoted inventory is essential to deliver a consistent customer experience in-store and online. Frequent and accurate shelf management is vital to ensuring a smooth customer journey, especially in today’s omnichannel world.
Christian Floerkemeier, CTO and co-founder of Scandit, noted: “All retailers understand that it’s more important than ever to improve the in-store shopper experience, but doing it cost-effectively remains essential. Automating and simplifying routine tasks enables retailers to maximize their revenue while increasing the efficiency, value and engagement of their in-store associates.
