About the Client:
A subsidiary of a Thailand-based B2B cash-and-carry operator established itself in India in 2017. Their target was the B2C segment and they wanted to provide a wide range of products like fresh produce, packaged food, electronics, stationery, apparel and more, all under one roof.
They had been using display shelves to update prices and offers by hand. But this method was troublesome because for every price revision, they would have to physically go to the shelves and change the price. They realized that their process lacked live data collection for tracking SKU movement to offer price revision and offers in real-time.
The client’s wanted to improve overall shelf replenishment cycle and increase the profit margin.
We came up with a PoS solution which was integrated with an Offer Management Platform (OMP), and with a Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) data as an input. First, we set up the Electronic Shelf Label solution integrated with the WiFi, across the whole store. We next integrated the Marketing (Offer) Management Platform in a way that the store managers were able to monitor the stock movement. Based on that change, they priced their different offers. This helped the client control prices across the store without any physical effort previously involved in changing the labels.
