French Discount Grocery Banner to Roll Out Pricer’s Electronic Shelf Solution
A leading French discount grocery banner together with its partner has selected Pricer to roll out its electronic shelf-edge solution in over 60 supermarkets across France. This is a new customer win for Pricer. This also represents a vertical in retail, discount grocery, which is new both to Pricer and the industry. Discount grocery as a vertical is transforming to an optimized pricing strategy, a transition supported by in-store automation and active pricing capabilities. This combination makes the discount grocery of tomorrow an attractive segment for Pricer’s large electronic shelf labels.
The value of the order is around 11 MSEK and the roll-out will be completed during 2016.
“With in-store automation increasingly becoming the focus of European retail, the adoption among new retail verticals such as discount grocery is expected to accelerate”, says Jonas Vestin, CEO of Pricer AB. “This order is a confirmation that Pricer is well positioned in market segments where speed and reliability are the most important evaluation criteria.”
