Carrefour to upgrade 500 stores

Carrefour will upgrade 500 of its 12,1225 stores with new electronic shelf label (ESL) installations by the end of 2022.

The retail company, which selected Pricer to install the shelf labels, said it will use an in-store communication and management system to equip and upgrade hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores and wholesale outlets in France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Romania, Poland, Brazil, Argentina and Taiwan.

The ESL system includes Instant Flash, a flashlight that provides visibility up and down the aisle and allows store associates to replenish products and detect expiry dates.

Carrefour also said that the new systems enable the display of store management data, including stock data, replenishment days, average sales, product's EAN barcodes, as well as automated price management data.

Miguel Angel González Gisbert, global chief technology officer at Carrefour, said: "After a thorough evaluation of all the main manufacturers in the ESL market, we are very pleased to select Pricer as our preferred worldwide supplier in this area.”

“Pricer has been a key partner over the last 20 years and continues to offer leading capabilities when it comes to quality of display, efficiency, simplicity and features, such as pick-to-light, that were demonstrated in the field during the selection process."
