Electronic Shelf Labeling (ESL) and IoT

One of the most extensive IoT-enabled applications within Retail is electronic shelf labeling which encompasses 2.7 billion connected devices according to Transforma Insights. The rapid adoption of wirelessly powered Electronic Shelf Label (ESL) systems/digital price tags is set to revolutionize retail pricing and efficiency.

Paper price tags and battery-powered ESLs have limitations, but wireless IoT-powered ESLs outperform battery-powered solutions in dynamic pricing, sustainability, design, and ROI. The cost is competitive, and the benefits extend beyond retail. IoT empowers retailers to maintain real-time price updates and efficient inventory management through connected devices, enabling dynamic pricing and ensuring products are always available.

1NCE can simply track the high relevance of IoT to Electronic Shelf Labeling via the growing number of customers in the niche.
