A smart shelf is a shelf that is equipped with digital sensor technology. For example, these racks provide an automated inventory report or avoid so-called out-of-stock situations, which means empty racks. This allows you to use a wide range of information and data analysis provided by your Smart Shelf to optimize your merchandise management.
Our merchandise feed system can be easily transformed into an optimal smart shelf with the Stock Bacon sensor element and the associated cloud application from our partner neoalto. The small, intelligent Stock Bacon sensor element is plugged into the back of the POS‑T merchandise feeder, turning your merchandise feeder shelf into a Smart Shelf in no time at all. The sensor element uses state-of-the-art laser technology to measure stock levels on the shelf and reports them in real time to the neoalto Retail Service Cloud. This means that you as a retailer can find out directly how stocks are doing on your shelves. The cloud is accessible to you as a user via digital devices. In addition, the cloud of your Smart Shelf not only reports stock levels and thus avoids out-of-stock situations, but even triggers automatic orders if desired. The neoalto Retail Service Cloud from your Smart Shelf offers a lot of advantages for you and your retail. The Smart Shelf increases the availability of goods and thus generates more sales in the long term. You also reduce markdowns and get more revenue. A significant advantage is the reduction in personnel expenses. Smart Shelf not only gives your staff less shelf maintenance work, it also automates inventory checks and orders. Thus, you save more costs and your employees can take care of customer service.
