A smart shelf is especially important for inventory management. As a retailer, you always want to offer your customers the desired product in the right quantity, at the right time and above all in the right place. Empty shelves or out-of-stock situations can thus be skilfully avoided. In order to always guarantee your customers availability of goods, you should use the Smart Shelf so that your goods supply systems are never empty. With the online inventory management of your Smart Shelf, the planning and ordering of goods is automated and made more efficient. In addition, the sensor-controlled shelving system offers targeted field service planning. The field service for the shelves, which are filled directly by the industry partner, is notified at any time by the Smart Shelf cloud when stocks are low. This ensures targeted and simplified planning. The Smart Shelf offers a perfect overview of the stocks on the shelves in real time.
Digitalisation in retail – with the help of the Smart Shelf
Your Smart Shelf for automated stock reports
A smart shelf is a shelf that is equipped with digital sensors. For example, these shelves give an automated stock report or avoid so-called out-of-stock situations, which means empty shelves. In this way, you can use numerous information and data analyses provided by your Smart Shelf to optimise your goods 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 measures the stock on the shelf with the latest laser technology and reports this in real time to the neoalto Retail Service Cloud. In this way, you as a retailer are directly informed about the status of the stocks on your shelves. The cloud is accessible to you as a user via digital end devices. In addition, the cloud of your Smart Shelf not only reports stock levels and thus avoids out-of-stock situations, but also triggers automatic orders if desired. The neoalto Retail Service Cloud from your Smart Shelf offers a lot of advantages for you and your trade. With the Smart Shelf, you increase the availability of goods and thus generate more sales in the long term. In addition, you reduce markdowns and thus receive more revenue. A significant advantage is the reduction of personnel costs. The Smart Shelf not only reduces your staff's shelf maintenance effort, but also automates stock checks and orders. Thus, you save more costs and your employees can take care of customer service.

Theft prevention with the help of the Smart Shelf
The Smart Shelf and our partner neoalto are not only beneficial in inventory management, but also offer significant benefits in theft prevention. Build on deterrence, alarm and activation with your sensor-controlled shelf system for theft prevention at the point of sale. As a deterrent, you can play jingles or announcements when suspicious items are removed. Your Smart Shelf sends a live age directly to your mobile device when a suspicious removal is detected so that security staff can respond immediately. Theft has been proven to be significantly reduced with the smart shelf system.
