Scandit launches ShelfView: intelligent and autonomous shelf management for retailers
ZURICH, Jan. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Scandit, the leader in Smart Data Capture, has launched ShelfView for retail. ShelfView is a smart data capture and analytics solution that enables real-time shelf visibility and empowers more intelligent and efficient store operations. Based on advanced computer vision technology, it enables retailers to effortlessly capture and process in-store data, such as pricing and inventory locations, to take action based on intelligence and accurate real-time information.
Ideal for grocers and stores with high-SKU volume, Scandit ShelfView addresses some fundamental challenges retailers are facing today to tackle razor-thin margins and drive cost optimization. Introducing in-store labour automation and robotics can help retailers add another 2-4% to their profitability according to McKinsey. With rising labour costs, worker shortage and pressure to deliver omnichannel fulfilment, ShelfView automates routine tasks which are currently conducted manually and prone to error to maximise store associate efficiency and reduce employee turnover.
ShelfView's initial capabilities will help retailers optimize three main workflows:
ShelfView gathers in-store intelligence to improve retail execution by leveraging existing infrastructure without the need for significant additional investment. The solution can be scaled chain-wide, scanning millions of images per day, which can be processed on device or in the cloud to deliver actionable insights. ShelfView works seamlessly with Brain Corporation's BrainOS® AI platform to deliver an easily scalable, accessible and cost-efficient way to automate the collection of data via the use of robots. Utilizing a multi-purpose design, Inventory Scan is a powerful new accessory that can be fitted to autonomous floor scrubbers to autonomously scan key details on in-store inventory. Additionally, ShelfView can be applied to mobile devices already in use by store associates.
Scandit ShelfView enables retailers to:
Christian Floerkemeier, CTO and Co-Founder of Scandit, said: "All retailers understand that improving the in-store shopper experience is more important than ever, but doing so economically remains critical. Automating and simplifying routine tasks empowers retailers to maximise revenues while increasing the efficiency, value and engagement of their store associates. By leveraging our smart data capture capabilities, ShelfView can increase on-shelf product availability, improve the rate of online orders fulfilled and lift sales through accurate pricing and promotion labelling to achieve this."
With industry-leading performance, Scandit ShelfView leverages augmented reality (AR), object recognition, object detection, optical character recognition, and other advanced computer vision technology to process images acquired through both mobile devices and autonomous data capture.
