Real time shelf monitoring for out of stocks and alerts for theft attempts!

Smart Shelf is able to sense a product’s density and molecular make up with technology built right into the shelf.  Other technologies use video, weight sensors or RFID.  But with Smart Shelf you can simply place the product on the shelf and it recognizes what it is and tracks it for you with little configuration.  

How can Smart Shelf benefit you? 

1) Real-time inventory data with out of stock alerts
2) Ensure the right products are on the right shelf.  Plan-o-gram compliance! 
3) Integration with video and audio for in aisle theft alerts!
Smart Shelf tracks real time inventory and provides this data through a cloud based dashboard.  Alerts can be set for out-of-stock warnings and theft attempts. The system can recognize when a large quantity of product has been removed from a shelf in a short period of time.  This can trigger an audible “Customer assistance required” notification right in the aisle.  You will also be notified if the products have been mixed up on a shelf or if you are out of stock.  Remember that your POS data can’t tell you about out of stocks that occur because of theft!
You as a Retailer will be able to monitor customer engagement, configure plan-o-grams in the software, and the best part yet, no there is no need for additional tagging or sensors on the products! You just need to simply place the products directly onto the display! This solution has many actionable alerts and insights such as: out of stock alerts, shopper/customer engagement retail analytics, product trend analysis, notifications through a communication method, video verified planogram compliance and more! 

It works!

A supermarket chain is currently using the Smart Shelf in their stores. They were able to prevent sweeping theft and also caught the action on video. In six months, their baby formula sales increased by 16% and shrinkage reduced by 74%!

 “The results of the initial offender interviews for the Smart Shelf solution were positive receiving our highest scores for “Get It” and “Fear It”. We look forward to additional testing and research as this Smart Pad solution is deployed by more retailers in the coming months. It has long been known that associate interaction is one of the best deterrents to theft. This solution’s unique ability to alert store personnel and potential thieves in real time while theft activity is occurring at the shelf is worth consideration.” – Dr. Read Hayes, Director, Loss Prevention Research Council.
