On shelf availability is a major challenge for grocery, drugstore, beauty retailers and their FMCG suppliers. 8% of SKU's on average are OOS (out of shelf) causing significant revenue loss. Most attempts to reduce OOS fail. The problem increases in "click and collect" stores where each OOS SKU has a direct impact on order fulfillment with potentially negative effects on the shopping experience
WiseShelf’s unique solution uses light sensors that provide retailers with real-time shelf inventory management plus a full backbone tool to make online orders with store pickup more efficient.
How does it work?
WiseShelf’s thin, low-cost appliance (patent pending) is equipped with dozens of light sensors that turn the store shelf into an IOT enabled device that sends real-time data to a management application. To prevent OOS, a cloud based, machine learning algorithm processes data and sends real-time alerts to the retailer/supplier as stock levels decrease. WiseShelf uses the data analysis to provide reports on shelf insights. WiseShelf supports planogram compliance that improves replenishment processes by guiding merchandizers to a specific shelf with the correct items.
- 50% decrease of OOS events
- 40% higher efficiency of replenishment processes
- Supports planogram compliance
- Easy and fast implementation
- ROI guaranteed due to low cost of ownership
