Smartory, a russian retail chain

A retail chain of club supermarkets Smartory (Russia) has implemented a system of electronic shelf labels by SES-imagotag to carry out its innovative business model. Smartory is a brand new and unique club project at the Russian retail market bearing philosophy of “selected assortment of quality goods and services at reasonable prices”. Smartory business model helps to cut operating costs of the retail chain and to set honest prices for its merchandise.

In order to increase clarity of the pricing system at Smartory stores, the management has decided to use electronic shelf labels for demonstration of information on certain key products supplemented by comparison with competitors’ prices.

For these purposes, Smartory and its pricing partner “Smart Price” have developed and implemented a framework for conversion of specified group of merchandise from paper shelf labels to ESL. The ESL system has been integrated with Smartory back-office and competitors’ prices comparison service.

“The ESL solution will allow us to carry out our business strategy in achieving certain sales volumes and profit levels.”
