The Point of Sale in focus
What exactly is happening directly at the point of sale (POS)? Whoever can determine the stock and removal data on a product level will minimize short sales, increase turnover and get a competitive advantage. IMCo technology creates a source for connecting the retail shelf with the internet of things (IoT). With the IMCo Smart Shelf tobacco retailers now have an advanced, superior product portfolio at their disposal, giving detailed out of stock analyses, visualising this data and therefore giving effective tools for management decisions. IMCo presented its intelligent solutions together with their partner OEK Oechsle Display Systems GmbH- one of Germany´s largest producers of displays and POS equipment. The IMCo Smart Shelf for Instore Analytics proved itself at the InterTabac and will be tested by three leading tobacco manufacturers.
New features for Instore Analytics
IMCo is complementing its proven worldwide Smart Shelf System with a dashboard for smartphone and desktop. In addition to the existing real-time out of stock alarm, the new functions can give exact product removal data and visualize these in conclusive diagrams. For instance out of stock ratio per product, out of stock time and the replenishment speed as well as the amount of removals per product category could be displayed. Retailers could analyze the data via the IMCo software platform or export this data into their own existing software.
