ET | Source:Pricer AB
Pricer, the world leader in providing Electronic Shelf Label solutions, has
announced that Carrefour, the world’s second largest retailer, will use Pricer’s
latest retail technology for a fully-connected store that significantly improves
the customer experience.
Carrefour Villeneuve la Garenne is the first store worldwide that allows
customers to benefit from Pricer’s integrated solution using indoor navigation,
mobile shopping and SmartTAG graphic labels.
“Carrefour came to us 6 months ago searching for ideas to modernize the shopping
experience in their stores,” says Arnaud Lecat, VP Store Solutions at Pricer,
“Pricer delivered a solution enabling Carrefour to interact with their customers
through their smartphones and the ESLs.”
The mobile App created for Carrefour called "C-où", which is available on
Android and iOS, allows customers to create shopping lists, search products, get
promotions, find recipe ideas. The solution also includes geolocalisation – once
inside the store, it helps you find any product, and optimises your shopping
route through indoor navigation.
The store has been equipped throughout with over 55 000 Pricer NFC-enabled ESLs.
Not only do these bring all the benefits of ESLs – including centralized price
automation – but customers can even ‘like’ a product with their phone and the
label will display the total number of ‘likes’.
“We are proud to play a role in this prestigious project,” concluded Lecat. “For
Carrefour, customer service is paramount – it is a retailer that understands
that innovative new technologies can enrich this experience, and therefore boost
