Groupe Schiever, a French retail group and affiliate of the Auchan group, has decided to roll out Pricer Electronic Shelf Label in all 74 Atac supermarkets. The first 20 stores will be installed by year end and the rollout will be completed by end 2011. The total contract value is 45 MSEK.
“Schiever’s decision is a major win for Pricer,” says Fredrik Berglund, CEO at Pricer, “especially when considering that this retailer has installed ESL from another ESL supplier in its 7 hypermarkets. In a competitive French retail environment, Schiever wanted to implement a more aggressive pricing policy,” continues Mr Berglund. “Pricer’s high speed ESL system, based on infrared communication, is seen as the best solution to their needs.”
“We have made the decision in favor of the Pricer solution” confirms Gilles Roux, Director of IT and Organization at Schiever. “The Pricer ESL System is clearly able to offer the best functionalities to manage the Schiever pricing policy as well as optimize stock information at the shelf edge” adds Mr Roux.
