Two months ago, Coop, one of Sweden’s leading grocery chains with around 800 shops nationwide, launched their first unmanned shop at Sätrahöjden in Gävle, which is equipped with ZKONG electronic shelf labels for a related omnichannel solution.
This small 30 square metre pilot shop is perfect for those looking to buy nutritional supplements and offers around 400 different frozen, dry and chilled SKUs at any time of the day, as well as a click and collect service.
Customers enter the shop, scan the items and pay for them using the Coop specific app, they can also seek more information by scanning the QR codes on our ZKONG electronic shelf labels.
Coop noticed that it took too much time and manpower to produce and print all the electronic shelf labels and fix them tightly on the shelves. And it was essential to also ensure that the prices were 100% correct.
But the unmanned shop didn’t have a traditional cash register or stocker to help with day-to-day operations. The company required a flexible solution to display their prices and more information that was easy to manage and cost effective.
