The evolution of JRTech Solutions from its creation in Quebec, Canada to its growth all over North America.
Since 2008, JRTech Solutions has provided retailers with electronic solutions to improve the efficiency of their retail operations. We are the leading North American complete solutions supplier of the world's most reliable electronic shelf labels system, Pricer.
Why choose JRTech Solutions?
The late 2000s marked the revolution in labeling systems in supermarkets and hardware (DIY) stores. Increasingly, retail began to replace paper price displays in favor of electronic shelf labels (ESL). More popular in Europe than in North America, Diego Mazzone and his associates decided to import this phenomenon to the North American market and founded JRTech Solutions in 2008.
From its inception, JRTech Solutions has been involved in innovation and retail transformation. By developing solutions and services that are easy to use, we offer our clients both technological products which are adapted to each their needs. Our expertise goes from electronic shelf labels to the design of accessories, attachment solutions, portable terminals and digital displays.
