The hardware store Unimat Coop Lac-Mégantic won AQMAT's "Prix Techno-Marchands" for their successful installation of Pricer Electronic Shelf Labels with JRTech Solutions.
Montreal, January 31, 2013 – On January 26th, 2013 at the Château Frontenac in Quebec City, AQMAT held its first Gala event celebrating achievements within the Hardware Retail Sector. The hardware store Unimat Coop Lac-Mégantic won the “Prix Techno-Marchands” for their successful installation of Pricer Electronic Shelf Labels with JRTech Solutions.
Unimat Coop Lac-Mégantic was the first hardware store in North America to install electronic shelf labels (ESLs). With this technology in place since 2011, the Unimat store has been able to eliminate pricing errors for their clientele as well as ensure competitive pricing.
Pricer electronic shelf labels are wireless and battery-operated displays capable of replacing traditional paper price labels. As soon as a price change is issued from the home office, the electronic shelf labels are capable of updating prices in a matter of seconds at the shelf-edge within the store. Furthermore, the ESLs confirm back to a central system that the price information has been received and displayed as intended.
Founded in 2004 by Quebec agricultural producers and entrepreneurs. Since then, Unimat is part of the life and the evolution of regions across Unimat’s 177 stores in Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario, which now allow consumers to purchase products they need, for themselves, in the heart of their community and at competitive prices. Unimat is a part of La Coop network, a full member of La Coop fédérée. www.bmr.ca
