Why is JRTech Solutions the #1 supplier of Electronic Shelf Labels in North America?

Here are 5 reasons why JRTech Solutions is, since 2008, the #1 supplier of electronic shelf labels (ESL) in North America.

1. JRTech Solutions works with and provides solutions to Canada’s largest banners.

After winning significant contracts since 2010 with BMR, but also with the affiliated retailers RONA, Home Hardware and Patrick Morin, JRTech Solutions has become the key supplier to hardware stores in Canada. Since then, JRTech Solutions has been working with the largest banners in the hardware and construction industry, signing major agreements with BMR, Canadian Tire, Castle Building Centres, Laferté Renovation Centre and more.

In the grocery industry, JRTech Solutions equipped Avril Supermarché in 2010 and has continued to work with other major grocery banners such as Metro, Super C, Whole Foods and many others.

More recently, JRTech Solutions has reached an agreement with 10 pharmacies affiliated with the Jean Coutu Group to install the latest generation of fully graphic ESLs, SmartTAG Power+.

2. JRTech Solutions offers solutions that go beyond price automation

Did you know that JRTech Solutions’ pricing automation system can go much further than changing prices ?

Pricer’s infrared communication platform enables several features that will help you achieve better operations management. Some of these features include:

  • Geolocation: JRTech Solutions provides retailers with Automatic Product Geopositioning to efficiently geolocate a product within 1 foot of its actual location. Pricer’s Quick Search tool, which is available at an interactive kiosk or from a smartphone, then allows consumers to find products quickly and easily within the store.
  • Put-to-light: To better manage in-store inventory, our Put-to-light app and Pricer’s Instant SmartFLASH electronic labels help speed up in-store restocking without errors. The app speeds up the restocking process by up to 50% while increasing sales by reducing the number of out-of-stock items.
  • Click & Collect: By combining our Geopositioning system with our Instant SmartFLASH solution, you can have the ability to offer Click-&-Collect services. Shoppers and retailers can locate and select products much faster, saving up to 10 seconds per item collected.
  • The Shelf Vision: Pricer’s Shelf Vision, a camera using artificial intelligence, is specially designed and adapted for the retail industry. Placed on the shelf, the Shelf Vision collects and communicates a large amount of product information throughout the day while ensuring planogram compliance.


3. JRTech Solutions has the fastest technical support

When it comes to answering your doubts/questions or helping you out, JRTech Solutions has the fastest technical support in the industry locally, whether in English or French!
