More and more modern enterprises discover applications for electronic shelf labels (ESL), especially in critical tasks that can be automated and simplified and therefore become safer. Electronic shelf labels can display alerts, information concerning shelves, containers or machines and facilitate a user-network-interface for direct interaction via NFC-technology, BLE or integrated action buttons. Our electronic solution automates and simplifies daily tasks, which results in cost and downtime reduction in comparison to paper based applications. In general, a good deal of signage and other paper products that change frequently can be replaced by digital e-ink displays.
Advantages of the digitalization through ESL systems are, for example, fast updates, which provide more flexibility without additional material consumption. Processes can be optimized and automated, making the manual distribution of paper material or swapping of paper labels a thing of the past.
Also worth mentioning, are logistic benefits that come from digital labelling. If you’re looking to centralize your shelf, pallet, container or room signage, then ESL tags are the perfect tool for real-time, organized and on-demand signage, unifying, grouping and sorting information. Even whole workflows can be illustrated and pre-loaded onto the digital labels for flexible viewing, even in difficult environments like wet or sterile rooms.
Another advantage of electronic shelf labels on material boxes, chutes or others is the inclusion of action buttons that can reorder missing goods, send alerts or initialize automated processes on demand. This prevents failures during operation.
The content of electronic shelf labels can be changed flexibly and at the touch of a button, thus warnings and new information are displayed quickly when updating or changing the content.
An additional field of application of digital labels in the industrial sector is warehouse management. For this purpose, electronic shelf labels can be managed centrally. Action buttons for example can be used to deregister the goods or to have an overview of the inventory. In addition, with larger digital signage at the end of a shelf, the warehouse management becomes clear and can flexibly be adapted to changes.
- Electronic signage replaces paper and enables fast updates
- Automation and simplification of process steps
- Direct communication with ordering system using action buttons
- Reduction of costs and downtime
- Digital labelling of material chutes
- Schedules on big digital labels
- Digital buck sheets for internal transport
- Stock management
Newton series industrial solution
The Newton series electronic labels are an optimal industrial solution. Equipped with functions adapted to manufacturing, Newton electronic shelf labels with the Newton light and Button Label models not only simplify everyday work, but revolutionize it.
With the pick-by-light technology of the Button Labels, it is possible to check the current stock level at any time. Simultaneously, desired items can be found quickly and easily by employees. If the stock of goods is nearing its end or there is a risk of out-of-stock situations, a single push of a button is all that is needed to activate the reordering process.
The electronic shelf labels are also equipped with the possibility of geo-location through the trolley tracking function to track the delivery process. Thanks to the roaming solution, data is stored digitally, which greatly reduces paper consumption.
The digital display of all important device information on the ESLs enables quick and easy device management. With the help of the NFC tagging function, it is also possible to set and activate the timing of technical checks.
- Checking of the current stock level through pick-by-light
- Real-time control and tracking of the delivery process
- Digitalization of workflows
- Digital device management
In the age of digital transformation, the biggest advantage of ESL in the industrial sector comes from the digitalization of processes. This enables employees to easily and quickly retrieve workflows and instructions on the electronic shelf labels at any time. Simultaneously, supervisors can flexibly give instructions to employees as well as track and confirm work statuses. This way, your business not only saves paper through digital labels with low power consumption, but also reduces the risk of errors. Furthermore, ESL helps you optimize supply chains, identify forecast periods for restock and stay competitive in the digital age.
With many years of experience in the ESL-market and expert partners, such as SES-imagotag, we are happy to advise you on the best ESL-solution for your manufacturing processes. We not only provide information on the best electronic shelf labels to use, but also offer omnichannel solutions, if desired.
