Essential software for the first steps with digital labels
The implementation of digital price tags in companies of different sectors undoubtedly enables the simplification and optimization of operational processes. However, operating electronic shelf labels can present entrepreneurs with new challenges. To make it easier for you to manage digital labels, e-shelf-labels offers the operating system fbOS.
fbOS is a primary software, which is pre-installed on each access point of the SubONE system (868 GHz). Together with the technical infrastructure, it thus represents the basic equipment that every entrepreneur needs to furnish his business with digital labels and to be able to digitally control them. The operating system is a necessary companion right from the beginning during the installation and configuration process of the electronic shelf labels to ensure the faultless functioning of all electronic price tags as well as the perfect connection to the network. The fbOS software facilitates the further commissioning of the electronic shelf labels by supporting the user in processes such as the application of digital signs and the branding compliant label design with product information from existing databases. With additional functions such as interface connection and user management, fbOS is an all-inclusive solution for the initial commissioning of digital labels.
After you have implemented your own labels, you are initially confronted with what appears to be a complex control system for electronic shelf labels at first glance. This challenge can easily be handled with the help of the fbOS software. The easy-to-use operating system enables electronic shelf labels to be managed quickly and centrally. Furthermore, the fbOS software allows you to keep an overview of all labels stored in your system on one in-house platform. You can call up the operating system at any time on your devices or your desktop and see how many labels are currently active. Should an error or technical problem occur with a label, the system will issue a warning and, with the help of the label ID, will show which E-Ink display is affected. This allows you to correct errors promptly. To check the status of each individual label, all you have to do is to scan the barcode of the label you are looking for. Within a few seconds, the operating system provides you with information about the selected tag, such as the battery status and the NFC capability of the label.
Individual design for a strong recognition value of your company
With the help of the digital signs, you can give your company a concise identification mark. Using the software's built-in template generator, you can develop a creative custom design for the information on the tags to match your corporate identity. Since the intuitive template generator does not require any design skills to operate, any employee can create layouts for displays within a few minutes. The integrated template generator provides numerous elements for designing the layouts. For example, your logo can be placed as a graphic element on the digital signs. To make orientation in the store easier for your customers, you can enhance your labels with additional product information. If you want to draw the attention of visitors from your store to your online shop, you can embed barcodes or QR codes on the displays, making it easier for your customers to find the items they are looking for online as well.
