Reduce time to check,
increace sales opportunity.
At retail stores, out-of-stock shelves inevitably reduce sales and customers, and cannot be considered a temporary loss. Since checking stock is such an important task, stores generally increase the frequency of checking, but this also increases the time spent by staff. The challenge for store owners is how to create an efficient process for checking the shelves.
Cutting Costs and Raising Sales
The Panasonic Out-of-Stock Detection System automatically monitors stock conditions. It greatly reduces the need for staff to check stock and prevents lost opportunity due to the lack of stock.The items on the shelves are constantly monitored by network camera, and the staff is notified as soon as an out-of-stock condition occurs, allowing the items to be immediately replenished. Because there is no need for the staff to regularly check the stock, that time can be spent on customer service, thus increasing customer satisfaction.
The time that was spent checking out of stock shelves is eliminated, so more time can be spent on customer service.
The labor cost for checking out of stock shelves can be suppressed, so costs are reduced and sales are increased.
Items are always available so customers buy and come back to the store to shop again.
The Out-of-Stock Detection System has a high level of detection accuracy thanks to Panasonic's original image recognition technology. If an item is out of stock, the staff will automatically be notified, together with the shelf position.
Out-of-stock information and data on fast-selling items are learned by the Panasonic cloud system, which allows the system to forecast item demand.
The Out-of-Stock Detection System can be linked to Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL). This also enables the staff to recognize the names of out-of-stock items together with the geolocation information of the ESL management system.
