How much does ESL cost?
It will of course depend on the size of the shop and how many articles you have in a shop before you consider the multiple label sizes or options.
Typically an electronic price label comes in various sizes between 5 to 10 cm wide, and you get several options between a monochrome E-ink screen to a 4-colour E-ink screen. A 5 cm monochrome price label that you can see in large hypermarket stores will cost on average 6 EUR per label or 550 EUR per 100 labels.
Apart from the cost of the ESL labels, there are several aspects that influence the total cost calculation: shop audit (free), RFP proposal, ERP connection, set-up and installation costs. After the audit and your known requirements, we make a budgeted proposal with different ESL options that meet your needs.
How much time do ESL price tags last and how reliable are they?
In most cases, standard ESL price tags last about 7-10 years max depending on many factors.
In an ESL project, we have a standard warranty in the first 2 years of the project deployment, but we can include the maintenance of the installation to avoid no price tag defect at all, or a certain number of defects, or agree on a threshold to replace price tags.
Who can I contact for an urgent ESL project?
For a new store project (urgent or not), you can start by scheduling a demo meeting which we can do virtually or physically depending on the situation. We can discuss directly to a store manager for his own store or to a group retail manager for multiple stores. For an existing ESL project, you can also use the contact form here to get our help.
We have teams of in-house project managers and technical consultants that are included depending on the project steps and your needs. We can of course bring in SES Vusion smart label experts if the project requirements are complex, the location has unique challenges or your ERP software setup is particular.
How fast can ESL be implemented?
The turnaround of a project can be very rapid from a few weeks to several months depending on the progress of the ESL project for your store.
This schedule is agreed with you and can be adapted based on your milestones. We are an independent team of ESL experts and will bring in our own network of price tag technicians, electricians, fixture specialists... depending on the project size, complexity, urgency or the geographic location.
The best way is to contact us and we will let you know what your options are. There are no hidden costs or hidden project tasks. We openly share and discuss the ESL implementation and the setup of the connected price tags.
Who can answer questions for ESL?
You can either fill the contact form here to schedule a meeting or virtual call, either visit the contact page to call the helpdesk team. Depending on the problem or the technical needs, we will dedicate a consultant to check with you directly or a small team of experts to answer your questions. No hidden cost, full transparency.
For any store, there is a unique situation or setup that will guide the best ESL solution depending on whether it is a food store (e.g. Lidl, Colruyt...), a sports equipment store (e.g. Decathlon...) or a DIY store (e.g. Gedimat...).
It is important for us to provide you with good answers that allow you to make an informed decision on the critical ESL goals (e.g. dynamic pricing, integrity with webshop...), the impact ESL has for your store or customers (e.g. promotions, fresh food waste management...), and what vision you have for your store that ESL can help unlock (e.g. increase revenue,customer satisfaction, boost innovation...).
