IMI smartShelf Data Delivery


Conceived to be "electronic shelf paper" sensing and reporting the presence of shelf items, the IMI smartShelf™ is a thin (0.006") printed sensor with adhesive backing that is trimmed to fit each shelf's width and depth. The "smarts" of the IMI smartShlef is a low power microcontroller chip that is interfaced to a communications link capable reporting locally or to a central host database.

IMI smartShelf adapts to retail, security and remote inventory management applications with ease and flexibility. Based on a train-by-example set up process the IMI smartShelf quickly is configured to application requirements.

IMI smartShelf Data Delivery

The IMI smartShelf delivers meaningful, timely results:

-  Minimize Out of Stock (OOS) events

-  Reduce distribution costs (chain improvements) 

-  Detection & alert to sweeps (reduce shoplifting)

-  Identify consumer buying protocols (research)

-  Track new product sales in real-time (market tests)

-  Recognize incorrectly returned items (wrong shelf)

The IMI smartShelf is "smart" because:

- No change to item packaging
- No RFID chips required
- No barrier to benefits
- No privacy issues
- No capital investment in IMI’s data service business model

 Answers to Basic Questions:

- How fast is the product leaving the shelf?
- What products next to restock to avoid OOS?
- How long was a product OOS?
- How long to OOS after restock alert?
- Is product test market research data valid?
- Which display/location is most effective?
- Is there a wrong product in assigned space?
