The ESLs installed in Beijing Wumart Hypermarkets are divided into more than ten different display templates, such as normal, membership, promotion, price reduction, and out-of-stock labels, with different styles and colors. The staff of Wumart headquarters can implement a price strategy for any commodities in each store through the computer-side software platform, and the store staff can also adjust the price of the commodities through mobile terminal according to the actual sales situation of the day. ESLs can display striking promotion information, such as highlighted in red, so that consumer can easily recognize on-sale products. ESLs release merchants from the time-consuming price tag replacement work and enables them to spend more time on helping customers.

And the application of ESL can solve the operating pain points of fresh products for Wumart.
