It provides an electronic linkage between the store checkout system and product shelves, thereby ensuring accurate product pricing. Furthermore, the ESL system comes with high durability, prolonged shelf life, replaceable batteries, and can be updated from time to time without any hassle. Owing to the rising trend of automation, electronic shelf labels are widely adopted by all kinds of retail stores, including supermarkets, hypermarkets, specialty stores, departmental stores, etc.
