Coop Denmark: Keeping it Simple

Posted by Paul Milner on Aug 17, 2016 7:00:00 AM

Coop Denmark, a giant of the Danish retail industry, operates in the competitive and fast-moving convenience sector. It has revenues of approximately DKK 50 billion (US $9.2 billion), employs 35,000 people, has more than 1.7 million members and operates through several brands including Kvickly, SuperBrugsen, Dagli’Brugsen and coop.dk.

As is common with many retailers, store staff were tied up in time-consuming and
expensive processes to manually manage shelf-edge pricing and promotions. To reduce this time and cost, and improve pricing accuracy, Coop Denmark looked for a more efficient way to manage these processes. It ultimately decided to deploy our Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs).

Working to Make a Difference with Food Wastage

At Displaydata, we are encouraged by the new standard leading
grocery retailers worldwide continue to set for the rest of the industry. And, as we blogged about last October, tecnology’s role in the effort to reduce food wastage globally is continually growing. In retail, dynamic pricing is being implemented by grocers to strategically price perishable items throughout the day, to encourage shoppers to purchase those items. In our experience, we’ve found retailers that decrease pricing by 1% throughout the day, see an increase in sales of 2.62% on average. To further reduce their environmental impact, retailers are using digital signage like ESLs to display the pricing changes instead of traditional paper tags, allowing for a more flexible pricing strategy without excess waste.
