2012 saw the global launch of SES's NFC-tag, the first ever electronic shelf label to communicate directly with shoppers' smartphones.

The NFC-tag is a major breakthrough, which has revolutionized the role of electronic shelf labeling; it provides a new interactive medium capable of delivering an endless array of new services to the consumer:

  • A greater wealth of product information
  • Advice, recipes, etc.;
  • Health warnings / ingredients / allergens
  • Offres et promotions personnalisées
  • Customized special offers and promotions
  • Shopping list
  • Spending control
  • Self-scanning via a smartphone


Creation of an in-store media at shelves

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a wireless communication protocol that allows the transfer of data over very short distances. In practice, all shoppers have to do is place their mobile telephone within a few centimeters of the NFC chip to obtain additional information on the product

The NFC-tag received two innovation awards in 2012:

  • the Gold award in the Shopper Experience category at Equipmag in September, the leading French retail trade show
  • the 1st prize for 'Store Equipment' during the 33rd LSA Innovation Awards in December
