The NetTickIT app has been designed to simplify store processes and maintain compliance at the shelf edge. Deployed and hardened in the field through years of constant use we have now enhanced the app by layering augmented reality across the functionality to bring the experience alive.

Misalignment of shelf edge labels and real-time POS pricing is a constant challenge and can be a costly one; both in terms of profit but also a negative customer experience. We have made the task of checking for out of sync labels, easier, quicker and more engaging for the store operative thus reducing errors. Using an Android or iOS device Augmented Reality (AR) simply turns the correct labels green and incorrect labels red. This quick visual prompt alerts the operative, who then simply reprints the label on a mobile printer, either worn on a belt or hung around the shoulder on a strap and replaced immediately. Larger signs can be directed to an appropriate network printer.
Print Signs Functionality
Whilst carrying out normal duties an operative spots a damaged or dirty label, they simply scan the barcode, print and replace. Perhaps the labels are missing altogether. Having scanned the physical product on the shelf the AR capability will produce an image of the product on the operative’s device and confirm it is correctly positioned on the right shelf. Hit print and replace on the shelf edge. A process that previously took minutes now takes seconds with Augmented Reality.
