Compared to paper labels, the use of electronic labels is much more environmentally friendly and flexible in handling. The contents of the labels no longer have to be changed manually by employees, but can be updated centrally using the appropriate software. Electronic shelf labels also have low power consumption, as the battery life is designed to last for several years. Digital labels offer the possibility of labeling complete storage shelves electronically. Changes are made automatically via control with the merchandise management system. In addition to product information, QR and barcodes or NFC can also be depicted on the displays and highlighted by different colors. Other advantages of e-ink-based labels include the display of location-based data. This means that individual objects can be found without a long search using integrated LED lighting.
