Watch ShelfX in Action
How Does ShelfX Work?
1Stocking the Smart ShelfEquipped with highly sensitive scales, each ShelfX smart shelf knows the exact quantity and type of products that are stocked on it.
2Welcoming ShoppersWith built-in RFID or NFC technology, the ShelfX smart shelf is able to detect a shopper or employee approaching with an RFID-enabled Xcard which contains their complete profile and preferred payment method. (When applicable to the application.
In a smart storage or medical application, the Xcard serves as an access card with pre-programmed access privileges for each employee. Access to inventory and quantities taken of each item are logged for stock safeguarding and optimization.)
3Shopping with EaseAs a shopper walks up to take an item, the ShelfX system offers a personalized welcome. If an item is picked up, it is recorded. If the shopper changes their mind and puts it back on the shelf, ShelfX makes the adjustment.
4Processing Payment and Inventory UpdateShelfX automatically communicates the quantity of the item purchased and its total cost, updates inventory and records the purchase on the shopper’s Xcard for payment processing at the ShelfX Kiosk. With ShelfX, shoppers can also pre-load their Xcard online or via the ShelfX Kiosk at any time, avoiding any payment processing once they have chosen their items.
5Ready for MoreUpon completion, ShelfX offers shoppers suggestions and/or discounts on other relevant nearby products that may be of interest to the buyer.t
