Powered by SPINS Product Intelligence, retailers and suppliers can now dynamically upgrade Smart Shelf Tags to help consumers discover products that fulfill their needs
TAMPA, October 15 2021 — SPINS, a leading wellness-focused data, analytics and technology provider in the U.S., and Cornerstone for Natural, the industry’s premier business, accounting, and consumer engagement software provider, have partnered to enhance Cornerstone’s ELI Code™ and Smart Shelf Tag™ solutions.
Smart Shelf Tags are retail shelf tags equipped with patented ELI Codes, that when scanned by a smartphone, display rich and exciting digital content such as videos, PDFs, web content, images, and product content & attributes to engage and educate in-store shoppers. Smart Shelf Tags also support retailers by providing an effective and inexpensive way for suppliers to train their retailer’s in-store associates to help make them more knowledgeable and passionate about the products they sell.
Cornerstone will incorporate SPINS Product Intelligence data to its solution to help retailers easily implement Smart Shelf Tags for their private label products and to equip suppliers with a cost-effective solution to add advanced product content to their ELI Codes.
