The client, a renowned retail chain with 96 stores across the South of England, was aiming to amplify sales uplift and attract new customers at the shelf edge in a highly competitive retail market. Their existing systems lacked speed and flexibility, hindering swift promotional changes across the store portfolio. The retailer sought to offer customers enhanced access to product information, assisting them in making informed purchase decisions.


To address these challenges, the client chose NetTickIT from Pierhouse, an intelligent signage and ticketing platform, which seamlessly integrated with their product database. This integration allowed for the inclusion of more detailed product descriptions in promotional materials, aiding customers in selecting the best product based on their needs at the shelf edge. Furthermore, the retailer used NetTickIT in conjunction with handheld terminals, enabling staff to order any missing or additional point of sale elements during their store rounds, and collect them later from a back-office printer. The point of sale prints were organized in the store walk order to save staff time. Overall, the solution facilitated a more flexible, dynamic system for managing promotions and ticketing across stores.
