Addressing Pain Points
The implementation of RetailOS aimed to alleviate Monoprix’s pricing and promotion challenges. The system’s prowess lay in its ability to seamlessly manage dynamic pricing strategies and promotional changes across a vast array of products, a task that previously posed significant hurdles for Monoprix.
Stephane, the store manager at Monoprix, reflected on the challenges prior to ReaLo’s introduction, stating, “Juggling in-store promotional campaigns and maintaining competitive pricing was often a struggle. The expenses tied to marketing prints weighed heavily on our finances.”
Much like in its previous collaborations, ReaLo’s RetailOS proved to be a game-changer. By leveraging predetermined product attributes and aesthetics, the software automated the generation of accurate and visually engaging price labels. This not only removed the need for manual price tag changes but also introduced captivating animations, catching the eye of customers within Monoprix’s bustling stores.

The Shelfer, the flagship application, was tailored for executives and location managers. It introduced a structured organizational system for product placement and monitored price tags and stock levels, enabling swift, data-driven adjustments to optimize product performance.
The Linker, on the other hand, was a user-friendly app for in-store employees. It provided a platform to efficiently upload accurate price tags by scanning product barcodes, ensuring real-time updates and precise pricing without overwhelming staff with administrative responsibilities.
Stephane further highlighted the usability of the in-store management tool, saying, “Our in-store management tool is remarkably user-friendly and intuitive. It empowers us to handle everything seamlessly. Price adjustments occur instantly, and we can tweak our offers in real-time.”
Customization and Integration
ReaLo’s approach centered on tailoring RetailOS to fit Monoprix’s specific requirements. By customizing every facet of the system, from label quantity to design and placement, ReaLo ensured seamless integration with Monoprix’s existing infrastructure. The transition was smooth, thanks to ReaLo’s expertise and Monoprix’s readiness to embrace technological advancements. The store manager’s observations were evident as Stephane noted, “With ReaLo, we’ve seen a remarkable spike in sales for the featured items. These screens offer unparalleled flexibility in shelf arrangements, enabling effortless and dynamic product promotion.”
