Are the team members changing prices senior managers making them some of the most expensive labor on the floor? There is no answer that is the same since store variables such as size and location are unique for everybody.
Access to Environmental Data
Some ESL devices even have sensors to detect additional information, such as temperature, and warn you when your refrigeration levels reach threatening levels. This allows you to fix the problem before it results in spoiled products and reduced profit margin.
