At ECS Global Inc., we provide a promotion planning solution with our ECS5 Media Suite (ECS5). ECS5 is a cloud-based retail management system used by businesses and institutions throughout the world. With this system, you can integrate all of your communication channels and provide a consistent message throughout your store and across locations.
ECS5 integrates seamlessly into your existing infrastructure to help you manage price changes and promotions, planograms, price tag and signage printing, digital signage, and email and social media communications.
ECS5 eliminates inefficiencies, improves the customer experience, and amplifies your brand by unifying communication from the point of sale to the shelf edge, establishing a consistent message between all print, digital and display technologies that drive store success.
Planning Retail Promotion
ECS5 allows you to manage all of your communications from one place which makes it much easier to spread the message about special promotions. Printing promotional price tags and signage, managing digital signage and displays, and spreading the word of your promotion through email and social media is tedious and inefficient when using separate software systems.
ECS5 integrates all of these methods of communication so you can deliver consistent information about your promotion to all of these channels quickly and efficiently from one source.
ECS5 is a cloud-based software so the information you enter into the system about your promotion can be distributed to all of your communication channels in multiple store locations. Promotional signage can be managed efficiently using the Media Manager within ECS5.
Using promotion plan templates within the system, you can easily create signage, including digital and print signage, that include the details of the promotion. Signage can be printed using mobile handheld devices and printers and digital signage can be distributed to all TV screens and digital displays within your store and in other locations in an instant.
Pricing can also be changed within the system if you are running a promotion that involves a sale on certain items. You can program the sale price ahead of time so that it takes effect as soon as the promotion begins.
If your store uses digital shelf tags, the prices on these tags will change automatically at the proper time. You can also set the right number of paper price tags to print with the new price which cuts down on wasted or inaccurate labels.
