METTLER TOLEDO Retail at EuroShop 2017 (Hall 6 – Booth E61)

Gießen, January 31, 2017 – Expertise in the backroom, barrier-free self-service weighing, Retail 4.0 with MTRS: METTLER TOLEDO
Retail is headed to Düsseldorf for EuroShop 2017 (March 5-9) with its extended product portfolio
and many innovations in tow.

Spread over six focus areas, METTLER TOLEDO Retail will present its Perfectly Placed Weighing Solutions for Leading Grocery Retailers – the motto of this year’s EuroShop appearance – in Hall 6, Booth E61.

In the backroom focus area, METTLER TOLEDO will introduce the new Auto Wrapper 880 for weighing, wrapping and labeling. “EuroShop 2017 is the kick-off to a roadshow where we will be presenting our backroom expertise on-site to the retail community in the coming weeks and months,” says Lutz Nungesser, METTLER TOLEDO Business Area Manager Retail Central Europe. “The Auto Wrapper 880 is the flagship of our portfolio expansion for the backroom. It’s one of the most compact machines in its class, designed to minimize total cost of ownership.”

Barrier-free self-service weighing is one of the main topics of the fruit and vegetables focus area. About 1.5 million people in Germany are wheelchair users.
Lutz Nungesser: “At EuroShop 2017, we’ll show just how much easier it could be for wheelchair users to shop in the fresh produce department with a variant of our FreshWay V touchscreen scales as a barrier-free self-service scale.” The scale offers functions such as assistance calls and meets accessibility requirements such as Austria’s Federal Disability Equality Act.

In Düsseldorf, METTLER TOLEDO will also be launching its new modular and powerful software suite MTRS for efficient weighing and configuration management. MTRS manages comprehensive software distribution rollouts in the blink of an eye, with marketing and category management also benefiting from easy access to all devices on the sales floor. Retailers can use MTRS to centrally manage their METTLER TOLEDO devices throughout their entire life cycle. Lutz Nungesser: “MTRS doesn’t just seamlessly connect weighing infrastructure to the retailer’s ERP system.
We see a lot of potential for the suite to open doors to Retail 4.0 concepts.”

Information on other METTLER TOLEDO innovations at EuroShop 2017 will be available soon.
