Tally sensor pads accurately collect inventory

  • Multiple pads are daisy chained together and work with all types of shelf fixtures.
  • Pads are durable, waterproof, and also work in coolers and freezers.

“We are working with TALLY Solutions… We have Smart Shelf deployed in over twenty stores… The technology can also send out-of-stock alerts to store personnel and distributors. So far the system has been very successful in deterring far more events than actual theft.”

Scott Ziter

Chair of the FMI Asset Protection Council
National Anti-Organized Retail Crime Association.

”Results of the offender interviews for the Smart Shelf were positive receiving our highest scores for "Get It" and "Fear It”… This solution’s unique ability to alert store personnel and potential thieves in real time while theft activity is occurring at the shelf is worth consideration."
