“Jonas Vestin has led Pricer since autumn 2014, and we are grateful for his contributions to stabilize the company financially and operationally in several respects. We are now stepping up the pace of strategic development of the leading position Pricer has in its market and consequently has identified the need for a different profile for the CEO role.

The development of so-called ‘omni-channel’ retailing is supporting electronic pricing as a tool to optimize the stores for in-store purchases as well as for their online shopping. Pricer’s system makes the picking in the store more rational and the digital solutions support the new consumer demands for more information as well as quickly finding products in the store.”
