Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

Claims:

1. An electronic label system, the system comprising:

a plurality of electronic labels including a display, the electronic labels configured to display first sets of information associated with sets of like physical objects disposed in a facility;

a first computing system in communication with the plurality of electronic labels, the first computing system configured to:

determine a quantity of at least one set of like physical objects in the sets of like physical object disposed in the facility is below a threshold amount;

encode a hyperlink into a first machine-readable element in response to determining that the quantity is below the threshold;

transmit the first machine-readable element to at least one of the electronic labels that is associated with the at least one set of like physical objects,

wherein in response to receiving the first machine readable element the at least one of the electronic labels is configured to automatically change the display to render the first machine-readable element, and

a portable electronic device including a scanner and a display, the portable electronic device being configured to:

initiate a first session with a second computing system in response to executing an application associated with the facility;

scan and decode, using the scanner, the first machine-readable element; and navigate to a domain hosted by the second computing system, the domain associated with the hyperlink encoded in the first machine-readable element,

wherein in response to scanning and decoding the first machine-readable element, the second computing system initiates a second session, merges the first and second session, and instructs the portable electronic device to display the second set of information on the domain.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein the first session includes information associated with additional physical objects.

3. The system of claim 2, wherein the second session includes one or more of: the first set of information associated with the at least one set of the like physical objects or information associated with one or more affinity objects.

4. The system of claim 3, wherein the first set of information associated with the at least one set of physical objects is automatically included in the second session in response to the second computing system determining a quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects is available on the domain.

5. The system of claim 4, wherein the second computing system transmits instructions to the domain to automatically ship the quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects to an address associated with portable electronic device in response to the first set of information being included in the second session.

6. The system of claim 1, wherein the second set of information includes an expected date and time of fulfilment of the at least one set of like physical objects.

7. The system of claim 1, wherein the portable electronic device is configured to transmit a device identifier to the second computing system in response to executing the application associated with the facility.

8. The system of claim 7, wherein in response to the portable electronic device scanning the first machine-readable element, the second computing system is configured to:

retrieve information associated with the one or more affinity physical objects based on the device identifier and the at least one set of like physical objects;

and

instruct the portable electronic device to display the information associated with the sets of like physical objects.

9. The system of claim 1, wherein the first set of information includes a second machine-readable element encoded with an identifier associated with the at least one set of like physical objects.

10. The system of claim 1, wherein at least one portable electronic device is configured to transmit a request to reserve a specified quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects to the second computing system in response to scanning and decoding the first machine-readable element.

11. An electronic label method, the method comprising:

displaying, via a plurality of electronic labels including a display, first sets of information associated with sets of like physical objects disposed in a facility;

determining, via a first computing system in communication with the plurality of electronic labels, a quantity of at least one set of like physical objects in the sets of like physical object disposed in the facility is below a threshold amount;

encoding, via the first computing system, a hyperlink into a first machine-readable element in response to determining that the quantity is below the threshold;

transmitting, via the first computing system, the first machine-readable element to at least one of the electronic labels that is associated with the at least one set of like physical objects;

in response to receiving the first machine readable element, automatically changing, via the at least one of the electronic labels, the display to render the first machine-readable element;

initiating, via a portable electronic device including a scanner and a display, a first session with a second computing system in response to executing an application associated with the facility;

scanning and decoding, via the portable electronic device, using the scanner, the first machine-readable element;

navigating, via the portable electronic device, to a domain hosted by the second computing system, the domain associated with the hyperlink encoded in the first machine-readable element;

in response to scanning and decoding the first machine-readable element, initiating, via the second computing system, a second session;

merging, via the second computing system, the first and second session; and instructing, via the second computing system, the portable electronic device to display the second set of information on the domain.

12. The method of claim 11, wherein the first session includes information associated with additional physical objects.

13. The method of claim 12, wherein the second session includes one or more of: the first set of information associated with the at least one set of the like physical objects or information associated with one or more affinity objects.

14. The method of claim 13, wherein the first set of information associated with the at least one set of physical objects is automatically included in the second session in response to the second computing system determining a quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects is available on the domain.

15. The method of claim 14, further comprising transmitting, via the second computing system, instructions to the domain to automatically ship the quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects to an address associated with portable electronic device in response to the first set of information being included in the second session.

16. The method of claim 11, wherein the second set of information includes an expected date and time of fulfilment of the at least one set of like physical objects.

17. The method of claim 11, further comprising transmitting, via the portable electronic device, a device identifier to the second computing system in response to executing the application associated with the facility.

18. The method of claim 17, wherein in response to the portable electronic device scanning the first machine-readable element, further comprising:

retrieving, via the second computing system, information associated with the one or more affinity physical objects based on the device identifier and the at least one set of like physical objects;

and

instructing, via the second computing system, the portable electronic device to display the information associated with the sets of like physical objects.

19. The method of claim 11, wherein the first set of information includes a second machine-readable element encoded with an identifier associated with the at least one set of like physical objects.

20. The method of claim 11, further comprising transmitting, via the at least one portable electronic device, a request to reserve a specified quantity of the at least one set of like physical objects to the second computing system in response to scanning and decoding the first machine-readable element.
