When it comes to your customers’ retail experience, shelf management is one of the most important factors in any store. Well-stocked shelves promote more sales and improve your customers’ experience, while empty or disorganized shelves can reflect poorly on your business. However, shelf management is time-consuming, difficult, and—when labor costs are factored in—expensive. That is why using a shelf management system like spring-loaded shelf pushers, can help retailers provide the best customer experience. These simple systems use a spring-loaded mechanism and rail to push products to the front of a shelf.
Here are some advantages to using spring-loaded shelf management systems.
No matter how hard you attempt to organize your retail shelves, it is inevitable that they will become disorganized or unruly as customers knock over, rearrange, and empty products. Spring-loaded shelf pushers create organized, neat, orderly shelves that do not become disorganized as customers shop. Products are lined in precise rows and, as customers shop, are continuously pushed to the front of the shelf. With a shelf-pusher system, your retail store will appear neater more professional.
One of the biggest costs for retailers is labor, and one of the main responsibilities of hired employees is stocking and organizing shelves. A shelf-management system instantly cuts down on the amount of labor needed to organize shelves, which in turn reduces costs by a large amount. With a shelf pusher system, you do not need employees constantly rearranging or stocking shelves. Once a product is stocked on a shelf, nothing will have to be done until the product is completely sold out.
The retail experience is important for driving sales and encouraging customer spending. By keeping all of your products clearly visible to the customer, spring-loaded shelf pushers can increase the number of sales you make. In this way, shelf pushers can almost act like product displays, presenting products to your customers.
Research has shown that branding is important for customers’ purchasing decisions. Many people like to purchase items they are familiar with or that they recognize. By keeping your products always facing forward—with branding and logos clearly displayed—shelf pushers systems help promote product branding and appeal to customers who like to purchase recognizable brands.
Restock only when Needed
One of the most frustrating tasks involved with shelf management is rotating products by their expiry or sell-by date. If this time-consuming task isn’t performed often, you can end up with expired inventory that has to be thrown out at the expense of your business. Shelf pushers eliminate the need to rotate products by their sell-by date. By constantly pushing products to the front of the shelf, you can sell off your entire old inventory before you have to restock items.
