FlexRoller in Action Loading video…
FlexRoller ensures that products are always fronted
Gravity Glides often create artificial out-of-stock

You don’t have to worry about product falling down or rollers not working

^ (Store stocking staff, C-store)

We enjoy working in the beverage section now. The old system was very time consuming. Thanks

^ (Store stocking staff, C-store)

Products always slide down and move forward therefore it is easier and faster to restock

^ (Store staff, C-store)

All of the other managers that come into my store are jealous and want those roller glide

^ (Store manager, Drug store)

Saving about an hour a day would really help especially since they are cutting my payroll

^ (Store manager, C-store)

There is no need to front the shelf – it always looks great

^ (Store manager, C-store)

This is the best shelf system I have ever used for the cold vault shelves

^ (Store manager, C-store)

Gravity glides are OK until reset – then you need to break it off, shorten it, don’t have right size, difficult to change

^ (Store reset manager, C-store chain)

Customers want fast service and convenience – FlexRoller allows that through permanent fronting

^ (Store manager, C-store)

It saves time on some tasks like rotating stock and not having to push products forward because they slide easily on the rollers!

^ (Store staff, C-store)

Stock rotation, filling, and cleaning takes much less time with the new racks.

^ (Store staff, C-store)

Too many SKU’s not enough space. I’ve been looking for a flexible system and now I found one

^ (Store Manager C-store)

Spending less time in the cooler is a win. Staff can do other jobs in the store

^ (Regional Manager C-store)

I think they’re great. Easy back filling, means everything doesn’t have to be taken off the shelves for dusting.

“More facings of several sodas, means that we do not have to stock as often because we do not run out on the shelf. Also less facing because rollers allow product to stay faced.”

Feed-back from Store managers (New Zealand January 2011)

“The main benefit is of course is the rotation. There is no excuse for poor rotation with the new set up once the training has been completed.” (Foodstuffs) “I think they’re great. Easy back filling, means everything doesn’t have to be taken off the shelves for dusting.” (Healtheries) “They look tidier and we don’t have to worry about attaching them to the shelves with zip ties, they are more secure than a stand.” (Healtheries) “The new racking shows up less dust and looks professional, therefore the appearance of the category is better.” (Red Seal Natural Health) “Stock rotation, filling, and cleaning of the lids takes much less time with the new racks.” (Red Seal Natural Health) “Because the product automatically moves forward customers can always see a product if there is stock on the shelf. This is important particularly for the products located on the lower racks. Again helps improve category appearance.” (Red Seal Natural Health)
