A real-life case study using kostklip's ClearGrip™:

Customer Challenge:

A company with nearly 300 stores using a conventional ticket molding program were looking at ways to reduce labor and material costs at the shelf edge.

They had non-adhesive paper price labels which were changed 500 times/week, and adhesive bibs that were changed 3,000 times/week. Price Changers communicated to Operations that the adhesive sign bibs were time consuming and messy to apply and Merchandising noticed the adhesive residue left behind. Most importantly, Operations and Merchandising noticed their adhesive signs wouldn't hold up in humid environments and their marketing dollars were being found at the bottom of their coolers and freezers.

Kostklip’s Proposal:

Upon reviewing the customers challenge, kostklip® proposed switching to kostklip's ClearGrip™ program which would eliminate the customers current adhesive bib challenges and problems.

ClearGrips' built-in sign grip provides a unique cold formulation allowing the sign grip to stay flexible in the toughest of environments, while providing quick and easy sign changes regardless of temperature or humidity.

Kostklip's Solution:

During consultation and store testing, it was determined that using kostklip's ClearGrip™ program, the customer would save $300,000 per year in material costs, and $3,179,000 per year in labor expenses. This allowed the customer to redirect their annual savings of $3,479,000 to other areas of the business. This customer saved $66,900 per week by switching to kostklip’s ClearGrip™ program and the Return on Investment only took 7.3 months.

Additional savings were also achieved by utilizing kostklip's store installation programs. Kostklip® provided the customer training, videos, documents and their expertise; allowing the customer's employees to manage and install the rollout themselves. By teaching the customer how to fully implement their project, the company saved over 50% on the total rollout cost vs using an outside services company.

The customer also had a requirement for a special water resistant ticket molding, for use in their meat and dairy departments. They enlisted the services of kostklip’s in house Engineering team to produce a new and unique ticket molding that exceeded the customers’ requirements.

By switching to kostklip's ClearGrip™ program, the customer was able to revitalize the look of their stores, while providing cost savings for new initiatives such as marketing and improving the consumer’s in-store shopping experience.
