1. Labor Savings
Save over $6.800 in labor costs!
In order for floral product at your retail locations to have maximum life, it must be recut before being placed into the merchandising fixture. According to best practice standards, all product should be recut when it arrives, regardless of wet-pack or dry-pack. Therefore, there is no additional labor cost to receive solely in dry-pack and processing at store level (see below). In fact, labor is reduced because employees no longer have to deal with the collection, reduction and disposal of wet pack shipping materials.
Experience has shown that your floral staff will be able to process flowers at store level in half the time using StemPro cutters compared to manual cutting methods, essentially cutting your labor costs in half.
In the hypothetical situation above, where it takes 10 hours a week to cut flowers and the loaded hourly pay for a floral employee is $18, the average monthly savings in labor costs with StemPro cutters would be $360. On this basis alone, StemPro cutters will pay for themselves in less than 18 months.
