The Merchandiser®





Take Your Labels From Scale To Upscale™

Your ability to move more product from shelf to cart isn’t just about what you’re promoting; it’s how you promote it.

The Merchandiser® system allows you to enhance the appearance of your products by quickly creating and customizing labels to match your company’s unique brand values—on-site and on-demand.

Our software uses your database, including customized item lists and a “drill-down” item category menu, providing an easy user experience, as well as available training videos on printer and software operations for users in store.

Custom Labels for Food Packaging and More

Food Label Printer Software

Our proprietary software for The Merchandiser® allows each label to have different information such as product name, sauce, ingredients, and nutritional facts, in order to be customized and placed on a different product. It also allows you to print several consecutive labels quickly and place them on like products. We continue to evolve and enhance our software regularly to add benefits and ensure that it is user friendly. Our software also allows you to print any style of nutrition fact panel, whether it is new or old.

A user can edit an ingredient list or item as needed in the store if you choose to have it set up that way, or a central administrator can update a networked system to reflect a change across several stores using The Merchandiser®. We offer technical database support to ensure you have the solution you need.

Shelf2Cart partners with NICELABEL™, a leader in professional barcode software, and makes it even more user-friendly. The Merchandiser® will not only meet your labeling needs, but it will surpass them by making your workflow more efficient and hassle-free.

The Merchandiser® has earned a NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program) certification through extensive testing and evaluation done by the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) to ensure its meets all the government standards and requirements set by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), making the software ‘Legal-for-Trade'.
