So we all know everything is BIGGER in Texas right? Texas has division one-like football stadiums and facilities for their high school football teams; the TAAS test (don't ask), and sometimes they fly the Texas flag higher than the American flag..if not, then at the same height. It’s just the way things are down there. Trust me, I know. I used to live in Texas. I loved Texas while I was there.
The picture above is one of the 5 largest high school stadiums in Texas! Pretty Awesome! And...pretty unrealistic for a high school in the midwest. So you could imagine Texas football teams have the best of the best of everything, including their equipment storage.
While a school in southern Wisconsin or northern Illinois may not be able to afford a $20 million stadium for their boys, they can definatley afford the same quality athletic equipment storage. Spacesaver’s Wheelhouse Mobile Storage System is used by most of the major NFL and big college football teams. But most athletic directors and coaches don’t realize high school teams across the country can also use it.
Take a look at the picture below. This is the way approximately 70% of America's high schools are storing their athletic equipment.

Two helmets per player, one for the game and one for practice. And with 157 players on the team that equals 314 helmets to find a home for! Normally one might think this type of squad would take up a ton of storage space…true or false? The answer is false, with Spacesaver’s Wheelhouse Mobile System.
See for yourself! Check out this video showcasing The Nebraska Cornhusker Football equipment room storage.
According to Husker equipment manager Jay Terry, “The equipment room is a high-tech storage area with movable parts.” Spacesaver’s automated mobile storage system stores Husker football equipment from Adidas cleats and jerseys to shoulder pads and helmets.

What do you do when your workers are wasting precious time hiking across the building to retrieve poorly located raw materials or essential supplies -precious time that should be spent manufacturing your products? What do you when you know this inefficieny is all it takes to leave the door wide open for competion to take your business? What do you do...you come up with a plan to solve it as quickly and cost effectively as possible, right? So a major rework or expansion of your facility doesn't seem like a real good route and it's not likely your CFO is real loose with the purse strings lately anyway...besides, you need to move quickly!
This is the predicament Proteus Packaging out of Franklin, Wis. was facing. They needed to come up with a better storage solution for it's existing 246,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility. And they had to do it quickly if they wanted to stay competitive in the paperboard package manufacturing industry.
Proteus Packaging teamed up with Tim Weidenfeller of Storage Systems Midwest, Waukesha, Wis. to help resolve their storage efficiency challenge. The Solution: ActivRAC™ mobilized storage system by Spacesaver® Industrial.
Not familiar with mobilized storage? Watch this video to see what it's all about!
The ActivRAC system Tim designed with Proteus Packaging utilizes their existing shelving, which is mounted on top of mobilized carriages that move side-to-side on a rail system to eliminate dedicated aisle space between shelving. This gave Proteus Packaging the extra space needed to put its incredibly limited, yet mission-critical, flexo plate storage space to work. The ActivRAC system positions the plates close to the presses – exactly where they’re needed. Operators easily and quickly open aisles to gain 100 percent access to plates at all times, speeding the process of plate change-outs. Today it only takes a few minutes to find plates, which translates into more press uptime and increased revenue.
Tim Wayman, Proteus Packaging Executive Vice President/COO stated, “With the ActivRAC system, it only takes a couple of minutes to access plates. By not having to travel farther for those materials during plate change-outs, we avoid nearly a half-hour of press downtime per day. Given that we only make money when the presses are running, putting storage to work is something that matters to us.”

What if…..your already scarce nursing staff could spend two-and-a-half more hours every 12 hour shift, focusing on patients; instead of running around the fifth floor like a chicken with their head cut off looking for a gauze pad?
What if…..your floor, wing, or entire healthcare system could go a straight 270 days without a hospital acquired infection?
What if…..your storage process could reduce traffic in patient rooms by as much as 75 percent?
Guess what….. IT’S HAPPENING!
Just ask the hospital operated by ThedaCare in Appleton, Wis. They achieved the goals mentioned above by re-evaluating their current storage system and incorporated a new type of storage that puts 85 percent of the most frequently used supplies steps from the patient bedside.
The numbers don’t lie, and it certainly helps to look good when you have to report to the CFO every month. How much would you give to report statistics like ThedaCare did? While ThedaCare was creating their impressive stat sheet, they also achieved patient scores above 90 percent for overall satisfaction. The juice is proving it’s worth the squeeze as ThedaCare experiences huge returns on their investment. By combining a new approach to patient care and redesigning the patient floor with a few unique innovations, ThedaCare has:
- Lowered the cost of care by 21 percent
- Reduced the length of patient stays by 17 percent
- Produced 100 percent compliance in nearly all quality measures
With all the wasted efforts nurses are facing, Spacesaver saw an opportunity to try and help better the system and made it a priority to study how your staff can spend more time delivering direct patient care. The results of this study produced CoreSTOR™ patient server. Here are some of the specific problems that were solved by developing a new way of storing supplies:
1. Keep clean linens from being confused with soiled linens
2. Eliminate time spent “hunting and gathering” by nurses
3. Eliminate in room traffic and interruptions in patient rooms
4. Reduce hospital acquired infections
Within all of these problems lies one key solution: Decentralization. Think about it; all of your nurses probably have one centralized supply room that they use on the floor, which necessitates hunting and gathering. By eliminating centralization and incorporating supplies directly inside and outside each patient room, you are essentially solving all four of the aforementioned problems.
ThedaCare tested the CoreSTOR patient server in one wing of their hospital system and experienced tremendous returns both financially and in the delivery of patient care. They are now requesting additional installs into other parts of their hospital.
CoreSTOR has been designed to build a decentralized nurse station inside and outside of each patient room, reducing in-room traffic, optimizing floor plans and room design to best serve the patient. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jamie Dunham, a lead nurse on the pilot project, Transforming Care, at ThedaCare hospital in Appleton, states her point of view,"If they (nurses) have what they need, they don't have to leave the patient constantly and apologize." Dunham also said, "They are still tired at the end of a shift, because nursing is demanding work, but they have [more] satisfaction with the work that they do. In nurse surveys, the satisfaction rate has jumped 68 percent.”
