The SkiClicker™ concept, with its patented products, makes the presence of ski boots during binding adjustment obsolete. According to Arvidsson, customers experience an easier, faster and less-stressful rental process because they do not have to take off their ski boots. Ski rental shops are able to ensure greater customer satisfaction, while the staff benefits from a hygienic and ergonomic workplace. Among the ski rental companies already working with SkiClicker are Skistar, Intersport and Skiset.
