Micro Space Planning and Planogram Optimization Solution

Well-designed planograms drive sales, reduce stock and enable efficient shelf stacking. RELEX’s micro space planning software makes it easy to create planograms for any fixture and continuously assess their performance while editing. Moreover, automated planogram updates and automatic creation of optimized planograms at all levels, including store-specific plans, maximize the benefits of micro space planning.

Forecast-driven planogramming maximizes the return on shelf space

RELEX’s solution allows planners to fuse the art of visual merchandising with the science of forecasting. In addition to using past sales, you can take full advantage of RELEX’s uniquely powerful demand forecasting engine to produce forecast-driven planograms that accurately reflect trends and seasonality in demand. Our intuitive user-interface continuously provides information on planogram performance, such as expected days of supply, as the planning work progresses.

Case study

East of England Co-op, the UK’s fourth largest consumer cooperative, boosted its sales after implementing a full space and assortment planning solution.

Customer-centric planogramming on a massive scale

No store is average, which means that generic planograms always fail to fit the needs of the individual store. RELEX’s micro space planning solution enables planners to tailor the shopping experience to a store’s customer base by automatically generating optimized planograms at all levels, including store-specific planograms, in minutes. Switching from generic to localized planograms allows for significant sales (up to 3%) and margin increase (up to 1%), improved availability (up to 5%) and inventory turnover, reduced waste and shelf stacking time.

Highlighted features of RELEX’s micro space planning software

Quickly create customer-centric, store-specific planograms

No store is average, which means that generic planograms created for a large group of stores that are shopped differently always fail to fit the needs of individual stores. RELEX’s micro space planning solution enables planners to generate optimized, store-specific planograms automatically, in minutes.

Store-specific planograms take master planograms (created by a planner) and adapt them to accommodate an assortment tailored to local customer demand while maintaining a recognizable merchandising strategy and general look across the brand. The number of facings allocated to different products reflects local assortment and demand, and the fixtures at each individual store.

Planogram any fixture

Create and planogram any display in your stores. Our powerful 3D visualization software is especially useful for reviewing and editing planograms for complex fixtures to fully understand what your store display will really look like. The ability to implement a planogram which accurately reflects even unique fittings ensures that all stores are able to implement the planograms as planned, enabling products to be merchandised in the right place, stores and quantity.

Two-way communication with stores drives sales and increases planogram compliance

Our collaborative software allows store managers to view proposed planograms created by a centralized planning team in an innovative 3D viewer. The state-of-the-art solution enables users to request local range changes and run what-if-scenarios as simply as a drag and drop. Real-time product performance and intelligent validation helps guide in-store users to make better informed decisions around range changes, increasing category and store performance.

Planograms can be viewed and edited in real time on any device, removing the need for files to be sent back and forth between stakeholders, accelerating the approval and publishing process.

 

“RELEX looks at the sales of each product in each individual store, and decides the optimal number of facings. That’s less time spent merchandising, less waste, fewer out of stocks and improved sales.”
