About Store Planning software
Our store planning software is used by some of the world’s largest and sophisticated retailers for space planning and space optimisation, resulting in more profitable stores by linking store selling space to sales performance. Our store planning solution delivers valuable insight on share of space by category and department, producing hot spot analysis for actionable redistribution of space to maximise profits. Due to our store planning software's intuitive design, even the most complex store planning procedures are made easy.
Store planning capabilities
Store planning by Retail Smart provides dimensionally accurate and reliable store plans. The store plans are fully merchandised by category and departments within the floor space of the store. Store planning clearly shows how the store plan should be set out prior to new store openings, remodels and resets.
With our store planning software, store planners can recreate all types of store layouts in a fraction of the time traditional methods take. Once store plans are created, planograms maybe linked or automatically updated as part of the reset programme.
Planograms linked to store planning
Planograms are linked directly to the allocated category space, for further in depth analysis by brand or even at product level. After the planogram review and update processes have been completed, the revised planograms and product data are automatically updated in the store plan.
Analysis & insights
Our Store Planning software delivers high impact reports to perform cross category and cross store analysis. Powerful space verses sales analysis are performed, using sales and profit data combined with departmental and category space allocations. These reports and analysis enable the accurate re-allocating of space during the re-planning process, optimising categories and increases store profits and sales.
Furthermore; store comparison reports help identify both high and low performing stores which is critical to maximising selling space. In addition Store Planning models a number of “what if” scenarios, comparing the impact of various stores, category or department layouts, enabling you to then deploy the best option.
3D store navigation
Store Planning innovative 3D store environment allows navigation of the new store layout. Before consumers shop your new store plan, you can navigate the aisles, testing your store design.
The 3D store provides valuable visual insights, into the perspective of a consumer, due to the aisle being fully merchandised with products found on the planogram.
The 3D view is an excellent decision making tool, for signoff or corrective planning.
