Space Management

Planogram Scorecards

Challenge:

Category Managers, buyers, and Space planners need to know what’s happening on the shelf, and want scorecards that predict the impact that will be made by new assortment decisions. The ability to compare a previous to a proposed plan is something every merchandising professional requires during the category refresh process. Deriving insights as to how proposed plans may impact write-downs, store reset labor, shelf tags, and profitability is critical prior to the release of plans to reset crews.

Solution:

Planomart enables category management teams to quickly produce space scorecards that are used to compare space information and performance metrics over time. Reports provide shelf insights generated using aggregated data with drill-down functionality to item level details. Scorecards quickly identify distribution and space measures, shelf issues for over / under supply, and Fair Share Indexing (FSI), using space measures and performance data.
