RELEX Solutions has launched a planogram collaboration portal for localized in-store planning, stock allocation and planograms. The solution is designed to enable effective collaboration within retail operations and across the supply chain, leading to faster and more informed decision making and increased in-store sales.
With the cloud-based solution, head office merchandisers can view and edit planograms simultaneously with other stakeholders, such as vendors and category captains.
Additionally, users can view and edit planograms in real time on any device from anywhere in the world, removing the need for planograms and PDFs to be sent back and forth between stakeholders, accelerating the approval and publishing process.
Store managers can use a 3D viewer to see planograms proposed by the planning team. The solution enables users to request local range changes and run what-if-scenarios with a drag-and-drop interface. 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.
A new feedback and compliance feature also assists retailers in ensuring their stores are fully compliant, and that potential issues, such as missing products and wrong number of facings, are flagged before becoming problems.
