In the retail world, a product’s position on the shelf greatly affect its performance. With retail shelf space planning becoming more and more important, it is essential to ensure if your shelf space is working at its maximum. A planogramming tool can help you ensure if you are managing your spaces to their full potential.
Many companies use a highly sophisticated planograms like JDA, Apollo, Neilson for their shelf space planning. The user licenses of these software are costly and they require individual licenses to be purchased for the required number of users. Usually the power users like the category management team are given access to these licenses and they create standard planogram designs for the store. But in order to implement the planogram in the store, the planogram design is to be distributed among the sales team or retailers. For this the companies need to purchase read only licenses of the same high-end planogram software which are also costly.
Also, the sales team or the retailer would sometimes need minor variations on the standard planogram. Since the sales team and others own a read only version of the software, they have to wait for category management team to do the modifications. Opening, reviewing, editing and proposing changes on the planogram by experienced teams can take weeks to complete.
