What is planogram compliance?
A shelf set or a fixture is considered perfectly compliant when all products are placed according to the planogram; in right locations, in correct quantities, with adequate facings, and with appropriate tags telling about accurate product and price information.
How to achieve compliance?
To accurately measure compliance, it is necessary to frequently verify if the products on shelf spaces are same as those in the planogram. There are many methods to ensure planogram compliance. One of the methods which is widely used is manual and time-consuming.
According to one of the legacy models, the sales force takes a print out of the planogram template and mark all those products or shelf spaces by standing in front of the shelf and find a solution by themselves, in case of non-compliance, which may not be the best possible solution.
It has become crucial for retailers to leverage on modern technologies to find solutions that would help them stock their shelves accurately and with lesser effort.
What if you have a system which helps your sales force quickly access the planogram template online, from a handheld device, mark the products on shelves as such in the store and share it among the power users or category management team?
While there may be several solutions, the 2-planogram strategy is here for rescue!
If you are using the 2 planogram strategy things will fall in place much easier. The sales force can mark and share the current store appearance to the power users, shelf by shelf. The shelf spaces can then be identified and checked for compliance by an instant and thorough analysis by the category management team. This strategy helps you achieve compliance with lesser effort and under the supervision of experts.
You just need to ensure that you are using a planogram which has the necessary feature to convert the planogram files to any format especially to PSA file format and vice versa for easy execution of space management processes.
