Optimise your store layouts and improve performance with StoreSpace®’s intuitive and integrated AutoCAD-based space planning software.

Creating profitable store layouts requires the meticulous planning of the customer journey understanding the successful positioning of categories to ensure selling space is optimised and customers are satisfied. Whether you are designing new stores or remodelling existing ones, StoreSpace® retail space planning software enables you to:

  • identify opportunities for improving your store layouts and maximise your selling space
  • simplify and speed up the planning process;
  • use best performing stores as models to plan and adjust other stores;
  • plan your macro space linking directly from your Nielsen planogram software to your AutoCAD .dwg floor plans;
  • view, report and share all information held in your store plans;

Identify opportunities to improve your store layout

With StoreSpace you can access information from your floor plans, your planograms and your sales data via Nielsen. You can highlight plans to show over and under-performing categories and compare existing plans to an ideal ‘model store’.

With this intelligence you will be able to identify opportunities to improve the performance of your store layouts. As well as rebalancing space and using reporting tools to understand which other stores have the same opportunity for improvement.

Simplify and speed up the space planning process

Integral to StoreSpace is our AutoCAD planning toolset. This enables your retail planners to work productively directly within AutoCAD .dwg store drawings. Comparing layouts to model stores and other data sets to guide the floor planning process.

By building intelligence directly into your existing AutoCAD block library, floor plans are kept up to date, duplicate data and plans are avoided and reports are based on accurate information. You can save time and costs by working efficiently, removing duplication and building trust in your data.

And if you don’t have AutoCAD licences our StoreSpace Planner licence provides an alternative solution for your floor planning giving you all the functionality of our StoreSpace toolset together with necessary AutoCAD features.

Using best performing stores as models to plan against

Using the model-led design function within StoreSpace you can build your store plans on space models that have been proven to work. By defining what good looks like in terms of area, department and planogram mix, StoreSpace can guide your planner to achieve the ideal mix using colour overlays on the plan.

As a Nielsen Connected Partner we can closely integrate your Nielsen Planogram software suite with StoreSpace, connecting your micro and macro space management data and processes.

By driving the ‘store to planogram’ relationship from with your AutoCAD .dwg files you simply identify fixtures without planograms. Whats more, you can also validate that planograms will fit the allocated fixture. And visualise the product adjacency directly from the floor plan.

View, report and share all information held in your store plans

StoreSpace’s online portal stores and reports on all the retail space assets across your estate. It is populated directly from your AutoCAD floor plans.

You can easily view plans, create reports at store, cluster or whole estate levels on a wide range of elements. These include equipment, areas, categories, planograms and sales versus linear space. Sharing this information with colleagues and accessing this information does not require an AutoCAD licence. This means you can share it with all the relevant stakeholders.

You can also use our StoreView virtual tours as an easy reference to the physical reality reducing the need for costly store visits.
