Optimise performance with sales data and model stores

By integrating your planogram software, StoreSpace® overlay sales, movement and profit heatmaps onto your floor plans, so you can clearly see where your space allocation is successful and where categories are underperforming.

Used in conjunction with the model stores’ functionality, you can plan your macro space using the ideal category space allocation for a specific store type, based on past performance.

Our Format Development Manager can assist you in creating your store models, defining targets for category space allocation and planning principles for store layouts.

Organising your planograms directly within your floor plans

As a Nielsen Connected Partner we have closely integrated StoreSpace® with the Nielsen Planogram software connecting micro and macro space management data and processes.

You can simply ‘drag and drop’ your planograms onto the fixtures on your AutoCAD .dwg floor plans. StoreSpace® makes the connection with the planogram software, validating sizes as well as identifying any fixtures without planograms.

And if you don’t have AutoCAD licences our StoreSpace® Planner licence provides an alternative solution giving you all the functionality of our StoreSpace® toolset without the need for a separate AutoCAD licence.

Creating a productive store planning environment

StoreSpace® integrates AutoCAD into the planning environment, enabling your store planners to work directly within the .dwg drawing, rather than tracing on top. This creates a store plan which is THE single version of truth accessible to all stakeholders via the StoreSpace® portal.

Using StoreSpace’s intelligent AutoCAD block library, floor plans are kept up to date, duplications are avoided, and the store planning reports are based on accurate information.

While the intuitive StoreSpace toolset guides the store planning process to deliver the ideal mix of category space within an error-free floor plan. Creating company-wide trust in the quality of your store plan data.

You can also access your StoreView 360 virtual tours within the StoreSpace portal, providing an easy reference to the physical reality during the store planning process.
