Merchandise your store!

Have you ever experienced any of these problems?

  • Your merchandising manager spends hours on routine report data assessment and manual analysis;
  • In-store product distribution is a tiresome and lengthy process, taking up to several days, as Excel does not allow to combine and compare shelf and product dimensions at the same time;
  • Store employee turnover is high. New employees can not make right decisions on visual merchandising, they do not understand the principles, guides and rules of attractive goods display;
  • Store employees are not acquainted with the basics of merchandising. Suffering from incompetence and stress, they are not able to place goods in a proper and attractive way and they can not assess the results of their work;
  • The process of store performance assessment is very inefficient and complicated. First, store manager shall request an up-to-date planogram from the merchandiser, then store manager has to print out the Excel spreadsheet containing product numbers and names, and finally, store managers has to spend long hours manually comparing the factual goods display with Excel spreadsheets and planograms;
