Software Helps Retailers Improve Floor Planning

01/19/2012
Aldata, a global provider of retail and distribution improvement software,  announced the availability of the Aldata Store Planning solution. The product was launched at the National Retail Federation’s 101st Annual Convention & Expo, held this week at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York.

Aldata’s Store Planning is a user-friendly, comprehensive database-driven floor planning and analysis software solution that dramatically improves the retail space planning process while avoiding the complexity of CAD-driven systems.

The solution can be integrated within a category management system to provide an organization with the information and tools necessary for analyzing store layouts and planning space usage at the macro level. This capability is important because it provides retailers with a clear picture of product and category performance within the aisles and departments of specific stores.

Aldata Store Planning also empowers companies to use 3D visualization features to align store layouts with category management initiatives and optimize their stores’ retail space by delivering the consistent, accurate execution of category plans and new product launches at any required granular level. Harbor Freight Tools, the national leader in selling high quality tools at “ridiculously low prices,” uses Aldata Store Planning for its stores which are located in 45 states across the United States.
 
“Large, innovative retailers understand the importance of maximizing every inch of shelf space in their retail stores,” said Brendan Lowe, president, Aldata North America. “Smart organizations understand the importance of supplying in-store customers with the exact product that is desired as lost sales are a major challenge of brick-and-mortar stores and have lasting ill effects on the brand.

Leveraging Aldata Category Optimization protects retailers from these negative effects and presents them with all of the space management and planning data they need to fulfill their customers’ needs.”
