Software for central store management

Software for central store management: The collaborative business platform improves cooperation - between head office and store as well as between the category management, store planning, purchasing and sales departments. External service providers such as store planners can be integrated as required. Manufacturers of furnishing systems can even contribute their own catalogs.

Central optimization of store concepts

Software for central store management: The P'X Retail Solution provides retail centers with a business platform that maps all stores in virtual reality. Spatial evaluations of all stores provide precise basic data for determining the total merchandise requirements so that the purchasing department can procure the exact ideal quantities.

Central management

Category management simply changes the assortment and merchandise supports in the 3D environment. Planograms and assembly instructions are automatically generated for each store.
Centrally coordinated changes to the product and experience worlds are implemented effectively and in short periods of time with the P'X Retail Solution.

Local realization

Overall views as well as individual planograms per gondola/shelf running meter are automatically generated as PDF documents. This provides assembly and sales staff with easy-to-understand documents with visual instructions on how to load merchandise supports with goods.
Alternatively, shopfitters, store managers or merchandisers access the 3D plans in Store Communicator via mobile devices on site. They exchange plans and photos from coordinate quickly and efficiently with other areas.

Synchronous, digital processes

In this way, planning and procurement processes are improved synchronously with store design and merchandise presentation.

Integration with enterprise resource planning

The planning data from the central store management software can be linked to the operational merchandise management data in the ERP. Strategies, store design and operational implementation are continuously refined on the basis of this "real-time data".

The foundation: Intelligent catalogs

At the heart of the cooperation is the exchange of catalogs, which can be increasingly enriched. Suppliers and shopfitting system manufacturers contribute individual parts and assembly catalogs that reflect the country-specific, partner-specific or customer-specific requirements of their own product range.

Individual concept catalogs

Store planners or architects compile the modules of the store design concept from the elements of the various catalogs. Missing product elements or individual designs are specified with parameterizable elements. Special designs from the CAD system can also be imported via drag & drop, provided with item information and placed.

Virtual interior planning

Retailers use the shopfitting concept catalog for planning furnishings on the basis of a scanned floor plan. If required, assortment, merchandise display and planogram catalogs can be used to lay out the merchandise presentation in detail.

Abstract or detailed product presentation

Collections and assortments are represented in concept catalogs either by abstract 3D placeholders for product groups or in detail as individual articles. Products, decorative elements and posters, can be quickly created with images and photos of packaging and used in planning via drag & drop.

Automatic application to stores

Assortment catalogs are created together with the merchandise displays so that planning units are created from the planogram and merchandise display layout. If category management changes the planograms, the P'X Retail Solution (software for central store management) can automatically transfer the integrated product carrier layout and merchandise arrangement to the stores. There, existing merchandise displays and stock levels are adapted without any manual routine work.

Central where-used lists

The P'X Retail Solution manages all the where-used lists for the scheduled modules across all stores. In the case of assortment adjustments, the placement and position of brackets or hooks are tracked for each module version. The changes can be tracked per store, individually accepted, rejected or modified.

Software for visual merchandising

Visual merchandising software: P'X Retail Solution (software for central store management) can be used to quickly design different variants of visual merchandising concepts with an optimal design of the display areas.
An intuitively understandable 3D representation improves the communication and coordination processes of all parties involved. This significantly reduces the planning phase and lead times for image adaptations.

Fast, worldwide realization

If an enterprise resource planning system is connected with the articles used, article numbers and article photos do not have to be entered again. This simplifies orders and reduces errors.
Centrally created visual specifications can be saved as projects and passed on to country subsidiaries for specific adaptation.
