Retail Planograms

Planograms are diagrams that show where products or merchandise should be placed on a shelf or other sort of display.

The idea is to maximize the amount of merchandise on the shelf and the amount of sales by arranging in such a way that makes it appealing to the consumer while minimizing wasted space.

Planograms differ significantly by retail sector.

Fast-moving consumer goods organizations and supermarkets largely use text and box based planograms that optimize shelf space, inventory turns, and profit margins.

Apparel brands and retailers are more focused on presentation and use pictorial planograms that illustrate “the look” and also identify each product.

DMSRetail Space Planner Planogram Software handles all requirements effectively.

Often retailers use planograms to decide how best to get as much on their shelves as possible or increase sales.

Even more often, however, the suppliers will send a planogram before sending their product as a suggestion to help in displaying their goods so they can be easily seen and will be placed alongside like objects.
