“In the spring of 2016, we first became acquainted with the Quant software. In addition to creating efficient floor plans and planograms, it also offered distribution and control over their implementation. A great benefit was the web application for internal communication with stores. The superstructure also featured the possibility of analysing Category Management, which we were preparing in the longer term horizon.”
Category & Merchandising Manager
In the first stage, we transferred all existing variations of the planogram to Quant, and we gradually digitized the shop floor plans. We launched Quant on a go live date in January 2017 in the form of a web application, and all of the 75 outlets used Quant (at least as a communication channel) by the end of 2017.
The main savings in work for merchandiser when creating planograms in Quant lies in the possibility of implementing them in the “branch-specific” mode. The merchandiser creates one planogram template where it places the entire product portfolio of that category, and Quant then calculates the number of products placed on the basis of the sales data of each particular store. This also has a positive effect on managing stockpiles.
