Store Specific Standalone Planograms with a Lifecycle

By using Store Specific Standalone Planograms with a Lifecycle, you can publish planograms to the web without the need for drawn floor plans.

The fact that there can be standalone planograms that are store specific means that you can set which stores should share the standalone planogram. You can assign stores to a planogram in the Planogram tab.

Setting up stores


If you have already prepared a planogram and you want it to be displayed on the web interface, you need to publish it in the Lifecycle tab.

Quant offers four life cycle states:

  • Draft - a planogram, which is not yet ready and therefore not accessible via Quant web
  • Prepared - a planogram that does not yet need to be implemented
  • Waiting - a planogram that is up-to-date and must be implemented by the store by a certain date
  • Implemented - a planogram that was implemented at the store and the store confirmed its implementation

Planograms are usually published to the Waiting state. This state means that the planogram is ready for implementation and the store staff has to issue products according to it by a certain date (implementation date).

How do you publish the planograms to the web interface for stores?

  1. In the Published planograms table, mark the planogram you want to publish. There is one row for each store in the table. In the case of a section, also for each segment.
  2. Use the buttons above the table to select the desired action - Publish As Waiting.

Quant - interface for stores

Published planograms are displayed in the Planograms section of the website. Click on the detail of the selected planogram to see all relevant information and a preview. In the preview, the planogram is compared to a previously implemented planogram and the store has an overview of which products need to be added, moved or removed.

Planogram optimization

If you want to have a specific planogram for each store according to the sales and availability of that store, you can use one of the most advanced features of Quant, which is planogram optimization. You can set this feature in the Template tab. For it to work, it is important to set the sales data correctly. If you want Quant to follow the store sales data, you need to check the Use store data if available box.

Optimization and sales data settingsIn the Stores tab, you can compare the resulting product placement in the template based on the sales data of the selected store.

Only products with a Optional priority level may be crossed due to low sales. You can read more about how priority levels work in the Setting of Priority Levels manual.
