Collaborate and automate shelf space planning to meet customer expectations

The shelf is a dynamic environment. It’s where shoppers make both planned and impulse purchases, and where store associates stock shelves to satisfy in-store shoppers and pick products to support their online channel. But without the consistent execution of optimized planograms at the store level that meet customer demand and expectations, even the best category management strategy can underperform in actual execution. SymphonyAI’s shelf space optimization software for retailers and CPG manufacturers avoid these pitfalls.

Meet customer expectation at the shelf

With SymphonyAI shelf planning, you’ll generate store-specific shelf layouts that accurately reflect category strategy and customer needs, along with SKU adjacencies, adhere to physical constraints and automatically incorporate merchandising guidelines. This streamlined and connected approach is easily deployed and adopted by employees. Avoid siloed shelf planning that’s disconnected from upstream assortment decision making, mismatched space allocations, and inefficient use of employee time.

SymphonyAI Space Planning enables rapid and accurate planogram creation that maximizes space and efficiently executes demand-driven category and assortment management. All users, whether at headquarters or in the field, can easily collaborate on planogram changes in real time, via the cloud and on any device, any time – delivering the critical visibility the entire organization requires.
