Cover: LEAFIO Shelf Efficiency update: new deep analytics module for planogram efficiency

The LEAFIO Shelf Efficiency team has launched a new in-depth performance analytics module for planograms created in the system.

The release introduces eight reports which were not previously available in the solution. Implementation for each of them is based on the needs and experience of existing retail clients already working in the system.

Regular analysis of the presented reports data will give you a clear idea of the planogram manager's effectiveness in your company, as well as how the layout affects the economic performance of the retail chain.

LFL (Like for Like) report

This report will be useful for Category Managers, Planogram Managers and C-Level Representatives.

This report should be referred to when you need to analyze the dynamics of key indicators on sales, display efficiency and inventory.

Within the report, you can analyze information by store, planogram, region, vendor and brand.

During the analysis, you'll track the positive or negative dynamics of the performance indicators and determine the elements influencing these changes (store/planogram/product).

The report is available as an infographic and in table format.

The Returns Ratio report

This report will be useful for representatives of the sales department and C-Level.

Use this report to understand how "healthy" the layout is and whether you should reduce/increase it on the category or product group level based on sales figures.

Also, when working with retail space, the report helps you draw conclusions by category: check and assess which category is working best, identify which category is exhibited wider than needed, and whether it's worth shortening the display by giving more space to another category.

This can be done by comparing the return rate at different levels of display management within the report: product groups, suppliers, brands, etc.

Planogram Efficiency Calculation report

This report will be useful for merchandisers, category managers, or merchandising department management.

You should refer to this report to estimate the economic effect of the changes implemented in the planograms. This way you can experiment with planograms and understand how it affects sales.

You can also use this report to cluster stores by specific categories.

How it works:

You can compare 2 similar stores, 1 of which has a planogram with the changes implemented. After a certain period of time and getting the sales results, the report provides information on how sales figures have changed in the modified planogram.

The peculiarity of this report is that the results don’t factor in seasonal sales fluctuations.

To learn more about the new module of deep analytics, you can leave a request for a demo presentation. Our managers are happy to answer all your questions and help with the existing merchandising process audit in your company.
