The chain now has 75 shopping malls, and the approximate number of SKUs on display is 1,000,000.
Epicenter K chose LEAFIO as a cloud solution for shelf space management, which can create planograms based on retrospective data and build effective merchandising management.
The main objectives of the implementation of LEAFIO Shelf Efficiency in Epicenter K are to:
- Build centralized layout management in the company
- Unify work with the assortment throughout the chain
- Create a seamless merchandising business process to manage it
“We adhere to the policy that the LEAFIO solution does not work without prior team training and further customer support in scaling.”
Jane Medwin, Co-Founder
Therefore, at the beginning of the partnership, the following project tasks were defined:
- Integration with the accounting system
- Preparation and collection of the data necessary for the planogram building, namely the dimensions of goods and equipment. This information is needed for the further creation of positional planograms
- Training of the team to work with the LEAFIO system. The Epicenter K team starts learning the system on a specially created platform where educational videos and other instructional materials are stored. Also, they attend a series of online classes with our specialists who share specific details and nuances that are specific to their field.
- Creation of the planograms for 2 retail outlets
The Epicenter K team is currently engaged in the process of acquiring proficiency with the system, with the ultimate aim of maximizing its potential and capabilities.
At LEAFIO AI, we are dedicated to continuing our work with Epicenter K and are excited about the challenges and successes that lie ahead. Our team remains committed to implementing innovative solutions that help Epicenter K achieve its goals and improve operations. As we move forward, we are constantly exploring new approaches and technologies that can further enhance the efficiency and sustainability of this cutting-edge facility.
