Merchandising insights for a customer-centric shopping experience

Get insights on shopper traffic patterns by zone in order to increase visits to categories, reduce category bounce rates and generate more traffic to high margin, low visit count departments.

SMI’s Retail Merchandising delivers optimized assortment planning, range localization and product visibility, resulting in a shopper journey based store layout with improved shopping metrics and return on every square meter of shopping area.

How Merchandising Insights Work

Upload floor plans to your portal to create a store map. Use drawing tools to draw merchandise zones. X/Y coordinates and areas sizes are automatically set up to locate shoppers in each zone.
Analyze the health of your merchandise areas on over 40 metrics. Interactive dashboards with what-if queries allows you to drill down into over and under performing zones for each store.
‘Push-intelligence’ detects changes in the health of your zones and triggers alerts to personnel. Operations teams are empowered to improve the customer experience and profitability of stores.
