Updating, viewing & reporting store layouts and commodities
Well already had AutoCAD drawings for each pharmacy site, so the next step was for Well staff to complete audit surveys to verify the layout of each store and the location of the commodities on the shelves. Using the StoreSpace® floor planning system, CADS collaborated with the Well team to update 780 AutoCAD store plans from the data and surveys provided.
By updating the store plans using the StoreSpace® AutoCAD add-in the layout and commodity information was available online via StoreSpace for viewing and reporting. It provided an efficient and cost-effective solution for the pharmacy chain.
Range and assortment planning for 780 stores based on highly accurate data
Using StoreSpace®, CADS was able to create a highly accurate dataset for Well Pharmacy. Floor plans of every location together with range and assortment information is available for their Head Office, store and field-based personnel.
Model stores were created to be used within the system allowing each store to be reviewed against the model, with coloured highlighting and targets helping to guide the planner to the right mix of space.
Well Pharmacy joins several other leading retailers who are also using StoreSpace® to plan their stores.
Commercial Project Manager
With StoreSpace® we can now produce reports that provide us with linear, category and equipment detail at store, cluster or whole estate levels in seconds. This information was previously difficult or costly to obtain and is valuable to our business in helping us identify the stores that match set criteria for range and assortment improvements and for other Well colleagues such as our buyers and category managers.
