CADS helps Henderson Group transform retail space planning with StoreSpace®

Henderson Group reached out to CADS following a recommendation from Nielsen, which provides Spaceman planogram technology that partners with StoreSpace®. They sought CADS’ expertise in streamlining and enhancing their store layout process.

Within 13 weeks, StoreSpace® was providing Henderson Group with category space changes, based on robust analysis, which could be tested and demonstrated.

“Our StoreSpace® software makes it easier for retailers to optimise their retail space. With StoreSpace®, Henderson Group has been able to make better informed planning decisions which help boost sales.”

Richard Burford, CADS’ Customer Success Specialist.

StoreSpace® is implemented in 101 of Henderson Group’s 105 stores. It provides the retailer and wholesaler with the platform and data they need to plan and analyse their retail space. They can also identify areas for improvement, such as categories with too much or too little space.

Since its implementation, StoreSpace® has helped Henderson Group efficiently make changes to store layouts, as well as access performance insights which enable them to better understand which actions have improved sales and profitability.

“StoreSpace® is a great tool for Henderson Group and for convenience retail chains. Its value is in quicker, faster and better decision making. It is influencing what is happening in store – and we can see which categories we need to flex to optimise sales.”

Terence O’Hagan, Retail Category Development Manager at Henderson Group.
