Optimise your store layouts and improve performance with StoreSpace’s intuitive and integrated AutoCAD-based space planning platform

To create profitable store layouts you need to meticulously plan and understand the customer journey. By understanding this journey, it is possible to successfully position categories and products in store. The result ensures that selling space is optimised and customers are satisfied.

How Can StoreSpace® Help You Optimise Your Store Layouts & Performance?

This involves the assessment of many different data sources, and this is where StoreSpace® fits in. It has been developed in-house and based on a wealth of practical retail space planning experience. StoreSpace helps retailers productively plan their stores by accessing accurate space-related information.

Such information as how the selling space within your stores integrates with the building, as well as understanding the impact of equipment, customer flow and fixture placements. StoreSpace builds this intelligence directly into your existing AutoCAD block library. AND by avoiding the use of overlays and trace files StoreSpace ensures a single AutoCAD drawing reflects each store.

Whether you are designing new stores or remodelling existing ones, StoreSpace® retail space planning software enables you to:

  • maximise selling space and identify opportunities for improving your store layouts;
  • simplify and speed up the planning process;
  • use best performing stores as models to plan and adjust other stores;
  • plan your macro space & Nielsen planograms directly from your AutoCAD .dwg floor plans;
  • view, report and share all information held in your store plans;
