Rules, templates and plans give users the ability to customise strategies for each category. Powerful integration makes space aware assortment planning that's driven by internal and external sales data possible.
Rules are individual calculations. In CatMan, there are many standard rules which are pre-built into the software. However, power users who are proficient in Microsoft SQL can add entirely new and customised rules.
Templates are used to group together a selection of rules which are linked to one particular product category, subcategory or segment. Each product grouping is different in nature, therefore, each product grouping is likely to benefit from a different set of rules.
One plan is usually applied to one entire category. A plan, which is designed in this way, is made up of a customizable selection of templates with each template being linked to one specific grouping of products within a category.
DotActiv has allowed Pick n Pay to deliver more as a team. Their planogram deliverables and support relationships have also always been a top priority, which allows us to have full confidence in them and their abilities.
The implementation of data-driven planograms using DotActiv software has been a stepping stone for Food Lovers Market's growth within the Groceries division. We also implemented automated ordering, which wouldn't have been possible without DotActiv’s help.
