[Free Ebook] Why You Should Consider Planogram Outsourcing

Planogram Outsourcing

There is no argument that a data-driven planogram is vital for your success as a retailer. After all, it is a fundamental space management tool. And with them, you can improve your shelf space efficiency and present your customers with logical and shopper-friendly product layouts. However, what happens if you don’t have category management capabilities to build them?

That’s simple: you outsource the creation of these planograms. Of course, that is not the only reason to outsource planograms. There are many other reasons, all of which we’ll unpack in this ebook.

As with our other recent ebooks such as our Responding to Changes in Consumer Demand, which deals with COVID-19, and the revamped Anatomy of a Performance-Enhancing Planogram, we have endeavoured to consult multiple internal experts when writing this piece of content.

The result is an ebook that combines some 15 years of category management expertise. On top of that, we shared this ebook across the business to gain further perspective from all levels of the business.

But what is this ebook all about? And what do we unpack?

Firstly, we’ve titled this ebook ‘When and Why You Should Outsource Planogram Generation’. Secondly, the main focus is planogram services, and by association, planogram outsourcing.

And in the pages, we kick off by explaining planogram services, followed by a few goals and popular objectives of using such services. One such objective is to create consistent category merchandising across all of your stores. We also unpack the short- and long-term benefits of outsourcing the creation of planograms.
