With site|folio, team members always know which are the latest designs, layouts and product placements for each and every store. Our solution is perfect for sales forces, multi-location operations, and remote team members. No longer wait for overnight shipments or, worse, do ‘planograms’ in the field. With 24/7 access to your designs, retail design and store planning is fast and efficient.
Your World? Design/Store Planning is about aesthetics, balancing competing interests, version control and visibility. All are critical to determining, knowing and governing what is on every floor or shelf in every store and, ultimately, to a satisfying customer experience.
Keep everyone current on the design.
Staying current is challenge one. A single store plan might change weekly as merchants release new products or marketers change strategies. site|folio provides a centralized repository of all current and historical store plans product photos, and product databases – for all locations.
- Stay informed of status changes with instantaneous email notification when a document is viewed, uploaded, marked up or approved. Likewise, automatically alert both internal and remote parties when designs, collateral or product databases are updated.
- Allow multiple contributors to repeatedly mark up drawings or documents within site|folio using our integrated document viewer – saving you the expense of additional software or from making notes on hard copies.
- Model your document repository on the structure of your business, so finding design materials is easy and intuitive. Use site|folio’s extensive search functionality to find a collection of plans, photos or documents across multiple locations.
- Control access to your documents and data on multiple axes, such that internal stakeholders and outside parties only view or edit information relevant to them. And, automatically audit who did what, when.
- Access, view and download the latest materials (in report-form, if need be) from virtually anywhere. Store and district managers, for example, can view and print all pertinent files from their own computers – without having to purchase and install proprietary software.
- Retain every version of each document, with its author, save date/time and optional change notes tracked by site|folio. Roll back when needed, or compare versions side-by-side.
Strategically manage and distribute your design.
The strategic management and distribution of an ideal prototype store plan presents another challenge. Best practice is starting each new store design or remodel from the ideal. site|folio indentifies which is the latest prototype and electronically disseminates it to all relevant, responsible parties upon request. Or, allow team members to retrieve the existing store plan that most closely matches the parameters of your newest project.
