FIXTURE COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT

Streamline the fixture set and reset process to achieve savings

Cosmetics departments and other categories with specialized fixture needs require more care and attention than most areas of the store. Keeping up with seasonal product resets and cut-ins or maintaining a professional image by having easy access to ordering replacement parts is critical to this part of your business. Cut-ins and seasonal resets may require fixture updates in addition to new products, and some brands have complete overhauls on a regular basis.

Managing fixture resets and reorder accessibility consists of many moving pieces and parties, including the brands, the fixture manufacturer, the retailer’s teams at the corporate office, and individual stores. Our experienced staff excels in project management and can coordinate all of these stakeholders to improve efficiencies throughout the process and ensure a successful multiple-location replacement and/or installation.

FIXTURE AND CUSTOM COSMETIC PLANOGRAMS

We can create and manage a library of fixture images and specifications so we can build an accurate fixture planogram and easily include the cosmetics that are used within them.

EXPERT SPACE PLANNING

We audit in-store layouts and existing fixtures and then analyze space planning files to validate future fit.

PLANOGRAM BOOKLETS

These helpful tools can include fixture planograms with products, a line listing, product pictures, and the required fixture pieces specific to the various retailers that carry the brand.

FIXTURE FULFILLMENT

Our efficient kitting process reduces waste, and for large rollouts or resets, it can reduce in-store set-up time by up to 40%. We’ve created tools and processes that improve the efficiency of fixture implementation from pallet assembly of the pieces and product, to the in-store execution. We developed column packing logic to organize the boxes placed on the pallet in the opposite order that they will be needed, so what is needed first, is the first available. For stores that have limited backroom or aisle space, column packing allows store personnel to bring just the number of boxes needed to set a small section at a time.

INSTALLATION GUIDES AND VIDEOS

Being able to open the boxes in the order you need to build the fixtures aids the efficiency of implementation, as do our instruction guides and videos that correlate with the fixture planogram, and details through pictures and text, how to build the unit when there are complex or new parts being added. By following the step-by-step directions for unpacking and assembling displays in the instruction guides and/or video, breakage and re-order costs can be significantly reduced. The visual explanations can also minimize language barriers.

CUSTOM REORDER WEBSITES

If there is breakage or the need to reorder parts, our custom-built websites offer an online central location where stores can see fixture images to make it easy to find the correct piece. Stores will only see the information specific to their location based on their subscription to minimize mistakes and confusion. Retailers will also appreciate cost management features and the shipment tracking which will help labor scheduling.

Our detail-oriented team is proficient at handling the complexity of fixture resets leading to financial and productivity savings, as well as store-level labor savings and improvements in installation accuracy.
