Can I manage sales data with PlanogramBuilder (Business / analysis) ?

PlanogramBuilder lets you import sales figures to help you check for profitability and filter the assortment based on past sales (not available in Light version). Please see the user guide under https://www.planogrambuilder.com/downloads/webhelp/?topic=Profitability Study and https://www.planogrambuilder.com/downloads/webhelp/?topic=Assortment Analysis for details.

The "products" look to be 3D. How is that achieved? What does the user need to do to get their product into the program to make it 3D ?

PlanogramBuilder provides an automated system to generate 3D products based on the dimensions, a front image and choices of standard 3D shape templates (not available in Light version).
This system works for many standard packaging shapes as detailed here: https://www.planogrambuilder.com/downloads/webhelp/?topic=Available 3D Shapes for Items.

For products that have non-standard shapes, our company provides a service to integrate custom 3D shapes as a paying service.
Each 3D shape can be re-used to generate any number of similarly shaped products, but applying a different picture and dimensions.
Cost is typically between USD 10 and USD 50 per shape depending on complexity. We can also re-use 3D models if you have them available.

If you need custom items in 3D, please send us pictures and information about these, so we can:
  • perform an initial free test with one or two products.
  • provide a quote for your other products.
