Optimizing the store’s layout

Optimizing the store’s layout

The Xpandretail Insight Analytic tool will help revealing the path the clients take when entering the store. Are the clients hitting a blocking zone where they stop moving farther inside the store? Does the layout make sure that the clients are driven to visit most of the displays? is the cash counter positioned in the right place?
Through Xpandretail Analytics retailers understand how product placement drives sales, what the value of an end-cap/feature is, and how shelf placement matters. With consumer journey data, retailers can implement a proper funnel analysis – not just at the store level (PoS/Door Counting) but at a detailed level within the store.

What are the highest traffic generating products? Are they selling as much as they should? What is the effect of the products position on the store’s dynamics? Should the store carry more of ladies, men or kid’s products? What’s the age group of the store’s visitors? All that information form a gold mine of data, that can have a dramatic role on improving the store’s overall performance.

Merchandising effectiveness is important in recognizing the customer’s responsiveness to a product or display. Specific data allows retailers to optimize displays, resulting in better sales and profit performance. Xpandretail provides measurable data points with clear visibility into the full path of purchase, starting from the outside store environment with the windows through the journey inside the store, including departments, aisles, displays, and fixtures.

Promotion Impact

Promotion Impact

The retailer is now able to compare the traffic flow before and after promotion. If a specific area of the store is dedicated for products on promotion, it’s now possible to measure the level of activity of those areas, before and after the promotion took place.
Retailers are relying more on big data from various sources to deliver targeted promotional content. In a sense, big data is at the core of data driven promotional activities. With Xpandretail Analytics departments can identify the impact of increased emphasis on data driven promotion in higher conversions, customer acquisitions and retentions and delivering customized and targeted promotional content.

Product Displacement

Hot Or Cold Products

If the retailers notice a high dwell time or a hot zone next to a specific product, but the product is not selling, the retailer must check whether his products are overpriced. This could be a strong reason behind non moving products. Recognize how in-store staffing behavior, campaigns and promotions which guide the shopper journey.
Xpandretail technologies enable retailers to measure traffic and conversion rates for individual departments and entire stores. Such insights lead to better-informed and complementary product placements and, in theory, more sales sparked by cross-merchandising. It can also spark ways to ensure that shoppers linger and spend more.

Benchmark your business by Integrating the data with in-store POS feeds to deliver key performance metrics, such as conversion rates — across all store locations, in real-time. Easily spot norms, trends and outliers.
Retailers every single day receive long-range weather forecasts to work 8-10 days ahead. Evidently, the weather affects the shopping behavior of customers. For example, hot and cold weather can lead to the sales of certain products. It may appear that weather forecasting dictates store placement, ordering and supply (and demand) logistics for supermarket chains. Other retailers also use big data to tailor product selections and determine the timing of price markdowns.
Improve operations management and use the insights gained from Xpandretail analytics to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and limit the threat of fraud



Xpandretail’s Analytical report provides enter-to-exit patterns of customers within a business to understand key performance indicators of successful zones in allocated zones within the store and optimizing their path to purchase. Knowing where customers move is extremely useful for retailers. It allows them to optimize their store layout and strategize about where to place popular vs. unpopular and expensive vs. cheap merchandise. The data can also help identify pricing problems. For example, if lots of people are touching an item but few are buying it, that suggests the merchandise is too expensive.
