Simplifying Chain Store Complexities
With hefty square footage per location and a SKU count to match, the #1 office supply superstore in the US has its fair share of complexity to manage.
GFX Symphony® allowed the chain to consolidate existing store profile data from a variety of spreadsheets into a single repository. This consolidation validated data integrity which made it easy for the visual team to identify location commonalities & differences throughout the chain.
Leading Office Supply Superstore In The US Saves Over $750,000 Annually With GFX Symphony®
With all of the superstore’s visual assets uploaded into GFX Symphony®, everything the chain used to communicate with their shoppers was archived in one place. And the ability to run a “smart spin” was born. “Smart Spin” allowed the visual team to begin cross-referencing graphic part types against site-specific profile data. Because of this, scenario planning, risk mitigation, and decision making were all improved.
