One Stop has announced it has gone live with a new digital merchandising platform to enable retailers to get advice on how to optimise categories.

Galleria’s next generation merchandising platform will be available to all One Stop retailers at all 900 stores across the UK, with advice on macro space optimisation, along with planograms and workflow management support.

Galleria, part of Relex Solutions, will provide category optimisation solutions with advanced planning, automation and optimisation levels to support clients in their customer centric journey.

Mervin Nugent, senior range planning, One Stop, said: “With rapid expansion, it’s important for us to continuously remain close to our customers by understanding their needs. Galleria supports One Stop in achieving a tailored approach to range and space, better supporting stores and empowering our franchise partners with information to make better informed decisions.”

Ian Duncan-Lewis, CEO, Galleria, said: “Localisation lies at the heart of One Stop’s strategy and Galleria’s solutions alike. We’re proud of our continued partnership as One Stop leverage this fantastic opportunity to adopt the latest in merchandising technology to keep a step ahead and provide the very best advice to stores and franchise partners.”

One Stop’s next step will be to widen the end-to-end category management capability with the introduction of new solutions during 2016. A key element of this will be Galleria’s cloud planogramming solution available via mobile device, which will provide franchise partners with the ability to amend assortment and space locally within each store, with category strategy set at head office to guide financially sound decision making.
