Visual assortment planning with vrLineplan

By: Visual Retailing  09-12-2011

Using vrLineplan the designers, buyers and merchandisers can visualise the range throughout the range planning process. The easy-to-use software provides the design, buying and merchandising teams with an on-line sample room, where images and product information are stored and managed, including scanned sketches and photographs, or directly imported CAD drawings or digital images.

vrSampleroom stores and organises the product pictures and data for fast and easy retrieval, so that any member of the team can 'see' what is being discussed without needing access to the sample, the Foamex storyboard or sketch. In addition browsing tools allow the buying team to organise vrSampleroom in a myriad of different ways; by price point, by status, by product hierarchy, by colour, and more conventional data access is available via spreadsheets that cater for quickly reviewing lots of product records simultaneously and for rapid updating of multiple records.

vrStoryboard provides the ability to visualise how items co-ordinate together, allowing buyers and merchandisers to quickly place merchandise on the screen as if they were looking at actual garments on a gridded wall panel. Integrated with the on-line sample room the vrStoryboards automatically update themselves when product images or attributes change, so that the whole team can immediately see how the developing range looks without needing to search out samples, sketches or swatches.
