Reset Analyzer quickly calculates the labor hours, costs, and ROI of
proposed category changes.

Last year, the U.S. Grocery industry spent nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars on labor to reset shelves, remodel stores, and to cut-in new items. In other words, each store spends $20,000 — $50,000 in annual shelf-execution labor. Yet the anticipated gains for most re-merchandising activities are seldom realized.

Reset Analyzer helps operators understand the true costs of each re-merchandising activity to improve decision making in the areas of:

Planning and Scheduling
Reset Analyzer determines labor requirements in advance so companies can understand the project’s impact on budgeted labor hours.

Reset Analyzer connects operations to the merchandising process, which enables category managers to quantify the true costs of each proposed reset prior to scheduling and execution.

Resource Optimization
Perhaps most importantly, Reset Analyzer allows companies to prioritize workflows based on return-on-investment.

Reset Analyzer, using activity-based costing methodology, identifies the costs to execute shelf changes using 55 labor and cost inputs across the following three areas:

HQ Planning & Scheduling
From planning and schematic development to assembling the reset packages.

In-Store Execution
From drive time to reviewing store changes.

HQ Follow-Up
From reviewing store recap sheets to centralizing the equipment and fixtures.
