Resetting shelves when a new planogram has dropped adds an overwhelming volume of work for employees when you factor in; the shelf cleaning, price placement, photography archiving, handling of discontinued SKUs and products, and all of the other peripheries that go with re-organizing your store shelves.
“A haircare department that wraps the aisle can be up to 120 square feet with copious numbers of SKUs and products to reset. Our MCA team flawlessly executes this planogram in one day.”
Many retailers simply don’t have the bandwidth to reset their own planograms within the allotted time constraints.

Not to mention the hit to the bottom line.
