Rethinking the center store – and beyond.

We know how much pressure CPG manufacturers face—pressure to stay on top of the latest product and industry trends, pressure to increase sales in your category, pressure to expand your customer base.

Virtual reality store simulations ease that pressure with retail and shopper intelligence.

 

With virtual you can:

  • Improve speed to market

  • Understand the impact your changes have on your sales and the bottom line
  • Determine the optimal layout and assortment for your key retailers and channels
  • Evaluate new in-store ideas, with no threat from the competition

We recreate your shopper experience in virtual reality, so you can build and modify planograms and shelf layouts quickly and easily, without the need for time-consuming mock physical stores. With insights like never before, we can help improve your category review process, and evaluate your in-store marketing, packaging or store design ideas before you invest in them. Virtual reality simulations give you the confidence you need to make category recommendations to retailers, with results that prove your idea will move the needle for your brand and the category—ultimately enriching the shopper experience.

We've partnered with the top consumer packaged goods manufacturers worldwide to help them better understand shopper behavior, create more successful in-store concepts and work more effectively with retailers.
