Terry Showalter, senior product manager for Hillman, says, “We are quite pleased to be using the state of the art in planogramming technology with our new Hardware Essentials Builder’s Hardware line. This new technology has several key features that we believe puts us leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.”

“Hillman Planogrammer” is a customized version of Northwoods’ breakthrough GoPlanogram(TM) software technology. Today Northwoods also announced the availability of customization of the technology for new customers.

GoPlanogram software allows ordinary computer users to design retail store displays using their internet browser, without the need to install software. Despite running in a browser, this new technology has rapid drag-and-drop performance because GoPlanogram is based on Microsoft’s Silverlight technology, which provides high interactivity for web-based solutions.

GoPlanogram’s web-based implementation means that planograms can now be easily shared amongst a company’s users worldwide, and reliably backed up. More importantly, centralizing the storage of a company’s planograms, when combined with store sales history, has the potential to provide a wealth of business intelligence for optimizing category management and inventory. Additional options possible for GoPlanogram customers are automated planogram construction, instant online ordering, photo enhancement, custom fixtures, and integration with IT systems.

Northwoods Software has been developing planogram software since 1999. Its easy to use planogramming technology is used by marketing managers, merchandisers, retail sales staff, and individual store owners. Prior to developing the GoPlanogram technology, Northwoods implemented custom planogramming software for National Manufacturing, The Stanley Works, and Hampton Products International Corporation.

GoPlanogram software offers dramatic increases in user productivity as well as providing high visual quality for the resulting displays.
