Enterprise Retail Floor Planning Application / Sears


Every retail season, Sears, like all retailers, needs to update inventory and plan the layout of each physical store location. The challenge was that the existing systems and procedures were slow, difficult to use and took far too long – costing the company significantly through lost time.

Our Solution

After a comprehensive audit of the floor planning process, Lithyem engineered and architected a system that’s now used by every Sears retail store to quickly and effectively create seasonal floor plans that are free of errors and approved easily. Our visual floor planning tool allows stores to intuitively create plans, review business rule violations in real-time, and have plans approved through a simple but powerful hierarchical workflow. The seasonal floor planning process was reduced, on average, from 15 to 3 days for each store.

“We wanted to thank you and your team for helping to transform our floor planning process with the new Sears FloorPlanner. Team members across the country are raving about how great the tool is! Thank you again for all of your efforts! Great job.”
– Pete Magnabosco, Vice President / Sears
