XPace planograms are three-dimensional. Articles, shelves and shops can be viewed from all sides. With a normal mouse and keyboard you can move around in an XPace planogram and view and edit the shelf and all articles in perspective. With a 6-axis mouse you have a 3D controller for the planogram, with which you have the shelf virtually in your hand.
XPace planogramming includes any relevant and common rack components, fixtures, and displays. XPace planograms cover racks and rack segments, displays, palette placements and any kind of shop or point-of-sale. Furthermore, the XPace fixture library accepts the installation of customized fixtures and displays.
Due to its fixture library, XPace creates planograms from highly realistic uprights, base panels, shelves, baskets, pegboards, and hooks. In addition, palettes, cardboard boxes, cut-cases, environmental elements such as walls, backgrounds, and floor elements are ready to be used in point-of-sale design.
XPace makes it easy for you to fill shelves with articles: Drag individual articles or entire article groups onto a carrier – the articles are immediately placed on the carrier and automatically arranged correctly.
