NEW YORK—A new software tool, featuring 3D imaging and frame board layouts, enables ECPs to better plan and track their eyewear inventory and sales. Launched in late December by Eye Designs, a leader in the manufacturing of custom ophthalmic environments and optical display systems, the Merchandiser Pro is its new merchandising and plan-o-gram software.

Merchandiser Pro allows users to generate plan-o-grams like retailing professionals. Plan-o-grams are a diagram or model that indicates the placement of retail products on shelves in order to maximize sales. The user-friendly, cloud-based software in Merchandiser Pro is designed for optical sales, and is a one of a kind tool which can generate 3D merchandising models, featuring frame board layouts along with Eye Design’s most popular accessories including frame holders, shelving, signage and more.

The software allows the user to adjust frame board configurations to match the frame count of their particular display units. Merchandiser Pro keeps track of all accessories being added while the user interacts with software generating a real time image of the design. It can be used via computer, tablet or mobile phone and offers flexible choices.

“Store merchandising done right promotes product trial, brand recognition and quicker buying decisions,” Richard Winig, co-president of Eye Designs, said. “Having Merchandiser Pro gives clients the ability to create their own merchandising plans to help them organize their frame boards efficiently and effectively.”
