The company, which has 980 stores in the UK, Ireland, Europe and Asia, is implementing space management software from supplier JDA to improve the way it plans and arranges products on its shelves, said Colin Cobain, IT director at Tesco.
"Effective daily management of our categories is critical," he said. "Because JDA provides the capability to create a multitude of store fixture types and to visualise space in 3D using real store and category images, we can increase productivity and perform deeper analysis of category performance. We are confident that JDA's space management solutions will help us to improve category profitability across the Tesco estate."
Tesco will implement the Intactix space planning and Portfolio Knowledge Base Planogramming Domain applications in its European operations in Poland and Hungary, before rolling them out to UK stores.
Tesco's Asia Pacific operations in Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Korea and China will then implement the software, Cobain said.
