Husqvarna has a long history that is rich in tradition. The first Husqvarna plant was established in 1689 as a weapons foundry. In the course of the centuries, Husqvarna has produced a large range of different products, including sewing machines, bicycles, motorcycles and kitchen equipment. They strive to not only deliver premium products but also a premium experience for their customers.
This is where KOM comes into play. They help Husqvarna to develop Visual Merchandising strategies, educating staff and executing different concepts. The challenge for Husqvarna is to maintain the look and feel of their resellers and stores on national and international levels. Therefore, a clear toolkit and easy-to-follow guidelines are needed, in order to deliver a consistent brand image and customer experience.
KOM provides Husqvarna with concept development for their shop fittings and communication, campaign exposures, planograms and training in Visual Merchandising to be able to constantly maintain a premium feeling.
The introduction of Visual Retailing's technology MockShop facilitates the processes when it comes to both, partner programs and new markets. With the easy planogram creation Husqvarna is able to maintain a consistent communication throughout different markets and stores.
"Especially when we are entering new markets where people are not so familiar with our brand Husqvarna, it is essential to offer clear and visual descriptions of how our range will look in-store. With MockShop we can provide a ready-made process based on visual planograms for the prospective retail partner" says Sebastian Langenheim, Global Store Manager.
"The efficiency level of MockShop is incredibly high and positively contributes to their retail efforts", Sebastian continues. "We only have to describe and build our retail exposure once and can reuse the idea of the concept at all levels multiple times and generate instant images of product disclosure and planograms tailored to each retailer.
