Shelf Management/ProSpace

About

ProSpace" software training has been offered at NWACC since 2002 to teach Walmart suppliers to become more efficient during the modular review process.

The program utilizes the latest version of JDA Intactix to teach students how to use "ProSpace" accompanied with specialized classes that teach students about Walmart's modular review process. Walmart uses JDA Intactix to create and review their category modular.

"ProSpace" training has evolved into Shelf Management and Space Planning. Students will be trained to identify the right assortment for a store to better ensure that the customers are able to buy what they want, when they want it. Doing so helps both Walmart and CPG (consumer packaged goods) companies increase sales and market share growth: by quickly analyzing how much can be sold and the amount of inventory needed to achieve those sales

Both Shelf Management and Space Planning are advanced Retail Classes.  These classes are offered to experienced retail individuals who want to learn the Walmart modular process and how to improve inventory efficiencies utilizing ProSpace Intactix.  The Shelf Management and Space Planning Program is a AR Workforce Approved Program.
