INTRODUCING GPS FOR TPM
CPGToolBox Trade Planner is the first and only TPM solution featuring GPS for TPM: a next generation onboarding tool, change management aid and proactive on-screen tutor to accelerate user adoption. The debut functionality is designed to direct users through each step of building, managing and settling a promotion using a series of pop-up balloons and call to action buttons — without the need to change screens.
GPS for TPM is specific to each user’s role to improve the user experience, increase knowledge retention and maximize productivity within the CPGToolBox Trade Planner solution. That means less support requests and faster training times! Watch the video to see it in action!
