Drive Profitable Promotions

Ask any VP of Sales their biggest business challenge and promotion effectiveness is usually at the top of the list. CPGToolBox Trade Planner will enable your Sales team to concentrate on selling profitable promotions instead of wasting time manipulating data in static spreadsheets. According to Gartner, there is a definite momentum and preference for cloud-based trade promotion solutions and there is no reason to continue with spreadsheets. Here’s how spreadsheets are falling short:

Q

No reports or dashboards to see performance of every promotion

Q

No approval process to ensure deductions don’t slip through the cracks

Q

No real-time data to utilize with customers

of CPG companies still use spreadsheets to manage trade spend.
