Centralize and Automate the Full-Cycle of Trade Promotion Management
Complete depletion allowance and trade spend management built for three-tier distribution to deliver unmatched control and visibility over your bottom line. It's not just transparent trade spending; it's complete Tradeparency.Watch Overview
With Tradeparency, you can validate that deals invoiced are real and rebates are accurate, check the effectiveness of your programs in real-time to adjust when needed, and set rules on distributor contracts and transactions. Enjoy:
- Clarity: Ensure consistent and accurate pricing throughout all sales regions and avoid surprise pricing on invoices.
- Accessibility: Obtain pricing, spending, incentives, price per case, and net margin in a single click.
- Visibility: Determine frontline and deal pricing by state, distributor, market, brand, and product.
Immediately eliminate costly, error-prone management of negotiated pricing through centralized data and accurate tracking of every dollar.
Save thousands in lost profits and never pay out unwarranted funds by removing inefficient, manual pricing reconciliations and processes. Other pricing and promotion tools base their depletion allowances and chargeback invoice reconciliation off of tracking assumed information from third-party depletion numbers, not the actual agreement or data. That only gets you 70% of the way there – that other 30% is money on the vine. With Tradeparency, you get:
- Validation: Verify that your price and promotions commitments agree with chargebacks and invoice adjustments.
- Control: Confirm the deals-invoiced are real. Check the effectiveness of your programs in real-time and adjust when needed.
- Coverage: 100% coverage on distributors, markets, and promotions, including all incentives and expenditures.
Tradeparency is the only solution that delivers complete and total control of all your promotions from TRUE data, not expected or presumed numbers that can’t be fully validated.
