The right promotion,
in the right place,

Before each agreement, detailed analyses can be carried out in order to select only what has really benefited the company. Then, each trade promotion activity can be programmed in order to maximise sales and investment returns.

Just one place
to manage each stage of
the promotion

All the offices involved have access to a single management platform. Each agreement is managed, at each stage, through a standardised and traceable workflow with every internal and external representative.

Automated calculations
and rules to manage
agreements

The platform manages the allocation of contractual clauses on the different active channels in the system, in a simple and fast manner. It calculates accrued sums and the settlement proposals of each agreement automatically and without any constraints as regards complexity.

Full visibility on the actual and
forecast progress of each
promotion

Detailed analyses (by business entity, segment, product, etc.) can be carried out at any time to monitor the progress of each promotional activity. The software can be also used to generate useful estimates for correct allocation of resources in the coming months.
