Trade Funds Management Account Planner
Field sales is provided as a baseline sales volume for building a total sales, trade spending, and promotional plan customized for each account. Promotion simulation is accomplished through the use of syndicated lift factors. This data can be supplemented with optional sophisticated price and promotion analysis to build a powerful lift factor model based on retail conditions and pricing, which significantly enhances promotion simulation accuracy. Plan templates are customized to your product and customer hierarchies allowing plans to be developed at any desired level.
Completed plans can be aggregated at any desired level (by region, division, total, etc.) to give management an overview of planned sales volume, product mix promotional activities, and trade spending. Plans can be updated during the plan year through ongoing use of the template, which is automatically updated with actual results for completed periods. It also contains editable plan data for the balance of the year.
