Software alone isn’t enough to optimize your promotions

According to Consumer Goods, 55% of the amount spent on trade promotions fail to grow the brand for both manufacturer and retailer.

And it’s increasingly difficult to pinpoint what’s going wrong. The retail environment grows ever more complex and the data management processes needed to interrogate them are time-consuming and error-prone.

So how do you differentiate between poorly performing promotions and profitable ones? The answer lies hidden in your data.
