Trade Promotions Management

Get maximum ROI from your Trade Promotions with past data analysis, uplift algorithm, live in-flight promotions management, post-event evaluation and more.

We understand your challenges

  • Continual promotional peaks

    You’re having trouble bringing your marketing and sales teams together with production, to reduce stock-outs and maximise sales during promotions.

  • It’s difficult to predict the promotional uplift

    There are so many factors to consider such as mechanics, fixtures, redemption rates, and time of year and they can all be different for different customers.

  • Consolidating financials into one place is hard and time-consuming

    Cost, pricing and trade spend information need to be brought together at both a detailed and total event level before the predicted profit and retailer profit can be calculated.

  • Approval processes require a lot of work and information

    Each function (sales, supply chain and finance) needs to see all of the detail of what they are approving, and poor information can create approval delays which knock on to production and delivery.

  • Circumstances change quickly during promotions

    Retailer EPOS can show significant variations between actual events and plans that require an instant response to prevent shortages or over stocks.

  • Post-event financial analysis is cumbersome

    All of the financial data that was used to build the event and get it signed off has to be compared with the actuals to truly assess the success or failure of the event. This results in time-consuming analysis.

Trusted by our clients

“Greencore is involved in multiple categories, supplying a diverse range of products with different characteristics that require very different manufacturing processes. We selected sofco as they have an End-to-End planning and execution system that can be configured easily to fit these disparate demands. Our approach is much more sophisticated and collaborative now.”

Chris Chestney

IT Business Partner, Greencore

“What impressed us most about the sofco people was they understood our business, listened, and would bring a lot of experience to the project. They brought solid solutions to the issues we presented them with. It was clear from the outset that we were going to be able to work well together as a team and deliver this project. That is exactly what has happened.”
