1…Trade spending represents 15-25% of your budget!

2…You invoice retailers, and only receive payment of about 40%, and have little to no idea what the difference is.

3…Your spreadsheets are not accurately managing the complexity of managing trade promotions.

4…Reconciliation of MCBs/deductions is overwhelming & time consuming.

5…You have limited reporting, and lack a graphical calendar view of your promotions.

6…Your internal team & broker partners are not working with the same info & you could leverage the broker partnership better.

7…A TPM System seems too costly, so you feel it’s too early for you.

8…You feel a TPM System may be complex, and you do not have internal staff to handle a system.

9…You are relatively new to the CPG industry & could use experience & resources.

10…You’ve heard it takes months to set up a system, and the return on your investment would not be soon enough.

May we show you an example of how we have helped our client-partners address these challenges?

You Can Have Better Visibility Into Your Trade Spending in Just 1 Week!

Gain better visibility into trade spending with Adesso

What % of Your Budget is Trade Spending?

To know where your dollars are spent and to make them work harder,
here are 5 reasons to consider Adesso’s Flamingo TPM:

The new fees from Whole Foods will be another area of change – and increased spending.

The upcharge from distributors is not always known to you in advance, so your retail price isn’t what you thought it was set to be.

You’re unable to see exactly where your promotion dollars are being spent.

Deduction/MCB management is an accounting nightmare, and it is a challenge to hire someone who has the expertise.

You and your CFO are constantly wondering what you’ve spent at retailers through distributors, and would like accountability.

If you’re on QuickBooks, you’ll be up, running – and generating results – within a week, and it grows as you do.

And do not worry about complexity – it is simpler than spreadsheets for your team, and brokers love it, too!
