Promotion Execution & Analysis

Marketers say, “Half the money spent on advertising is wasted; we just don’t know which half.” The same can be said for trade promotions.

Plan and execute promotions effectively with data-driven insights. Accurately measure performance and sales lift across all stores. Maximize trade promotion ROI.

How Much Do You Value Your Promotions?


According to McKinsey & Company, CPG companies invest up to 20% of their gross revenues on promotions—one of the largest items on the P&L.

But without timely, precise, store-level performance data, companies can’t capture the true value of their promotions, yet better plan future ones.

With clean, daily point-of-sale data, consumer brands can analyze actual promotion results across stores, chains, and regions and layer additional trade promotion information on top to gain valuable insights and determine the impact on shopper behavior and true ROI.
