Volume Planning & TPM Value Stream

For over 30 years, CPG companies have been attempting to leverage technology to drive efficiency and effectiveness in their trade promotion processes. The results have been less than successful: key KPIs such as promotion ROI or out-of-stock rates during promotional periods have remained unchanged or in many cases worsened.

 

Even more troubling, investments in point solutions have failed, with many CPG companies still relying on Excel as their primary TPM solution. Through the power of Anaplan’s connected planning approach, we are delivering a next-generation TPM solution that is integrated into the strategic volume planning process that ensures sales and trade marketers can plan and manage the optimal investment of their trade dollars.
