As a Consumer Goods manufacturer, it’s typical to be driven by two major goals: pleasing your customers and matching the retailers demand for your product.
The holiday seasons are the prime time that you’ll be under the spotlight to match those demands. It’s no surprise, as all your competitors are playing the game and will be releasing promotions galore to drive up their sales.
As a result, it’s a smart idea to follow suit and start releasing promotions of your own. However, it’s only a great idea if you can nail your promotions management and accurately keep track of all your costs and margins.
It’s time to stop managing your promotions in Excel
The thought of managing a mass promotional campaign in Excel gives us the shivers. There is no way that anybody in your business can confidently say with a straight face that all the data that resides on an Excel spreadsheet is 100% accurate and consistent. If by some miracle it’s not error-strewn, it still won’t be linked to all your other data.
If a customer rings you up and asks: “Can you tell me how much I’ll be charged when placing an order and the quantity required to meet the next price break?” Panic stations will be in action, as you scramble to find the correct spreadsheet, before providing a potentially incorrect answer that may have been duplicated.
