Let’s build your brand with brand activation management
Media consumption and shopping behavior are changing: traditional media and bricks and mortar shopping are losing share to online alternatives. This challenges CPG organizations to effectively manage their marketing spend and activities across the right channels. To meet these challenges, commercial leaders need to invest in the right campaigns at the right outlets, whilst adhering to stricter procurement and cost reporting standards. However, due to disparate planning, budgeting and reporting solutions it is hard to get insights into performance and effectively track funds at the required level of granularity.
Visualfabriq’s Marketing Events Master provides commercial leaders with software that ensures accurate planning and control over (trade) marketing spend. All input is covered by audit proof workflows. The software enables streamlined target setting and drives collaboration between commercial teams, empowered by a synchronized calendar bridging sales and marketing teams. Be ready for aligned commercial plans and winning brands.

Why Visualfabriq's Marketing Events Master?
Enjoy low total costs of ownership
Visualfabriq offers its software as a service (SaaS). All customers use the latest codebase, as maintenance and upgrades are included. This is what true SaaS is. This limited demand on the organization is paired with low implementation and maintenance costs: 100% configuration drives fast deployment and unlimited scaling capabilities allow constant growth of organization and data.
Improve efficiency through seamless data integration
With many relevant data sources, seamless integration of ex-factory data and external data sources (syndicated data, EPoS etc.) is key. Through Visualfabriq’s unique data integration layer Bifrost, customers can control their data independently, driving more trust. The result of this seamless integration? Improved forecast reliability, the certainty that financial actuals are updated promptly, and the ability to create win-win strategies that drive revenue growth for both manufacturer and account.
Remove manual work through advanced master data management
Changes in master data, especially assortment changes, take up much time within CPG organizations. Code switching is cumbersome and manual, having to be managed in demand solutions as well as promotion planning – often multiple times a year. Visualfabriq’s revenue management software features the Product Lifecycle, which handles all product switching and automatically applies it throughout the revenue growth software.
Drive efficiency with data alignment across the organization
The Visualfabriq revenue forecasting and optimization software is created as a single, integrated ecosystem logically connecting the different solutions to the Revenue Plan and each other. This ensures full alignment of data, thus driving a one-number principle throughout organizations. Efficiency to the max, no need to duplicate administration or manually knit data together.
Save time through removal of repetitive tasks
Manual administration, file generation and audit trails take up too much time in CPG organizations. Advanced automation reduces reliance on manual work and frees up time to take those actions that make the difference.
Does Visualfabriq offer a connection to external sources of data?
Absolutely. The unique Bifrost data integration layer enables customers to both load data to the software and extract reports for use in external solutions.
What is Brand Activation management software?
