What is Trade promotion management?
Trade promotion management is the process of planning, managing and executing trade promotions. Usually, the sales team is in the lead, aligning internally with demand and finance teams. As the point of execution usually are retail outlet, plan accounts are also involved in the process.
What is Trade promotion optimisation?
Trade promotion optimisation is the process of continuous improvement of promotional effectiveness and efficiency, driving increased ROI. TPO is a continuous loop: following execution of a promotion, learnings are captured to improve future promotions.
Whilst in the past this was often a manual process, today there is trade promotion management software like Visualfabriq’s to support sales teams. The Trade Promotion Master integrates the data sources that in the past were manually combined, such as ex-factory volumes, syndicated and Electronic Point of Sales (EPoS) data.
Supported by enhanced AI, trade promotion optimisation delivers continuous feedback: when a user creates a new promotion, all learnings from past promotions are used to propose the optimal scenario. Trade promotion optimization solution, therefore, is no longer a standalone process: with Visualfabriq, optimization is available at all time, without effort.
Can I integrate the Trade Promotion Master with my ERP system?
Absolutely! Integration between Visualfabriq and a customer’s ERP system is a standard phase of our deployment approach. As our aim is to remove all manual administration, we make sure that our platform is your one stop shop: plan and approve to trigger a message.
Is Visualfabriq trade promotion management software secure?
At Visualfabriq the security of client’s data is paramount. Therefore, Visualfabriq is fully certified for:
ISO 27001 – ISO/IEC 27001
SOC 1 – SOC 1SM

What sort of data can Visualfabriq integrate in your platform?
Visualfabriq supports the integration of all ERP systems. Integration works both ways: the platform pulls in master data and sends pricing, conditions and volumes.
Visualfabriq also integrates in-market data: syndicated data (such as Nielsen, IRI), Electronic Point of Sales (EPoS) data. Even weather reports!
Can I use floor pricing in Visualfabriq’s trade promotion management solution?
Absolutely! It’s clear that setting thresholds for prices and discounts can be key to maintain a minimum level of profitability. Visualfabriq supports floor price management and can incorporate floor prices in warning messages and approval flows.
Can Visualfabriq supply a full logbook of adjustments and approvals for audit purposes?
Governance and compliance are key in the CPG industry. Every change made in the Trade Promotion Master is fully captured in a logbook. This logbook is available on the platform, to track actions. But rest assured, there won’t be any surprises. The platform has a role based workflow. This means that organisations determine themselves who is allowed to perform what action. It is also possible to add approval rules such as thresholds. All to make sure any action on the platform is entirely audit proof.
Does Visualfabriq’s platform allow me to settle claims for my trade promotions?
It definitely does! The Trade Promotion Master fully integrates with the Visualfabriq Claims module.
What if I have a risk or an opportunity, can I capture those too?
Of course! An opportunity to execute an additional promotion that an account manager does not yet want to formally plan. A retailer that threatens to pull a promotion of the calendar. Visualfabriq enables commercial teams to simply capture risks and opportunities as part of the Demand Forecast Master offering.
