Trade Spend Programs are often a large line item on the Profit & Loss Statements of companies that distribute Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG). They are also notoriously difficult to manage, and in some companies, a full-time employee is dedicated to administering the numerous programs and buyers. When tracked manually, it can be frustrating and inaccurate. When tracked using stand-alone software, it lacks broad financial context and wastes considerable staff time reconciling with your financial solution.
The Answer Company now offers an integrated solution that extends Sage X3’s standard ERP functionality to interactively manage Trade Spend plans with Sales personnel, track deductions against individual deals, and generate meaningful analysis data to keep you focused on what matters. This means you can actually see your liabilities and owed deductions in the context of your company-wide ERP – and not waste staff time managing or reconciling.
