Adesso Has NO Clients on the ‘Forbes Top 25 Food & Beverage’ List

Adesso Has NO Clients on the Forbes Top 25 Food & Beverage List

However, We Make a Major Difference Supporting Small-Midsize North American CPG Manufacturers.

by Fred Schroeder

Other TPM providers in our industry have recently touted their penetration for various types of systems across the Forbes Global ‘Top 25 Food & Beverage’ list. Over half of this list is comprised of tobacco, alcohol and durables. However, we do not have, nor do we aspire to have, any clients on this list.

At Adesso, we hire team members that clearly have demonstrated a background and knowledge on the North American CPG market. Additionally, we focus our solutions around the uniqueness, challenges and opportunities. This includes our clients and ‘not yet’ clients who face trade spending every day – in the conventional retail segment and in the natural, specialty and organic segment.

Adesso Earns CGT AwardsThis focus has been recognized consistently by the Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) Readers’ Choice Award. 

This Award annually recognizes the consumer goods industry’s top technology and service providers, as selected by their end users. With Adesso’s “SMB Market Leader for TPM” recognition, the CGT recently cited some of Adesso’s SMB clients. They called the company and its CPG-focused solutions:

  • “Responsive to our needs and always willing to help.”
  • “User-friendly and intuitive.”
  • “A great system to manage trade.”
    “Very accommodating and easy to use.”
  • “Very simple to use — and it works.” 
  • “The Adesso team is great to work with.”

In short, unlike others in our industry, we do not aim to serve the ‘Forbes Top 25 Food & Beverage Companies’, nor global conglomerates. Our client-partners are small to midsize CPG manufacturers in the North American market with similar challenges and opportunities. They look to effectively track and manage their trade spending and become more effective through a community-based approach.

So, If you are looking for the best TPM system, supporting services to improve usage from your team, and eliminate unnecessary administration – all at a fair price with immediate ROI, contact Adesso Solutions. 

And feel free to ask our clients!

"One of our major objectives was to improve accountability. We previously used spreadsheets to allocate GL accounts to the right customers, and were limited to unofficial deal approvals through email. Flamingo TPM is easy to use, and has the functionality we need."
