Case Study: Clients Reduce Deduction Resolution Time


4 Differentiators Among Clients Who Dramatically Reduce Deduction Resolution Time

Rolling Meadows, IL. June 28, 2021 – Adesso Solutions announced today a case study demonstrating 4 differentiators among clients who reduce their deduction resolution time most significantly. As Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) for deduction resolution time remains one of CPG manufacturers’ top priorities, Adesso developed an in-depth analysis of those clients who are most successful, and found four distinct differentiators that were common among these clients.

While extremely important for all CPG manufacturers, this finding is especially critical to those in the Natural-Specialty segment where many lack a defined process and have little handle on their total trade budget at a customer level. In fact, Adesso’s analysis revealed that clients who leverage simple the process within Flamingo, along with these differentiators, reconcile all deductions within 60 days and over 85% within the first 30 days!

“Our brokers enter deals, clear our deductions, do our repay and the check requests – – they do it all and we currently have no deductions over 60 days,” said Karen Prophet, Promotions and Trade Spend Manager at Idahoan Foods. “My brokers tell me that Adesso is the most user-friendly system they have in their office. We have brokers recommend Adesso to other clients that they have.”

“Flamingo TPM is a great place to manage trade and deductions, all in one place,” said Diana Lester, Promotional Accountant at American Pop Corn Company. “Having all trade information in one system gives me complete visibility into our spending; I can log into the system to see what we are spending at every customer, view all of our plans in a Promotional Calendar, and click to drill down and see details and contracts associated with any deal.”
