Adesso Earns Best-In-Class Distinction: POI Analysts Cite Client Collaboration, UX, Analytics & Value

Rolling Meadows, IL. September 6, 2018 – Adesso Solutions, a leading US provider of Trade Promotion Management solutions for North American small-midsized CPG companies, is excited to have once again earned the distinction “Best-in-Class” for External Collaboration in the 2018 TPx Vendor Panorama, published by Promotion Optimization Institute (POI).

As key POI analyst, Dale Hagemeyer notes, “We also like the way the company seeks to enable interactions between user organizations at its own seminars or other events to facilitate best practice transfer.” Hagemeyer also comments, “Client upgrade activity continues to be strong as a sign of satisfaction and commitment.”

Among some of the most noteworthy recognitions from this annual evaluation was for User Experience. “The UX has also improved significantly from last year. It is more graphically oriented. The ease of taking data into the “Offline Planner” is noteworthy. It is intuitive and easy to use,” said Hagemeyer. “For usability, POI rate Adesso UX as Above Average, due to the recent enhancements in dashboards, reports, and usability.”

The Vendor Panorama noted that Adesso’s Analytics have been enhanced substantially since the last report. “They are now a standard package that are role-based for both dashboards and reporting. We characterize the analytics as insightful and succinct. POI continues to rate Adesso Analytics as Above Average.” Said Hagemeyer
Once again, Promotion Optimization Institute described Adesso as “a complete TPM solution that is a good value for the money.” In particular, the report cited Adesso as “a steady, if not strong growth vendor, particularly in the SMB and natural foods market with a TPM-only solution focused solely on North America. The additional services around access to industry experts and outsourced system administration are a real plus and improve client satisfaction.”

Fred Schroeder, President & CEO at Adesso Solutions commented, “Client input and collaboration is key to our ongoing strategic initiatives and system improvements. We facilitate business process discussions for how to continually improve trade spending management and strategies.” He continued, “Our client-partners are therefore excited to upgrade, as new releases incorporate what the community needs next in their journey.”
