O Olive Oil & Vinegar Goes Live with Flamingo TPM


Actively Planning Trade in the System in Just 9 Weeks! 

Rolling Meadows, IL. August 6, 2020 – Adesso Solutions is pleased to officially welcome O OLIVE OIL & VINEGAR, a Curation Foods company, to the community of client-partners who leverage the Flamingo TPM system for improving their trade planning and reconciliation management. In just nine weeks after starting the setup of the system, O OLIVE OIL & VINEGAR is planning trade promotions in the system, reconciling deductions from QuickBooks via Adesso’s proprietary connectors, as well as involving broker partners in the process to minimize administrative time for the internal team.

Paul Ryzanych, National Director of Sales & Marketing at O OLIVE OIL & VINEGAR said, “We are focused on growth, and having a system in place enables our brokers to input deals, attach contracts and match all deductions. This significantly reduces time needed internally. Additionally, we now have powerful reporting at our fingertips, which was time-consuming, cumbersome, and manual when we used spreadsheets.”

“We are already enjoying the partnership with O OLIVE OIL & VINEGAR,” said Fred Schroeder, President & CEO at Adesso Solutions. “Working with the team has been a pleasure, and we look forward to deepening the relationship with their sales, finance and broker teams through our ongoing AdessoU training program, as well as ongoing client collaboration events that will continue to enhance our systems and services for the TPE Community as a whole.”

Therefore, they send out their RFP and call in the usual solution providers in the TPM space for “demos” of the solution. And so it kicks off the next “rush to the demo” on the part of the providers anxious to display their fancy approach to clearing a deduction and how few clicks it takes to perform a particular function.
But this approach can be very misleading because maximizing trade promotion effectiveness (TPE) requires much more than just the software. It’s also about the approach, the partnership with the provider, and the ability to tap into a community of other SMB CPG’s for perspective and benchmarking. Continue reading
