GreetingsFromPetaluma

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.”

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.”

Are you sure the TPM solution you are reviewing is fully transactional?

Some solutions are being positioned as fully transactional, able to handle all the trade promotion management needs of CPG manufacturers, so you have to be careful what you are reviewing. Therefore, you need to make sure they are capable of executing each step in the traditional TPM process of Plan, Execute, Monitor, Settle and Analyze.
There are several things to do to avoid making the wrong purchase.Continue reading

It’s Not Just About the TPM Software

Too many small and medium sized (SMB) CPG’s seem to think that the “TPM software” is the panacea that will be the answer to their problems. 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.
