Comprehensive Session

Explore how the industry is responding to the challenge

Description – Most CPG firms attempt to address the “demand-side issues” by throwing an inordinate amount of resources into the trade. They give away generous retail margin, pump in a lot of dollars in trade promotions, and extend excess credit to trade among other forms of retail investments. On the supply side, they tend to optimize locally within a function. Both of these approaches, more often than not, destroy value.

Join us for us a fireside chat session with Bob Debicki – Sr. Director, CPG & Retail, Anaplan, and Indranil Das – Global Capability Leader – CPG, ITC Infotech where they will discuss how “Integrated Trade Planning Solution” can help you make better trade resource allocation decisions and achieve superior ROI on Trade Spend.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Create one integrated framework for demand planning, commercial planning, trade targeting, retail execution, performance evaluation.
  • How to keep operating the feedback loop for continuous iteration through subsequent cycles of planning.
  • How integrated approach helps chase “one global optimum — maximize return on trade investment” rather than chasing multiple local optima’s
