JustEnough InDemand - Volume 4 Issue 2
Finally, a Solution to Help You Strategically Plan Promotions

Promotions imageWhat products should we put on promotion? What impact are promotions having on their product categories? How do we ensure we'll have enough inventory to support the promotions? How can I tell how well past promotions performed?

These are questions retailers find themselves asking more and more as they become heavily reliant on promotions to improve revenues, cut costs and grow profits. But despite its rising importance in helping retailers achieve these objectives, until now promotions planning and analysis has remained a largely under-served area of the end-to-end retail planning process.

The wait is finally over. JustEnough Promotion Management is uniquely positioned to help retailers analyze past promotions and accurately plan and forecast new campaigns. This innovative solution serves as one system of record, managing a vast amount of promotional data that users can then integrate into their financial, merchandise, assortment, allocation and replenishment planning processes.

Here's what you can expect to achieve when you leverage JustEnough Promotion Management:

Create and manage effective promotional campaigns and events all within one system

Make informed and accurate decisions about what types of promotions to run, which products to promote and when and where to offer them

Integrate promotional planning into the overall retail planning processes

Collect and store past promotional data in one system of record, where it can be analyzed and used to forecast future campaigns

Easily push promotions into execution systems, like your point-of-sale solution

As a result, retailers will significantly improve the success of future promotional campaigns and events; increase sales and brand awareness; lower costs; increase promotional planning efficiency; and reduce the time to market for promotions.
