With pressure on margins in today's ultra competitive environment, it is imperative that Consumer Goods companies have solid plans in place that reflect a thorough analysis of the strategies and tactics used to drive top-line and bottom line results.

Incorporating best practices in the CPG industry, Abacist Group has developed a series of tools to allow Sales and Account Managers, Finance, Category Management, Marketing and Supply Chain to collaborate on the details of planning Customer Account Activity, Trade Promotions and Pricing and New Product launches.

Our Abacist Analytix for CPG tools are designed to leverage a wide variety of information from internal sales and shipment information to third party/syndicated point-of-sale data from IRI or Neilsen to enable optimal decisions.

 

Abacist Analytix Customer Account Planner enables the development of a activity-based volume & revenue build for Key Accounts.  Planners build a weekly Trade & Promotional calendar and can then assess the financial impact of that calendar to ensure that it delivers the desired results when combined with other activities like shelf-space changes, perimeter merchandising activity and news and innovation launches.  Abacist Analytix Customer Account Planner enables better Demand Planning, Financial Planning and Integrated Business Planning.

Abacist Analytix New Product Planner tools allow CPG firms to conduct rapid what-if scenarios to consider varying different attributes related to New Product and Innovation launches, and to see the financial impact of those different scenarios.  Our New Product Planning tools enable better planning for new product launches.
