Promotion ROI: How AWG Retailers Win by Expanding the Types of Vendor Funding Options
By Aptaris / December 2014Insights
We knew we would be achieving some significant results for Associates Wholesale Grocers when we began working with them to install what was then called a vendor portal. Now, less than a year since that initial implementation, we would like to share some of the eye-opening outcomes that AWG has delivered to its member retailers.
New Rules of Vendor Funding
AWG wanted to give member retailers a competitive edge and get ahead of the curve when it comes to promotion innovation. By coordinating more closely with vendors, connecting all the parts of the process and automating workflows, AWG and its member retailers developed new ways to capture more vendor dollars and have profit from the changing rules of vendor funding:
- Vendors requiring more accountability
- New types of trade funds challenging old systems and processes
- Technology transforming how to reach shoppers and drive demand
- Competitive pressures driving need for staff efficiency for speed, agility and more strategic activities
