In this category of growth, a pretty significant transformation is taking place. Your company is out of start-up mode.
Some growing brands have created their own tools/systems to manage sales planning, trade spending, and deductions. Others have invested in a TPM platform. Some of the dynamics we see in brands in this stage are:
“Growing” brands already using BluePlanner TPM can upgrade to another edition of the TPM service, add analytics, data integration/transformation, or add other services (i.e. TPO, IBP, RGM). If you’re switching from another set of tools or platform, UpClear’s phased, rapid deployment methodology will get your team started quickly.
Once you’re with UpClear, you can grow into more sophisticated capabilities easily. We are true Software as a Service (SaaS); one always-growing, global platform through which you access all BluePlanner services.
