Zug — 22.03.2022 — retailsolutions announced today that its Promotion Planning & Calendar application (PP&C) is now available on SAP® Store and is part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for the retail industry. The offering allows customers to plan, create and forecast their promotions using real-time data in a centralised place, enhancing planning activities operationally and providing strategic insight.
The Promotion Planning & Calendar solution leverages the innovation and integration capabilities of SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) to integrate with SAP Customer Activity Repository using SAP Integration Suite. The integrated application helps to optimize the customer’s end-to-end promotion planning process – from campaign and offer planning to execution and promotional communication.
“In the retail industry, customers require customized solutions unique to their business and industry,” said Alexander Kunkel, Head of Competency Center SAP Promotion Management at retailsolutions. “A major benefit of PP&C is its simple and clear handling. A user-friendly front end using SAP Fiori® technology enables users to manage all promotional activities in their area of responsibility. A clear calendar format visualizes all planned activities, making time-consuming and error-prone spreadsheets no longer necessary.”
The implementation of PP&C can provide users with significant added value for the management of all marketing activities, including:
- Process efficiencies through time savings during the planning process, increased accuracy, and no double data entry
- Reduction in lost revenue through more efficient campaign planning
- Increase in vendor rebates, resulting in margin improvements
- Reduction in reliance of legacy solutions
- Reduction in margin loss by avoiding overlapping promotions
“The Promotion Planning & Calendar application developed by retailsolutions complements SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for retail, enhances user experience, and helps boost the efficiency of the promotion planning process,” said Achim Schneider, head of SAP Retail, Industry Business Unit, SAP. “This is a prime example of how co-innovation between our organizations can deliver value for our customers. We look forward to continued collaboration with retailsolutions to create innovative cloud solutions and applications for customers who want to improve business metrics and drive sustainable growth in their industry.”
