of shopper marketers
rank their process efficiency
While trade promotion, retail execution and other essential CPG activities leverage technology to automate processes and unify insights, shopper marketing fails to modernize. In fact, our 2018 Shopper Marketing Optimization Report found that 78% rank their shopper marketing process efficiency as average or worse, even though 84% say improving shopper marketing agility and cost is more critical than ever.
With lack of modernization impacting performance, shopper marketing optimization has become critical to maximizing revenue and securing retail partnership.
