Washington, DC (Vocus) July 8, 2010
Applied Predictive Technologies, Inc. (APT), the leading provider of Test & Learn Management Systems for Consumer Products Manufacturers and Retailers, today announced a new and innovative approach to effectively measure and enhance shopper marketing initiatives with APT Test & Learn™.
As grocery retailers and CPG manufacturers are striving to be more shopper-centric and deliver more tailored value propositions to shoppers, they are collaborating more than ever before in order to align their efforts and maximize returns from their joint investments. One area of increasing focus for both trading partners is shopper marketing which is experiencing rapid growth in the industry.
As shopper marketing takes off, the variety and creativity of shopper marketing efforts presents challenges to both manufacturers and retailers who are attempting to determine which shopper marketing campaigns and tactics have the most impact. Traditional measurement approaches have not proved sufficient for this new paradigm of shopper marketing. Consequently, a new approach is required to more effectively measure and analyze shopper marketing campaigns that can involve entirely new merchandising and marketing concepts and cut across multiple brands and categories.
APT Test & Learn has been proven very effective in measuring and analyzing a variety of creative shopper marketing campaigns. The software analyzes at various levels of the product and store hierarchies shopper marketing campaigns that integrate components from media advertising, consumer promotions and trade promotions. APT’s sophisticated Test & Learn approach determines which shopper marketing components are driving value, which are merely adding cost and complexity, and at which locations the campaigns are working best. APT’s software then provides the predictive analytics that can forecast the likely impact of the campaign on other stores and markets to target the rollout and enhance the ROI.
