With extensive scalability and depth, Clear Demand’s Tobacco Pricing Solution (TPS) is the only rules-based application capable of providing seamless integration and automation of promotional allowance management (buy-down allowances) for enterprise and independent tobacco retailers.

Tobacco retailers struggle with the complexity of data management specific to promotional programs and state compliance requirements.

Clear Demand’s extensive library of retailer and manufacturer rules and over 20 years of expertise create the exceptional opportunity to manage retail prices for optimized revenue and profitable outcomes for tobacco.

Clear Demand is once again providing an industry first in pricing solutions. Clear Demand’s deep integration with Altria’s price promotion API and retailer’s POS, and price book systems assure trading partners of seamless data integration, process automation, accuracy, and tobacco price management for best-in-class operations.
