“Using Shopperations as our Shopper platform we were able to establish a true Shopper initiative. From zero to 200+ events engaging a team of 5 Shopper experts across the country with the confidence that all these moving parts were in control. In my 29 years in the CPG industry, I have never ramped up a department that quickly. Shopperations gave us the visibility and accountability that allowed us to move at that pace.”
Planning and Collaboration Platform
For Retail and Brand Marketers
“While I was away on vacation, my Sales team suddenly needed to share our Shopper Marketing plans with a retail client. Instead of frantically calling me to send the latest calendar, they were able to log in and get all the answers in Shopperations. We love that Shopperations makes it effortless to keep everyone on the same page!”
“I’ve found Shopperations to be an extremely helpful, easy-to-use tool that makes it much easier to sort through the multitude of shopper program details and glean the kind of information that is valuable to our clients and brands. I’d recommend it to anyone in a brand- or customer-focused shopper marketing role.”
“Shopperations is a dedicated shopper budget management tool that is many shopper managers’ dream come true. They now can accurately and efficiently report their spend and create transparency of shopper budgets!!!”
“We saw an immediate impact of Shopperations. It’s been instrumental in getting the team to become more strategic in managing their business. We are now able to understand brand investments before they happen and place our customer-specific dollars in the right spots.”
“My team has been using Shopperations for almost two years and found numerous benefits. One of the unexpected surprises was that our financial audit took just 30 minutes instead of days or weeks like it did before.”
“Shopperations helps me avoid 75% of interruptions and lets me be more strategic”.
