The Value of FORGE
FORGE delivers workflow automation, program creation capabilities, transactional data visibility, profit controls, and the backing of a team with decades of CPG experience. Realize valuable time savings and financial gains through use of the application and by leveraging insights from system analytics. FORGE is the TPM software market-leader, providing a single set of tools to streamline your end-to-end trade spend needs across channels.
Create Programs with Ease
FORGE allows you to enter new program proposals for all types of customers programs – including operator and distributor. The application will automatically generate a program P&L for review. You can configure approval guidelines based on margin, cost and available budget. Auto-approval can be used for programs that meet the guidelines and those requiring approval will be automatically routed in the workflow. Because all customer programs flow through the system, you can be assured that margin assessments will be accurate. No averages or estimates.
Settle Claims in Less Time
FORGE reduces manual processes and improves settlement outcomes via automated billback claim calculations and validation workflows. Claims with insignificant deviations can be processed automatically. Documentation to resolve deviations can be auto-retrieved. Set up auto-pay with system generated reports that outline payment details. Internal and external process communications are generated in the application to improve the flow of information. FORGE gives you the visibility you need to track customer purchases relative to program commitments.
Gain Profitable Insights
FORGE delivers powerful analytical functionality to help you make impactful business decisions. Online and offline tools and reports provide access to all financial metrics associated with your trade spend. Review performance when and how you need to: by customer, division, region, sales team or rep, broker, product line…even by individual SKU. Never walk into a business or sales meeting wondering if your metrics are accurate again. Be assured that they are.
