We know that effective management of marketing procurement tasks across brands, categories, campaigns and time zones can be daunting. Understanding total costs and driving savings are only two small pieces of the wider puzzle. Establishing the most efficient media as well as the processes needed to deliver high quality materials on time and on brand is imperative to success. Marketing procurement cost analysis Clarifying marketing procurement spend We recognize that hidden cost centres, a variety of systems in multiple regions spread across many data owners can lead to a lack of consistency and comparability between categories, systems and countries. As a result, we know it can be difficult to gain a true understanding of marketing procurement spend. Our expert team of data-crunching analysts provide a globally comprehensive and consistent review of your marketing procurement spend, reconciling diverse data sources to provide a complete picture of your current spend to identify opportunities for savings. From this we develop cost models and return on investment insight, as well as provide practical recommendations covering a range of options with associated impacts – all with an eye toward safeguarding spend from subsequent sourcing and printing decisions.
