- The retailer was experiencing limited visibility of their sports protein powder products, on which promotion mechanics were delivering the largest uplift from base.
- There was limited clarity on the promotions benefits for the client versus their suppliers.
- The 4C team built a proof-of-concept model within Excel, combining promotion and sales data to demonstrate the art of the possible.
- We consequently used this data driven approach to develop a promotional effectiveness solution within 4C’s own 4Margin dashboard.
- As a result, we were able to highlight which promotions were delivering greater uplift in net sales and cash margin and how each supplier was benefitting.
- Significant savings of approximately £275k in additional retrospective support by using this approach as a negotiation lever with suppliers were identified.
- There has been a data-driven change in the promotional strategy based on our analysis that demonstrated discount (%) promotions were more effective than multi-buys, leading to increased revenue and value to the customer.
- The client benefited from a newly established dynamic promotional effectiveness model for other categories to drive further long-term improvements.
