Accenture to Help Kimberly-Clark Latin America Operations Maximise Growth with Improved Trade Promotion Management and Forecasting
NEW YORK; Mar. 20, 2017 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by Kimberly-Clark Latin America Operations (LAO) to help the leading consumer goods company increase profitable growth through effective trade promotion management.
Accenture will develop a trade promotion management (TPM) template based on Accenture’s Trade Promotion Management platform to help improve trade spend effectiveness for the business in Latin American markets. Accenture will help Kimberly-Clark LAO deploy the new TPM template across Latin America to standardize its sales planning and execution in the region.
As part of the program, Accenture is also providing Kimberly-Clark LAO with statistical modelling services designed to improve the accuracy of its forecasting and prediction of promotional activities. This will help enable Kimberly-Clark to accurately measure its impact on promotions and obtain a precise picture of the return on investment of their promoted products across its distribution network.
“We are delighted to work with Kimberly-Clark LAO, which is addressing the entire Latin American market with one common business process and solution, as opposed to single-country deployments,” said Alex Kushnir, managing director in Accenture’s Consumer Goods and Services practice. “Kimberly-Clark LAO is focused on improving consumer relevance and retailer collaboration. By deploying Accenture Trade Promotion Management solution Kimberly-Clark LAO has access to a full set of services and assets to support its entire TPM needs in Latin America. Furthermore, it can use the template to support international expansion.”
This new project builds on the work that Accenture has carried out with Kimberly-Clark in China, where Accenture implemented the Accenture TPM platform to help successfully expand Kimberly-Clark footprint in that region.
