TPRO Admin

Commentaires : Our planning and performance review efficiencies have improved every year thanks to TPRO!

Avantages :

My favorite TPRO Feature is the Master Calendar. User Friendly, Presentation Ready, and provides all important information for an account/product in one place.

Inconvénients :

I think there is still room for TPRO to optimize in reporting function. Right now the data is all there and easy to pull into Excel - it would be a nice add on to have pre built reports that aggregate data and compare versus prior year.

An all-inclusive solution

5 il y a 3 ans

Commentaires : Phenomenal. Often times, you sign up for a software program and find the sales team disappears once execution begins. Not the case with TPRO. The people we dealt with at the beginning are still regularly involved in our system. They are willing to listen to our ideas and have implemented many of our suggestions. We have a proven, positive ROI since implementing TPRO!

Avantages :

Allows us to plan our total business, regardless of channel. When reviewing options before signing with TPRO, many big-name syndicated data suppliers were unable to help with alternative channels. TPRO can handle it all.

Inconvénients :

No "rollup" functionality has been built in. Requires us to export and do our own rollup in Excel.

T-Pro Optimum

4 il y a 2 ans

Commentaires : The team that manages the program are great, they will help you along the way in any way you need, but you need to have the resources to get the full value of the system. If you do not, it will be an expensive bump chart that you could easily create in Excel with your own POS data.

Avantages :

The tool as designed is quite impressive. The capability to analyze your promotions and perform What If scenarios and load a full promotional calendar is great.

Inconvénients :

My biggest challenge with using this tool was the resources needed to load the POS data on a monthly basis and align the promotions to what was fed into T-PRO from your TPM system. The maintenance of new items and geography changes can be challenging too. If you have the time and resources to put against the program, it is strong, if you do not, it will not be full utilized.

Commentaires : I mainly used it to help the team with correcting the price promotions by chain. It was helpful once the promotions by brand and by chain were corrected.

Avantages :

Being able to put in price case scenarios.

Inconvénients :

A little more manual than expected by having to update each brand by size.

Novice User Feedback

4 il y a 2 ans

Commentaires : I like the potential. The challenge is becoming a power user when not using that often.

Avantages :

Once you get the hang of it (use it more frequently), it becomes more and more user friendly. (Not where I want to be but should be there with more practice. There is an enormous amount of data that can be used and parsed for analysis. I like the folder approach to guide you through all this data. The Sales and Volume Planning reports have been useful thus far. Mostly (In what I have used the software for), it does not take a long time to pull every query (except for the accrual folder; it spins for a while).

Inconvénients :

I would like to be able to download data/reports to excel (maybe there is a way, but I have not figured it out). The first few times you use, it can be pretty intimidating. It takes time to get the hang of it, but the more you use the easier it becomes. More use coupled with more training at different proficiency levels could accelerate user productivity. I have had "long spins" when I go into the accrual folder. When I launch, and every time I enter a new parameter (my name, Customer, etc.)

Very intuitive and insightful

5 il y a 2 ans

Avantages :

The ability to layer over consumption with shipments and pull reports. A lot of systems are data entry and unable to pull reports afterwards

Inconvénients :

N/A - not used it enough yet. Does seem like a multitude of pieces to enter so potentially easy to make an error or oversee something

TPRO Review

5 il y a 2 ans

Commentaires : Forecasting consumption while evaluating Profit and Loss per scenario.

Avantages :

After being explained how to use it, it provides a significant amount of Data and Analytics for the user.

Inconvénients :

Unless you take the training, it might be difficult to use based off the amount of options the software has.
