High Performance Automated Category Review Templates
Designed for Lean Teams with Lean Budgets
Most organizations struggle with finding enough time to create dynamic, data driven category review presentations for their sales teams. The process of creating presentations across hundreds of retailers, and keeping the data current, is time consuming and tedious. And it keeps business analysts and your sales team from spending time on more productive and meaningful tasks.
Our best practice category review templates have been curated over many years’ experience with the leading consumer package goods manufacturers and enable you to quickly create a compelling selling story customized at the retailer level for your entire sales team.
Our automation process will eliminate the hundreds of hours each month wrangling the data, making sure that charts, text, footers, and fonts are all consistent and then having to customize the presentation for different accounts, time periods and categories. XP3 XPress templates will save your team a huge amount of time and empower them to move on to more analytical, insightful tasks.
