Pros: The software enables us to manage our business in a way not possible before. The AFS team is always available for questions and support is almost immediate. When the system has a limitation - they listen and offer solutions or look into incorporating needed changes to accomplish the task at hand.

Cons: For a non technical user - the interface used to upload information such as budgets and pricing is a bit more challenging. Using excel spreadsheets to upload data with error reports in real time would help those not as experienced with the interface function.

Overall: I am very happy with the software and the team that supports it. As our needs have evolved and our capability to utilize more of what's available has increased the tool has only become more valuable.

Pros: The system does an excellent job for promotion planning, and deduction reconciliation. Front end layout is straight forward. The ability to generate reporting around sales and trade.

Cons: System can lead itself to become overcomplicated. Promotion building can become complex, and not clear at times.

Overall: Trade Pro is a key tool in clearing deduction adequately, and provides a great center point for promotion planning with visibility. There is a lot of potential for the system and as our team improves in the system, Trade Pro provides improved features.

Pros: AFS has all the functionality to manage our trade spend. User friendly, easy setup for our users... Support team are exceptional.... very good understanding of the app and the business environment, always a pleasure working with the support team when needed.

Cons: We would like to a note or comment to a deduction at the line item and add a comment to multiply deductions at one time.

Clear deductions with positive and negative amounts in on batch.

Pros: I really like that it is very stable and trustworthy . Other trade systems that I have used in the past were often "down" or had issues with data integrity.

Cons: There is very little that I don't like about this software. I guess it would be that if a rebate if increased in an approved/committed promotion that started in the past, the system does not ask for reapproval.

Overall: Overall experience is excellent. I love this Trade Promotion Management system.

Pros: AFS is a good TPM system that can do most of the tasks you would expect from it. Also, they are constantly improving the system, and adding in new features that their customers request.

Cons: The system is not very user friendly. Little things like being able to use the internet browser controls to go back or refresh would be helpful.

Pros: This software is intuitive, predictable, reliable and useful across the organization. It's tremendous horse power for the money.

Cons: The inability to perform ROI to the indirect level given direct expenditures do not flow to the indirect level.

Overall: We have been able to standardize our forecasting system for both revenue and trade spending. We receive accurate and timely reporting showing where we're at to objective and forecast which is improving our planning accuracy.

Pros: I love that you can pretty much capture whatever information and compare it to the actuals in about every category.

Cons: Sometimes all of the measures to choose from make it difficult to figure out what you should really be looking at.

Overall: Being able to see the whole picture of what we are spending will be a welcomed asset to the company as a whole. A view we have not had before and the ability to drill into the information is amazing.
