socoto provides Triumph Motorrad Deutschland GmbH (the German arm of Triumph Motorcycles) with a simple solution for controlling complex, dealer-specific marketing activities
The perfect riding experience, fully customised, is the trademark of Triumph Motorcycles. Therefore, it is fitting that the company has chosen socoto to assist them in the customisation of their marketing planning, to meet the location-specific needs of each dealer and to steer their marketing activities into the fast lane. Triumph Motorcycles now utilizes socoto's comprehensive marketing tools and have implemented a marketing management system that ensures the planning, implementation and evaluation of complex marketing activities are conducted in an efficient, cost-effective way.
"At Triumph Motorrad Deutschland, we were looking for a flexible solution to take the quality and quantity of our trade organisation's marketing activities to the next level. The main focus was on creating an intuitive and easy-to-learn solution to support our partners in planning and executing their marketing activities in the best possible way", says Oliver Willand, Director of Marketing & Public Relations Triumph. "The socoto system led in the end to a much more consistent and intensive communication across all channels and levels of our organisation."
Clear and transparent
socoto and Triumph Motorcycles implemented a marketing portal that meets these requirements and makes the PoS communications of the individual dealers simple and manageable. A top-down marketing plan with all national and regional activities creates the necessary overview for both headquarters and dealers. Especially for Triumph, socoto has developed a customer-oriented and easy-to-understand scorecard, which makes it possible to measure the performance of the individual dealers on the basis of points. Participation in events, ordering of shop articles or advertising material - everything flows into the ranking. In addition, budgets can be planned and reserved via the marketing plan.
Budget planning - automated and autonomous
Planning helps to utilise available budgets effectively and to keep a consistent overview. By means of an individual in-line report, individual traders can clearly keep track of what they have already spent, what is currently planned as well as, soon-to-be integrated, invoice and rebate tracking. The process is flexible and Triumph Head Office can also release additional planning budget ad-hoc to individual retailers for certain measures, so that individual retailers can take full advantage of market conditions.
For the Head Office and Regional Managers at Triumph, the marketing portal provides access to rights-and-roles based reports that summarise daily which retailer has participated in which campaign, with which input and output, as well as which budget share has been assigned or is already planned. With this bundling of processes and the use of one tool, socoto streamlines time-consuming work and query processes and reduces working time for data consolidation.
"The socoto solution convinced us with its range of functions, modularity and high flexibility. In addition, there is an extremely motivated and helpful team that supports us at all times in implementing our wishes and special requirements," adds Oliver Willand.
