The New Standard
of connected commerce marketing

Use Data to plan, manage and evaluate your campaigns, or retail estate effectively.

Commerce marketing

is messy.

But we're here to help.

Budget and keep track of your spend

Managing spend cross-retail across a portfolio of brands can be messy. With everything in one place, you can easily budget and keep track of your spend in real-time.

We Take Pride in Our Numbers

Our story

Born 7 years ago, Plan-Apps was initially created as an internal tool within the SMG business to help our team of shopper marketeers work more efficiently. But as the platform grew, the power of data and insights allowed our team to not only work more efficiently, but more intelligently. We recognised the lack of consistency and transparency across the industry and figured, why keep it to ourselves?

So, we launched Plan-Apps as an external platform, acting as the operating system that connects brands and retailers to streamline planning,  media buying, budgeting, and evaluating commerce marketing activity.

The
benefits?

Evaluate all in-store activity programmatically

Supplier brands need to know what works, so they can direct their investment successfully and grow it over time. 

 

Analyse the effects of all in-store activity and report back at brand, SKU and category level. Metrics include % Uplift, £ Uplift  and ROI, and benchmarking from Plan-Apps' unrivalled Trends database.

Allocate media across

stores using AI

 

Trying to allocate hundreds of campaigns across an estate of several thousand stores?

No problem.

 

Plan-Apps algorithmically ensures that campaigns are only sent where product is distributed and ensures a ‘fair share’ of store footfall across multiple competing brands.

Build and share your media toolkit

With Media, you can build a shareable media catalogue with all the key facts for your supplier base.

 

Supporting rich text, imagery and statistics from the Insight module, Media gets the basics done brilliantly so suppliers and colleagues can find the right touchpoint, fast.
