We Take Pride in Our Numbers
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.
