Vividly is the leading modern trade promotion management (TPM) solution built by and for the consumer packaged goods industry. From campaign creation to deductions management and promotion measurement, we help brands manage every element of trade spend. With our easy-to-use platform and industry-leading experience, we pride ourselves on our ability to bring businesses to the next level.

Not familiar with trade promotion spend? It’s a multi-trillion dollar problem ripe for disruption by an innovative SaaS startup. The average consumer packaged goods (CPG) brand spends 20% of its topline revenue to promote their products… but the entire industry operates on emails, PDFs, and Excel spreadsheets!

At Vividly, we’re solving this massive problem using a modern tech stack and exciting tactics including AI, Machine Learning, and Fintech, adding value to everyone in the chain. Some of our customers include brands you may use and love—Liquid Death, Amy’s, and Laird Superfoods, to name a few.
