The Challenge – Intelligent Marketing

Good decision-making results in positive returns. Data proliferation, integration
difficulties, localized market conditions, and intense price-based competition impact marketing investments, thereby making business outcomes a continuing challenge.

Good decision-making across an enterprise will often be the difference between making or missing corporate objectives. Use of systems to facilitate comprehensive analysis and planning enables many timely alternatives
to be evaluated.

  • NaviGATE™ is a marketing planning, analysis, and decision-support tool. It enables measurement and optimization of marketing ROI based on predictive, analytic models.

Key Features Drive Ease of Use and Adoption

Data Management & Integration: Capitalize on MSA’s extensive experience in data management, integration and analysis to ensure that the significant challenges of preparing disparate data for automated analysis are effectively addressed.

Easy Incorporation of Models: The NaviGATE Application is optimized for MSA-generated models. However, incorporating client-generated models or client modifications to MSA models is easily accomplished.

Seamless Implementation: The data and models underlying the application can reside at MSA or at client sites. The application is also flexible in that it serves either as stand-alone or as an upstream or downstream extension for promotion-management and supply-chain applications.

Continuous Model Updates: Model coefficients are automatically updated as new data becomes available so that promotional effects can be always based on the most recent data.
