Intelligent Spend Management

Giving Brands more accountability on marketing spend

Brands pour billions into Co-Op Advertising, MDF or other funding options every year, with minimal to no understanding of how that money performs.

SproutClaims

SproutClaims is SproutLoud’s cost-saving claims management system:

SproutClaims feature within comprehensive SaaS marketing platform

• SproutLoud replicates and simplifies the Brand’s existing Co-Op Claims and Reimbursement system within the platform, saving Brands up to 50% on claims processing costs.

• Partners simply select tactics or marketing programs that offer Co-Op, MDF or other funds, then they use brand-compliant customization options available with Studio.

• With SproutLoud’s easy-to-navigate analytics dashboards, Brands can determine ROI on local marketing campaigns and measure Partner engagement on the platform.

SproutPay Instant Funding

SproutPay Instant Funding is an intuitive co-pay system that makes participating in Brand-subsidized local advertising as easy as online shopping:

• SproutPay allows Brands to attach a percentage or preset amount of Co-Op, MDF or other funds to specific tactics or marketing programs.

• When Partners select those tactics or programs, Brand funds are applied immediately at checkout.

• Partners only pay their portion of local marketing costs.

• This eliminates the typical upfront expenses that require Partners to submit claims and request reimbursement.

• Then, Partners continue using SproutLoud’s platform to select tactics and programs with Partner Portal, customize assets with Studio, flawlessly execute local marketing with our integrated ecosystem of world-class Marketing Service Integrations, and easily access performance metrics with SproutLoud Analytics.

• When every aspect of local marketing, from start to finish, occurs within the SproutLoud platform, Partners can get Brand messages in local markets faster.

• The rest of the Brand’s network would seamlessly continue claims processing with SproutClaims.

• As quickly or gradually as the Brand prefers, SproutLoud can migrate more Partners to SproutPay, based on criteria pre-determined by the Brand.
