Best for small CPG brands just getting into retail and looking for ways to support the complexity of planning and handling deductions.
We understand growing brands have a lot of things to juggle and scale, but dealing with inefficient and cumbersome deductions from distributors like UNFI and KeHE shouldn't be one of them. Let us take that off your plate. For less than half the cost of an employee, we'll own the entire process for you so you can focus on the #1 goal, increasing distribution.
With our Emerging Plus plan, you can build your trade plan in Vividly and let us handle the backend reconciliation and dispute process.
Being able to look at historical data, minimize the planning redundancy, and stay organized at an early stage is key to scaling a successful CPG company. Many brands we've talked to wish they had a system earlier so their historical data could be leveraged for future planning, so we took that feedback and built this lightweight, easy-onboarding process to support smaller brands.
On average, it takes an accountant 40-60% of their day to pull check receipt supporting documentation. By gaining visibility to deduction details, you can save money by decreasing time spent in reviewing data and decreasing days deductions outstanding.
Our team will upload your customer portal & e-mail back-up on a daily basis for UNFI, KeHE, Kroger, DPI, Costco, and more!
With our white-glove Deduction Reconciliation service, our team will authorize deduction expenses on your behalf and upload all your trade spend onto the Vividly platform.
This will give you real-time analytics about how your promotions are performing, including which items are unreconciled, so you can settle your deductions faster.
Of the invalid deductions we find, we successfully dispute 82%, which means more money back in your pocket. For a brand spending $1M in trade promotions, this could potentially be hundreds of thousands of dollars, every year.
Did you know? It can take an accountant upto 30% of their day just to pull check receipt supporting documentation.

Vividly has allowed Lily’s to efficiently create and track promotion activity with direct and indirect accounts. Not only do we have better visibility to retailer level trade rates, we are able to tighten our accrual expense based on historical views of promotional activity. Vividly has provided us the internal controls we were missing which are permission structure and contract compliance. Questions? The embedded intercom app provides comfort to those in our organization that aren’t tech-savvy individuals.
The more we grow, the more we need a means of efficiently and effectively planning, tracking and analysing our promotion activity. Vividly offers a strong toolset that streamlines the process, helps us stretch every dollar as far as it will go, and gives us the firm control we need over trade spend.
Vividly provided us the ability to scan 100+ pages of larger retailer scan and coupon bill backs and quickly built out the ability of scanning a completely new back-up source we had trouble with. With its quick turn around time on implementation and development, we are now able to much more easily reconcile our top retailers’ trade spend.
