Use Case: Spend Management

Take control of marketing’s investments

“Before Allocadia, we couldn’t answer the question ‘How much did we spend on demand generation in a specific region?’. Now, we can within a day.”

Chethan Chandra | Former Senior Manager of Business Operations

Challenges Marketers Face

1

Lack of visibility

Marketers struggle to understand how much is being spent, where it is being spent, and when it will hit the books.

2

Missing the target

Without accurate numbers, marketers miss spend targets and trust in marketing is lost.

3

Conflicting processes

Finance and marketing manage investments differently, leading to hours spent reconciling budgets and invoices.

CMOs need to assure the board that marketing budgets do not become a black box activity. Without concrete analysis, trust erodes.
