MRM: The ideal solution for your local marketing
Uniform marketing, which nevertheless works individually and adapted to the locations, presents a great challenge for many companies. The problem here is to involve the many individual employees involved in marketing and to give them a platform on which not only can they communicate with one another, but also all the necessary marketing materials and the associated media files are available. Marketing Resource Management Software, MRM Software for short, offers a solution to work across locations and with different personas on joint marketing success. Marketing Resource Management (MRM) offers the possibility to combine all areas of marketing, from planning the budget and campaigns, creating the individual content to disseminating the campaigns in an MRM system. In addition, information on corporate identity can be stored in an integrated brand center and thus implemented by the partner and the entire team. Marketing Resource Management Software thus offers you an all-round carefree package for your decentralized marketing.

Workflows independent of location
In decentralized companies in particular, the challenge arises that the whole team is not located in one location, but rather across Germany or even the world. With Marketing Resource Management, all marketing resources can be accessed from different locations at the same time, thus enabling joint marketing at different locations. By using the web-based software, the team can also work on targeted local marketing in a flexible workflow. The combination of advertising material, communication and brand center ensures all the necessary ingredients for successful decentralized brand management.
The central solution for successful decentralized marketing
A company lives from the fact that the brand gets a lot of positive attention and, above all, the target group knows exactly which products and services are offered. Awareness and uniformity within the company are particularly difficult to achieve when different people communicate and advertise at different locations. This can be achieved with MRM software, however. It connects all marketing professionals involved on one platform and offers them everything they need for local, individual marketing in accordance with the corporate design. This guarantees the targeted and uniform appearance of the company. The MRM software can be individually adapted to the needs of the marketing driver. Through the integrated marketing and budget planner as well as the brand center, the MRM offers guidelines that can be used again and again and that ensure a certain degree of uniformity. Nevertheless, users can individually select which functions and advertising media appear most useful for their reality. It enables every user to access the content regardless of location and location. In addition, the open system architecture enables integration of other company-internal systems such as shops or content management systems, creating a holistic portal that leaves nothing to be desired.
