With Blacksmith's TPM, Smucker's has seen faster response times and has eliminated data accuracy issues. The improved reporting for trade claims has helped our team reduce our open deduction balance to an all-time low.

Trade Investment ROI grew more than 16% because we achieved volume objectives and stayed within budgeted spending with Blacksmith TPO. Furthermore, the system was live and we trained all users in only 10 weeks.
