The Complexica team have delivered considerable value at each stage and will continue to be a valued partner to LMG”.

Complexica's Promotional Campaign Manager (PCM) will centralise and automate a wide variety of complex analytical tasks associated with the process of building effective promotional campaigns for more than 1,400 retail stores. The software will provide:
- Automated data loading and handling, interpretation, and analysis of the purchase history and scan data of more than 25,000 SKUs;
- Automated analytics for understanding the effectiveness of promotional campaigns in previous time periods; and
- Robust analytical capabilities required by LMG’s head and state offices to share promotional campaign activities with its retail stores and liquor suppliers.
Complexica's Promotional Campaign Manager (PCM) will interface with LMG’s data warehouse to access store-level purchase history and scan data, so that LMG staff can build promotional campaigns and pricing on a product, product group, and region level. The software will also replace the current promotional processes and systems used by LMG, which are based on a variety of spreadsheets and ad-hoc reports.
