MZB-USA is a vertically integrated company dedicated solely to delivering the very best cup of coffee on earth.

The Exceedra platform provides MZB-USA with an easy-to-use solution to better manage the sales planning and trade promotion management process across Sales, Finance, Supply Chain, Demand Planning, and Marketing. This will enable MZB-USA to automate both the pre and post evaluations of trade promotions, as well as customer business plans, in one system—by providing better-informed decision making.
“We reviewed the marketplace for a solution that would help simplify planning while increasing our capabilities around TPO and post-event analysis. We found Exceedra to be the best fit for us and we’re thrilled that Exceedra will help advance our integrated business planning process,” commented Mike Rakowski, VP Retail Sales at MZB-USA.
