The category leadership challenge

How Encodify help category leaders perform better

You want to help your people perform and to collaborate seamlessly. Provide them with the best tools and ensure you bring out the best in them. Happy employees equal happy customers!


So imagine having a full overview of projects, price warnings, suppliers, and marketing activities together with all your tools integrated into one platform to bring processes and people together seamlessly.  


The result is greater employee satisfaction, higher productivity, efficiency and effectiveness.

No man is an island. Category is a function that needs to collaborate and coordinate with all of the organisation. So let's include the rest of the organisation in your workflows, remove bottlenecks and focus on efficiency. Yearly planning cycles are aligned with internal stakeholders keeping everything together and making promotion planning a breeze.   


You'll ensure alignment, empowerment and progress while everybody is being heard.

Consumer habits are changing. Competitors are on the move. As a category leader, you face pressure to constantly innovate and improve your own brands, your products and services in order to stay ahead of the competition. 


Freeing up time to focus on staying on top of innovation is essential. Shortening development cycles is equally important. 


Your time to market is key, and an integrated part of Encodify. 

Ensuring a steady supply of high-quality products at competitive prices can be a significant challenge for a category leader, especially if there are disruptions in the supply chain due to factors such as natural disasters, trade disputes, or other issues.


Adding more hands doesn't solve the problem - in many cases, you have already tried. The way forward is to break down your value chain and understand how a best practice process will help you get in control of a very complex situation 


Automation of tasks and processes and having all tolls connected is a big part of solution. Its a big part of the Encodify platform.

As a category leader, you are faced with intense competition from other retailers, both online and offline, who are trying to capture a share of the market. This can lead to price wars, promotional campaigns, and other efforts to win customers.


Encodify creates the backbone of your organisation, providing you with an efficient solution to handle the many challenges you face. We help you empower your team while orchestrating all other internal stakeholders and bring overview and alignment to your organisation.
