MRM Explained

MRM Definition

“MRM is an holistic system, capable of serving the whole of the Marketing Enterprise (including both internal and external Agencies), which manages all aspects of Brand Management and the associated production of Marketing Collateral.

The system will specifically provide functionality managing:

1.the Planning and Budget processes;

2. Process Management, allowing the appropriate people to update progress and to view the planned collateral.

3. approval of collateral, using electronic transmission of images and comments complying with the defined management hierarchy.

4. an integrated DAM storing all multimedia collateral, and associated documentation providing the required level of functionality to promote and support the re-use of existing collateral. 

5. Competitive Procurement to reduce costs and ensure consistent quality

6. the print and delivery functions .

7. comprehensive, self–selection reporting on all aspects of the services managed, including marketing efficiency, and the basis for marketing effectiveness.”.
