"We have worked with Active for over a decade. Throughout that time they have been able to work seamlessly within our existing remarketing structure as well as allowing Young’s to pay part cash part trade in facilitating over £10m of barterable media. By paying us in a multiple of Trade Credits for our excess stock we have been able to drive greater efficiencies in our media buying, while at the same time provide cost savings to other areas of the business. This established partnership has allowed us to work with a great team that has consistently provided sustainable commercial solutions, making a significant contribution to our business."
“Werner & Mertz has been working very successfully with Active International since 2003 and has implemented a major range of corporate trade solutions over the past 16 years. For about five years, we and our partner have also been active in strategically relevant international markets.”
“Active International works with Perrigo since 2015 providing us with solutions for the management of our unsold inventories. On the one hand, Active has allowed us to restore the value of our inventories in books by paying us for them up to 3 times the liquidation value that we would obtain if we sold them through our traditional channels.
Active has demonstrated during these years commitment and seriousness in respecting the restrictions of remarketing and ensuring the traceability of our inventories always protecting our brand during the process. On the other hand, Active has been responsible for the purchase of part of our media campaigns working hand in hand with our agency allowing us, a considerable saving of cash while the strategy and planning of the campaign have always been respected. They have met Perrigo’s expectations.”
"The team at Active really took the time to understand our business and worked to develop a sales model that would increase profit as well as streamline our internal processes. Their level of dedication and professionalism, and of course the results to our business, mean that I have no hesitation in recommending Active International.”
“We’re pleased with the relationship with Active International. What started out as a creative solution to an inventory problem has grown into a multi-year media buying relationship. The Active team has added value to our media buys and to our business”
“The Active team provided a unique opportunity for our business to manage excess stock while providing a value outside of traditional sales. In an aggressive promotional environment, it allowed us to continue long term brand support via the trade credit offer whilst also countering a challenging stock problem and opening the door for a new found value to the product. The team were proactive, supportive and easy to work with both at the strategic and day to day level. They worked hard to be a seamless connection between us and our media team”
“For the past five years I’ve worked with Active’s Retail Marketing team for sourcing and procuring retail fixtures supporting Sharp AQUOS LED TVs as well as our appliance products. Active has been a great partner. They’ve introduced us to some best-in-class suppliers and the fact that we’ve been able to apply trade has allowed Sharp to save considerable dollars while working with premium suppliers. I view Active as an extended part of the team”
“At Federópticos we have been working according to the principles that inspired the foundation of the Group for more than 25 years: a high level of qualification, innovation as a complement to professionalism and providing confidence to our clients. One of the keys to success is to consider our key suppliers as "partners" in the development of our activity. Thus, Active International has understood the needs of our business and provides continuous value to the operations of Federópticos, maintaining the level of flexibility and agility that we need to adapt its services to an environment as changing and unique as that of our Cooperative, with the challenges that entails.
Being able to rely on Active to manage our inventory surpluses, on the one hand, allows us not only to restore the expected value of these inventories in our books, but also to reduce operational expenses that would detract from our income statement. When it comes to the execution and management of Federópticos advertising campaigns, Active has always respected our planning and its team has been proactive in proposing the most appropriate solutions for each region and target. Thanks to the fact that they have managed to internalize our objectives, we work with a valuable ally to optimize our media investments.”
“Magnify media is proud to work in partnership with Active International and are delighted with their innovative approach to meet with their ever-growing portfolio. Their willingness to be flexible and transparent with client liaising has resulted in sales and a previously untapped new customer base for Magnify Media. The relationship continues to grow, develop and blossom and we look forward to working closely with them for the foreseeable future”
"We've worked with Active International for just over three years now. We barter our event costs in exchange for flights. They are a delight to work with and their account management is prompt and nothing really is much trouble. They have helped us source venues across Europe and negotiated costs on our behalf. They have a quick turnaround for payments of services which means that event last minute event changes can be accounted for. I'm loath to recommend them as we'd like to keep them all to ourselves"
