“Bloom & Wild have been working with Active since 2017 when we were still transitioning from a seed to a venture-sized business. It was Active’s entrepreneurial spirit that drew us to the business, but the key for us was seeing how much value the company's creative solutions brought to its partners.
Over the past four years, we've been fortunate to see considerable growth at Bloom & Wild, which I'm delighted to say mirrors our evolving partnership with Active. We can directly attribute a portion of our YOY sales increase to the work we've done with Active, and in turn, we've been able to further invest in our brand and top up our media spend across critical periods in the year.
We look forward to continuing our work with Active and embracing, when possible, any new opportunities that their innovative team can bring our way!”
“I have been working with Active International for over 6 years most recently in my role as CMO of Dreams and previously at Domino’s Pizza and House of Fraser. Partnering with Active has proven to be an effective way of driving value for my business either by incrementing the marketing budget or generating additional sales from the media spend we place. All this is achieved in conjunction with my media agency and without changing any of our current planning processes. I would not hesitate to recommend Active to any of my contacts”
"Active International is a valued business partner to Kia and has helped drive incremental value to our business since the start of 2019. By working seamlessly with our media agency, Active have been able to maximise the value delivered across nearly £5m in barterable media to date. The level of communication, collaboration and support from the Active team is strong and makes them a very easy partner to work with. We have established a mutually beneficial partnership and I look forward to continuing this in the future”
"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."
“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.”
