What is Compas?

Plan, monitor and evaluate your marketing in one place. Compas is an integrated, cloud-based marketing management system, designed to support your marketing team in achieving your business goals. Budgeting, and monitoring performance against budget, are a breeze with Compas.


Compas gives your team a single place to set up your marketing plan. Sales and profit forecasts are generated automatically and shared throughout the company.


A sales feed allows users to track campaign performance, and update the plan as required. Compas keeps forecasts up to date throughout the process.


Armed with the results of marketing activities and their longer-term effects, your team can gain an in-depth understanding of how to deliver greater value.
