Companies can use pricing to reflect the value of a service to a market. But when you connect pricing to situational demand, companies  can create increased value and competitive differentiation. 

 

This is done using data from IoT sensors or operational systems that can provide insights into usage, capacity, availability of assets or customer behavior, which can then be used to guide a customer’s behavior through pricing incentives.

Optimized Costing

Companies who acquire commodity products or services from suppliers typically have multiple suppliers to reduce risk and desire to acquire at the lowest price. Optimized costing allows companies to acquire products and services at the most optimized price and terms.  For example manufacturers and distributors are looking for the lowest price and best terms from amongst their common parts suppliers.

Challenge

Suppliers pricing, terms and deliveries are frequently changing, moreover supply chain shocks and inflation can cause havoc to costs and deliveries. Pricing and terms changes make it difficult to track lowest pricing. For example Manufacturing or distributors who acquire commoditized parts from multiple suppliers at terms and at the lowest price to ensure consistent profitability.
