Manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler recently interviewed pricing experts Dallas Crawford and Dan Barrett of QueBIT. According to Crawford and Barrett, price alignment reveals opportunities for manufacturers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more in Automation.com here.
Crawford shared that price alignment with data analytics can be done readily in real-time. The ability to concentrate on high and low volumes that fall outside a normal distribution of trend or seasonality can inform where margin opportunities exist. This is particularly valuable during the pandemic where buying patterns are in greater flux. Higher volume provides opportunities to adjust prices based on demand or to capture market share. Lower volume provides opportunities to analyze pricing, determining if market share is being lost or if the product’s lifecycle is near its end.
Barrett noted the best method to analyze and optimize customer pricing is to model the data and ensure that the analytics platform supports it at a very discrete level. Customer data by location or product SKUs allow for optimal delivery of unique pricing. Understanding and forecasting the customers’ pricing elasticity is key to determining the optimal price.
