Execution, Implementation, and Integration

Great pricing strategies are useless without execution, and execution is meaningless without results. All too often organizations invest time, data, and assets to develop sound pricing strategies that never make it to the customer. Unfortunately, this lack of pricing conversion leads to organizations realizing poor financial results and stalling on building pricing capabilities and stalling on building pricing capabilities.

 

Key reasons pricing strategies do not get implemented:

1.     Business Risk: Perceived risk of losing the customer cause the organization to back-pedal.

2.     Trust Me:  Basing decisions on institutional knowledge over data.

3.     The Past: Tried pricing initiatives with customers before and was rejected or unsuccessful and team apprehensive to try it again.

4.     Hands are Tied: Contractual or customer requirements that restrict optimized pricing strategies from getting implemented.

5.     Data Integrity: Issues with the data compromise the integrity of the pricing strategy optimized.

 

How Revenue Management Labs helps you overcome pricing strategy execution issues:

1.     Business Risk: Focus on the customer value being provided versus the competition and assess whether the proposed pricing strategy will truly put the customer at risk.

2.     Trust Me:  Build a culture of data-driven decision-making.

3.     The Past: Identify what has changed from the past that will increase the team’s probability of the pricing strategies’ success.

4.     Hands are Tied: Understand the nature of customer pricing obligations (contractual vs. sales commitments) and develop customer-level phased implementation plans.

5.     Data Integrity: Define the breakeven point and the level of tolerance allowed for errors in the pricing strategy to gauge risk.
