Optimize Price

Pricing Strategy

Optimal pricing is the number one lever for driving profitable growth. In fact, for an average S&P 500 company, a 1% increase in price results in an 8% increase in operating profit – which is 3.2x more effective than reducing cost and 2.2x more effective than growing volume.

Unfortunately, pricing is not a priority for most companies. In fact, 70% of companies spend 10 hours or less annually on strategic pricing, often due to a lack of pricing knowledge, overreliance on tools, business complexity, industry elasticity and more. As a result, most companies rely on cost-plus pricing or a pricing software with simplified pricing algorithms to get the job done.

Without an adequate pricing strategy, companies suffer from:

  • Non-optimal pricing based on cost or margin targets
  • Inability to pass price increases onto customers, leading to shrinking margins
  • Pricing structures that undercut the integrity of your brand and channel partners
  • Unsatisfied customers resulting in missed revenue opportunities
  • Sales teams spending more time on pricing than selling
