Business Case

Expertise: what do we deliver?

Business Case 1

Top Line Optimization

Our client, a market leader in the retail sector wanted to improve its current elasticity models in order to fine-tune its pricing strategy under adverse conditions.

We implemented a new methodology, challenging internal practices, which allowed combining research driven adoption scenario with transactional data for superior business relevance. The adoption scenarios give us the needed “orthogonal” inputs and extra data points, which are not present in ticket data. The triangulation with transactions is a mandatory step to provide a stochastic optimization model that influences actual business result. After a 3-month test & control in one geography, the Board validated results: +8% top line improvement, +4% driven by price variance.

Business Case 2

Segmented Price Realization

Our client, a market leader in manufacturing, was looking for support in implementing its strategic plan for 2020 centered around profitable growth.

After an extensive audit and the co-creation of a roadmap, we identified several quick wins and executed a pilot in one major country to capture first tangible impacts. A custom pricing dashboard has been developed, providing superior pricing visibility and nudge salesforce towards targeted net price realization. On top of the economic results resulting from an improved pocket price realization, the project allowed to fine-tune and validate the data architecture, achieve a single point of truth in terms of gross margin construction, and democratize the usage of data in sales management.

Business Case 3

Improved pricing power

Our client, a global leader in medical devices, was redefining its EMEA pricing strategy in order to respond to an increased volatility. We helped delivering a data-driven methodology and tools to increase their Pricing Power in the Region. As our client had already implemented a major pricing software, we focused the project on delivering a “last mile” pricing tool that would integrate data outside the current system, and on streamlining the analysis of complex pricing data for business users among other capabilities.

We defined and forecasted pricing power scenarios, supported by the tool, to make the invisible visible for the sales reps and empower them with an agile methodology that gives them a new edge over competition and adverse market conditions.
