If your organization is like most, pricing is a set of disparate activities carried out in different parts of the business. And in many businesses, each function – Finance, Marketing, Sales and Operations – works with a different set of data to make pricing decisions. Different functions also often define goals and reward performance using different metrics, which can be in conflict with each other.
Effective pricing management can help you increase profitability by improving the way you analyze, set and deliver prices, including enforcing pricing policies. And the benefits can be realized in good times and bad. The tools and discipline of pricing and profitability management can help a business address the immediate issues presented during economic instability, as well as help position the company for long-term profitable growth.
