Connect the Dots to
Reach Your Full Potential
A Value Trifecta.
It Just Makes Sense
Happier Customers and More Profitability
[Yes, it can happen.]
You can forecast inventory, and you can analyze prices all day long. But until the two are connected, you are limiting your full potential. Get unstuck. Establishing a more holistic and strategic use of the inventory investment through Planning + Pricing together unleashes positive results for both your customers and your bottom line.
Get a handle on your dynamic customers’ needs by using integrated pricing methods to shape the planning horizon for your product mix. Quickly understand how lead times, service levels, locations for logistical costs, re-order points, product lifecycles and seasonality factors shape inventory – and its impact on Pricing.
Pricing Optimization Management
Take advantage of price sensitivity through AI and Advanced Analytics. Identify threats and opportunities through competitive price analysis. Easily determine prices and right-size stock levels across huge assortments, optimizing revenue streams and slashing inventory carrying costs.
Optimize S&OP Execution Across All Channels

Connect enterprise data to fully align execution from the supply side to sales and operations. Minimize customer order backlogs and expedited replenishment orders. Leverage price sensitivity with inventory stocking and service levels by location/channel. And incorporate pricing updates from competitors to grow market share.
Balance Pricing and Profits
Proactively use customer segments, product segments, price and customer sensitivity, locations, channel and seasonality to set prices and grow sales, revenue and margins. Synchronize your inventory strategies with Pricing Optimization to maximize profits over the entire planning horizon. For ultimate revenue management harmony.
