Why should you consider transforming your
pricing and selling practices?
A B2C-like buyer experience
Real-time dynamic pricing
Leverage AI and machine learning (ML) to calculate, update, and manage price lists for up to thousands of SKUs. Put your most profitable price forward and automatically adjust to real-time inventory counts, fuel costs, and other external factors that can chip away at margins.
Streamlined end-to-end selling processes
Get quotes out the door quickly with automated quoting, agreements, and contracting. Send opportunity insights to sales reps with AI-powered pricing guidance and reduce sales cycles with preapproved prices.
Reduced margin leakage
Keep tabs on fluctuating materials costs, eliminate overdiscounting, introduce new revenue streams, and maintain competitive market pricing to improve win rates and grow profits.
The link between technology and profits
In distribution, sales processes have been slow to adapt to digital transformation. The result is razor-thin margins, missed revenue opportunities, long quote turnarounds, and an inability to move with a consistently fluctuating market.
By 2024, 35% of businesses that build innovative algorithms to glean intelligence from unique data sets will deliver successful, new product offerings and pricing models, and tap new customer segments.1

OUTCOMES | Customer ROI Study
Yet another software vendor telling you how they will deliver ROI so you can make a business case to your CFO … or is it?
Software vendors love to make ROI claims. But CFOs (and many other buyers) have become skeptical.
Well, here we go — making our own ROI claims. But before you roll your eyes, give us a chance to tell you why you should pay attention to this one. First of all, we’re Texans, and if you know anything about the Lone Star state, you should know that we don’t like people who are “all hat and no cattle.” In Texas, your word is your bond, and whether you like it or not, you’re always going to hear the truth from us.
Secondly, these aren’t our numbers. We went to 131 of our customers and asked them to share the numbers that they are using internally to report on the effectiveness of the PROS Profit & Revenue Optimization Platform. They submitted more than 400 data files to us, and we put team of data scientists to work to make sure it was as clean and truthful as possible — eliminating duplicates, unnecessary fields, and any outliers.
The results are pretty amazing. It’s our way of saying, “Hey, we’re here for you. And we’re darn good at what we do.”
