PROS to Showcase Big Data Applications at Aftermarket Business Platform 2012

HOUSTON and LONDON, October 16, 2012 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a world leader in pricing and revenue management software, today announced its sponsorship of the Aftermarket Business Platform 2012. Scheduled for Oct. 24-26 in Copenhagen at the Hotel Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, the conference will highlight how big data applications for sales and pricing effectiveness can address the challenges that exist for today’s aftermarket parts companies.

A PROS global survey of more than 100 service parts executives, conducted mid-year, illuminates the strategic business challenges faced by these organisations. More than 65% of the participants identified the inability to leverage, acquire and integrate big data as their most significant business challenge. At the conference, PROS Service Parts Industry Marketing Manager Sean Duclaux will address how to overcome these issues in a presentation titled “Pricing to Outperform: A Better Than ‘Average’ Strategy for the Service Parts Industry.”

Rob Glenn, PROS General Manager EMEA commented, “Organisations that manufacture and supply service parts are looking for new opportunities to increase their sales effectiveness in managing customer, product, transaction and cost data. They’re also evaluating new ways to improve their business operations in key areas, from promotions and rebates, to analysing pricing changes and addressing global competition. Based on our years of industry experience, we help customers increase their odds of winning, using insights from big data at the point of negotiation, to capture the value they deserve for the products and services.”
