PROS to Showcase Big Data Applications for Pricing Effectiveness at Professional Pricing Society Conference in Barcelona

HOUSTON & BARCELONA, Nov. 20, 2014 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced its participation in the Professional Pricing Society (PPS) 10th Annual European and Global Pricing Workshops and Conference. The event, which will be held at the Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel in Barcelona, is scheduled for Nov. 26-28. PROS will showcase the breadth of its product portfolio, including its enterprise pricing platform, and CPQ (configure-price-quote) and rebate solutions.

PPS conferences bring hands-on workshops and high-level speakers from the worlds of business and academia, providing a diverse environment for networking, training and reaching out to professionals in the pricing world.

“One of the great benefits of PPS events is the opportunity to connect and collaborate with our customers, partners and thought leaders who attend,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Patrick Schneidau. “Companies operate with a range of complexities, including volatility in raw materials and currency fluctuations, in markets that are globally competitive. To address that complexity, leading organizations recognize that pricing is a competitive advantage and the most strategic lever to help their sales teams outperform.” 

During the conference, PROS will share insights on how pricing leaders can take control with data-driven insights and automated price management.

PROS European Strategic Pricing Services Lead Mrinal (MG) Gurbaxani will hold a conference breakout in the Pricing Experts track titled “Measuring Price Performance in Your Organization” at 4:00 p.m. on Nov. 28. In the session, he will discuss the key principles for building a robust pricing performance management system; how to track and monitor pricing performance; and the KPIs used to measure pricing performance across various industries.
