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

HOUSTON & LAS VEGAS, Oct. 16, 2014 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced its participation in the Professional Pricing Society (PPS) 25th Annual Fall Workshops and Conference at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas Hotel. During the event from Oct. 21-24, 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.

“The PPS events provide valuable opportunities for PROS to meet with customers, partners and thought leaders who attend,” said PROS Chief Operating Officer Blair Crump. “Companies operate with a range of complexities, including volatility in raw materials and currency fluctuations, in markets that are globally competitive. Leading organizations realize pricing is a competitive advantage and the most strategic lever to help their sales teams outperform.” 

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

  • PROS Chief Visionary Officer Craig Zawada will deliver a keynote address titled “Why Pricers Hold the Key to Growing Sales” from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Oct. 23. The presentation will cover how pricers can take a leading role in driving sales growth by helping sales teams take advantage of key growth levers.

  • PROS Senior Vice President of Products Oscar Moreno will lead a breakout session titled “Real-Time Price Capabilities: The Key to Achieving Business Agility” from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on Oct. 24. In the breakout, he will discuss how real-time pricing offers a viable way to execute the best pricing strategy today; how modeling and simulation can be used to measure impact; and why obvious attributes don’t always provide true insight into customer buying behavior.
