PROS to Showcase Pricing and Sales Effectiveness Solutions at Spare Parts Business Platform 2015

HOUSTON & LONDON, Feb. 3, 2015 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced its sponsorship of the Spare Parts Business Platform 2015. The conference, scheduled for February 4-5, will be held at the Scandic Infra City Hotel in Stockholm.

PROS head of Automotive and Spare Parts Industry Marketing Sean Duclaux will deliver a presentation at 11:30 a.m. on February 5. Titled “Driving Greater Profitability Through the Spare Parts Value Chain,” the presentation will showcase the power of using data to improve profitability in the manufacturing and spare parts industry.

Spare Parts Business Platform 2015 provides attendees with opportunities to hear about the optimization of spare parts operations, service transformation initiatives, and how spare parts management leads to a successful aftermarket strategy.

“Companies in the spare parts industry are looking for strategies to help them increase their pricing and sales effectiveness and outperform in an ever-changing and competitive environment,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Patrick Schneidau. “Spare parts are traditionally the most profitable side of the business and typically receive far less attention from equipment manufacturers than production. By analyzing spare parts data, companies can gain valuable insight on how to price products and deliver a better customer experience. We look forward to sharing best practices based on PROS industry experience.”

Duclaux will also participate in the Executive Circles roundtable discussions at 2:00 p.m. on February 5. In the roundtables, participants discuss new perspectives and ideas around a specific topic, allowing them to share experiences in a more intimate setting. Duclaux will share insights on using prescriptive and predictive analytics to help businesses outperform in the global spare parts industry.
