Case 1: From fixed to success based
Situation & Challenge Solution
Project Example:
B2B Marketplace
Global online platform to connect buyers and
suppliers, secure invoice and payment capabilities,
and software (buyers only)
Price model:
 Membership model for buyers
 Flat fee per relationship for suppliers with
qualifying activity level
Challenges:
 Limited number of buyers
 No monetisation of network growth
 Huge tail of small customers
 One size fits all pricing created barrier to
adoption by small customers

Case 2: From usage based to two-part tariff
Situation & Challenge Solution
Project Example:
Rail operator
Long-haul passenger transport, regional passenger
transport
Price model:
 “Pay-as-you-go” for more than 100 years
 Ticket price based on distance traveled
Challenges:
 Increasing competition from low-cost
airlines and private cars
 Decrease in passenger numbers and
revenue More than 4m Bahncards sold
Increase in passenger volume
Revenue impact EUR 100m p.a.

Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Case 3: From fixed to customer value based
Situation & Challenge Solution
Manufacturer of truck tires developed innovative new
tire that has a 20% higher durability
Price model:
 Pay per tire
 Discount for higher volumes of tires
Challenges:
 Intense price competition across channels
 No possibility to charge higher price for
new, more valuable tire
 New value proposition: Solution
provider:
"Keep your truck rolling"
 New model:
Price/km - trucker's cost aligned with
revenue basis
 New pricing perspective: Focus on
TCO rather than unit price
 Monetisation of innovation:
"Automatically" higher price for better
value (duration)
Project Example:
Tire manufacturer

Simon-Kucher approach step 1: Assess customer value
perception
Peter F. Drucker
"Customers don't buy products,
they buy the benefits that these
products and their suppliers offer
them."

Optimal price structure within
one product category based on

Packaging cannot be that hard – can it?
14
Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Bad example: Packaging is more than A+B – 15%
 This "trial" cost a high two-digit million
figure
 Manager at Rogers: "This was our first
attempt. We just wanted to try out
packaging. Meanwhile, we do a better
job."
 Conclusion: Poor packaging destroys
value
15
Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Bad example: There should be a package portfolio not an all-
in
16
Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Bad example: Packages need to differentiate on relevant
features

Should these features be
differentiated across
packages?

Simon-Kucher approach step 1:
Define packaging strategy
Degree of complexity (# of offers)Simple Complex
 Definition:
One offer with all
products & features
included
 Examples:
Workday HCM
 Definition:
Packages which
combine a variety
of product
categories
 Examples:
Fortknox
 Definition:
A variety of packages
with increasingly
more feature
functionality
 Examples:
Xero
 Definition:
A variety of
packages with
implementation
complexity
limitations
 Examples:
US Sage

Simon-Kucher approach step 2:
Define package contents
... selected
"leader" products
High value products / features that
most customers want to or "must"
buy.
Coke & Fries
... some "filler"
product(s)
Medium value products / features
that most customers consider
"nice to have."
Coffee
... NO "killer"
product(s)
Products which either have
"own" willingness-to pay-or no

Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Simon-Kucher step 4:
Develop package portfolio and pricing
Good-better-best: Role based packages:
 Packages with increasingly more feature
functionality
 Differentiation across customers based on value
and willingness-to-pay
 Need for behavioural tactics to steer choice
 Packages that are targeted at specific types
of users
 Clear segments or use-cases drive package
choice
 Use cases don’t change over time (no upsell
path)
23
Zuora presentation 2015 - Simon-Kucher
Example impact of packaging optimization
Source: Simon-Kucher project example
Approach
 Research showed that the entry
package met large percentage of
customers’ needs
 As a result, we reduced value of
entry package to better align with
existing price point
 New features were added and
existing features shifted to
premium tiers to justify higher
prices
