  4. 4. Increase Profits With Price Management Service parts pricing is the new profit lever. Today, most companies understand that a single cost-plus approach is not sufficient for the spare parts business. A pricing strategy combining cost-plus, reference, kit, value-based and market-based pricing leads to margin increases. A combined strategy also helps make prices more transparent to the customer. The introduction of an advanced pricing tool helps organizations improve their pricing processes, optimize prices, and ultimately drive service parts revenues up by 5 percent, while driving gross profits by 7 percent! With Syncron Global Price Management, you can: Improve Service. Reduce Stock. Grow Profit. Hitachi Optimizes Market Pricing to Boost Margins by Billions Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM) prices more than 1,000,000 parts with 24,000 new parts introduced annually.

HCM selected Syncron Global Price Management to optimize its pricing through science-based segmentation, pricing guidance, and advanced analytics. The solution was implemented in a timely manner and on budget, with no significant customization or add-on development required. The solution provided HCM with one central system, consolidating all pricing processes and providing global price visibility across the complex supply chain. With Syncron Global Price Management, HCM has gained a better understanding of the details behind pricing for each part number, allowing them to develop strategies for market- leading pricing.

  5. 5. When growing margins is the goal, value-based pricing is often your most powerful tool. Value-based pricing sets price on the perceived benefit to the customer rather than on the cost of the product or historical price. Where it is successfully used, value-based pricing can improve profits without impacting sales volume. Syncron helps you determine when to use value-based pricing and what the customer is willing to pay. In addition our software allows you to identify items, like proprietary or patented items, that can be priced more aggressively. Price Management helps the analyst evaluate multiple price strategies – cost-plus, competitor prices, and value-based. Syncron supports modeling, simulation, and strategic analysis so you can evaluate your business performance. Price Management’s advanced graphical interface allows you to: Service Parts Pricing: The New Profit Lever Spot and correct inconsistent pricing across product lines, customers, and sales channels Analyze price levels to identify underperforming product segments, customers, or markets Simulate the business impact of changes based on price elasticity Manage and model volume and trade discounts Every second company is engaged in a price war.
