"Customer counts, basket size, units, sales, and margin dollars all far exceeded our expectations- in some cases 4 fold"

With the help of our partner, Revionics, higher margins and sales are achievable while keeping customer loyalty.

Chemical Manufacturing



You face constant pressure on margins. In both rising and falling markets, relentless forces are at work that require continued vigilance if you are to maintain company profitability. Volatile costs, fluctuations in customer demand, and competitor actions can make it nearly impossible to understand how individual customers, products, or geographical regions contribute to, or detract from, your profitability.

Pricing Challenges
In a pressure-cooker situation like this, sound pricing decisions are critical. You have little time, however, to obtain
and analyze relevant data, such as the costs of feedstock and transportation, or to identify market trends. Most likely, the information you use to set prices comes from multiple systems and manual processes—too fragmented and out-of-date to help you set the right price for each segment and customer.

OPRE Solution for Chemical Manufacturing
OPRE integrates all the information you need to make profitable decisions in real time. For example, you can quickly spot, and stop, destructive trends, like unwarranted discounting, that lead to price erosion. You use analytical tools to see such root causes of poor performance as high costs-to-serve associated with order fulfilment. Finally, OPRE gives your sales reps price guidance, targeted to the customer and segment that allows them to quote and negotiate profitable deals with confidence.
Industrial Manufacturing



To succeed in a complex and volatile marketplace, industrial manufacturers are pressured to put more emphasis on pricing as a catalyst for growth. One pricing tool that makes a valuable lever is the ability to customize pricing strategies by business unit, sales channel, product group and customer group, but this requires complex data analysis and quick decisions. With pricing data distributed all around an organization, it’s a challenge to perform a thorough analysis in a timely manner.

OPRE Solution for Industrial Manufacturing
With an unparalleled ability to track customer attributes like performance and willingness to pay, OPRE gives industrial manufacturers much better insight in how best to pass along costs, effectively manage customer programs, and identify the value of products to different customers, across different sales channels.
Manufacturing



With very successful implementations in Petroleum, Chemical, and other manufacturing customers through our partner, PROS, OPRE Consulting can help you achieve pricing excellence in this very challenging industry.

In spite of its diversity, the manufacturing industry has a common set of challenges, including globalization, increasing automation, and changing regulations. These issues make it difficult for manufacturers to maintain margins and remain competitive in the marketplace.

With its broad range of manufacturing customers, OPRE has developed an understanding of the issues that must be addressed to achieve pricing excellence through margin optimization in manufacturing and its sub-verticals.
Distribution



Distributors often battle the low margins associated with eroding prices because they rely on traditional pricing practices that can mask problems—like unnecessary discounting and quoting below breakeven prices. Other issues—freight cost increases, fill rates, and the challenges of working with overseas manufacturers—add another level of complexity.

Pricing is one of the most powerful levers of business and financial performance for distributors. OPRE margin optimization software products use this lever to drive the highest possible ROI and enable distributors to achieve pricing excellence.
