PHASE 15: TOOLS, SYSTEMS, AND SOFTWARE

Choose appropriate price software to help execute your pricing strategy.

 

You have invested time in setting up your pricing strategy and process, now you need to ensure you have the infrastructure to support it. Pricing software can be a great benefit but will fail without a level of organizational readiness. Investing too early can hinder your pricing processes and be very costly. Also, software is not a substitute for a pricing strategy and will do little to fix broken processes. Think process first then software second. It is critical that before making an investment in software there has been sufficient analytical rigor to quantify the cost, benefit, and expected future state.
