In 2003, when Navetti started its pioneering work in pricing and price optimization, most companies had an ad hoc approach to pricing. Even large blue-chip multinational companies had a fragmented pricing strategy, often based on local experts’ opinions about their respective markets or with “cost-plus” as the starting point for setting prices. Even though most companies have evolved and today are more professional in how they manage pricing, unless they follow a customer-centric approach most companies will still fall short in their price optimization. Price too high and you lose sales – and customers. Price too low and you give away your profits – and maybe also risk triggering a price war with your competitors. This is where Navetti’s pricing expertise comes into play.
The Navetti approach is called “Operational Pricing”, which generates sustainable incremental profits for their customers by both optimizing prices and creating internal efficiencies. It is based on three basic principles: 1) Understand the customer perceived value, 2) Monitor the competitive situation and 3) Adjust for local market conditions. Navetti uses its software, Navetti PricePoint™, and its consultancy division, Navetti Consult™ to help clients establish structured yet flexible pricing strategies that allow them to make highly informed business decisions instantly to manage their pricing strategy. The results follow fast: revenue improvements from applying Navetti’s operational pricing approach tend to be in the range of between 5% and 15%, and start to be visible in as little as a few months, sometimes weeks.
Navetti offers a unique combination of advanced price optimization software and consulting expertise. Navetti PricePoint™ is the acclaimed software suite, an essential tool for day-to-day price optimization across all aspects of pricing strategy. This is supported by the expertise of the consultants at Navetti Consult™ that help customers achieve increased profits faster through insightful value-based pricing strategies and rapid system deployment.
