As a retailer, the pricing lifecycle – setting the right price for your products – is critical to your business. Yet most pricing decisions require a trade-off between margin and price perception.

Rizing’s LifeCycle Pricing (LCP) tool allows merchants to minimize those trade-offs when making pricing decisions.

A Hypothetical Retail Pricing Challenge

Consider Suzanna, who sets her company’s prices for her category. Her first challenge is accumulating the data needed to make crucial pricing decisions.

Once Suzanna makes those decisions, it takes too many steps to execute the pricing changes at the right time in every store.

What if Suzanna had a tool that could easily integrate into her SAP environment and read SAP’s:

  • Master data
  • Transaction log
  • Price
  • Cost
  • Inventory
  • Order data
  • Competitor information

She could consolidate all those data points in a simple and user-friendly interface. This integrated toolset would allow Suzanna to quickly review data, set pricing plans, execute price changes, and evaluate the impact on business performance.

Make Faster and More Accurate Pricing Decisions

Analyzing pricing-relevant data like Suzanna’s is what Rizing’s LifeCycle Pricing (LCP) does for retailers. The software-as-a-service (SaaS), enhanced cloud-based toolset with real time analytics offers key benefits to retailers:

  • Faster decision making
  • Increased achievement of sales goals

A Rules-Based Engine Makes Suggestions

LCP plugs into your SAP environment and uses a rules-based pricing engine to suggest price changes. This allows Suzanna to maintain cost with pre-configured and custom guidelines. She can enforce her company’s value strategies across all products, locations, and channels.

Suzanna not only saves time but benefits from accurate pricing and competitor data.
