The reason why many companies fail to capture superior profitability, even after buying price management software and implementing tight pricing over 12 months, is because they fail to implement a value-based pricing strategy that centers on customer value.

To be successful a value-based pricing strategy must include the following five components:

  • Value Creation: Are you developing products with benefits that align with what customers are willing to pay for?
  • Value Communication: Are you communicating how your differentiating features and services impact your customer’s bottom line?
  • Price Structure: Do you have a way of charging customers that tracks the value you deliver across customers and applications?
  • Pricing Policy: Do your discounting policies tell your customer that price is determined by value, rather than aggressive negotiation?
  • Price Management: Are you ensuring that pricing is implemented as intended, and that price level changes reflect true market conditions?

By combining the activates using a value-based pricing strategy, enterprises increase the potential for profitable pricing that price management enables them to realize.
