By Business Wire News


PROS® (NYSE: PRO), the revenue and profit realization company, today announced its participation for the fourth consecutive year in the Manufacturing Pricing Excellence conference. The event, which attracts some of Europe’s preeminent thought leaders, is scheduled for May 18-20 at the Andels Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic.

Facing digital and disruptive competition, the manufacturing industry is redefining the way it does business. At the conference, speakers will address moves from traditional product-oriented models to new service-centric organizations that deliver valuable outcomes.

PROS customer Rémi Gicquel, Pricing Director for the Enterprise Group at HP Enterprise EMEA, will be one of the featured speakers. Gicquel will discuss his company’s pricing transformation and how an innovative approach, combined with data science-driven technologies, has enabled HPE to become a market leader recognized by both customers and partners. He will introduce how HPE used its own data and PROS solutions to generate meaningful revenue growth.

PROS Strategic Consulting Director Alex Smith will also deliver an address further exploring the successful techniques and solutions used at HPE that are essential for helping companies realize their revenue and profit potential. His delivery – How to Successfully Execute a Pricing Optimization Transformation – will cover three specific practice areas:

  • How to set accurate, targeted pricing or discount guidelines based on what the customer is willing to pay for each product on each deal.
  • How to effectively deliver guidelines to sales, the deal desk or channel partners.
  • How to drive adoption of pricing and discounting guidelines to ensure sales teams meet quota targets.

“The Manufacturing Pricing Excellence Conference is one of the premiere European forums for manufacturing professionals focused on pricing that brings together a number of our partners and customers,” said PROS CMO Patrick Schneidau. “Manufacturers compete in global markets where local players can have a disruptive impact. Our cloud-based solutions for pricing and selling are helping PROS manufacturing customers redefine their go-to-market strategies using data science-driven prescriptive analytics and pricing guidance that enables them to win. Most importantly, we’re helping them realize their revenue and profit potential.”
