The problem with maintaining your system with the do-it-yourself approach is your people already have full-time jobs. Sales people have to take care of customers. Pricing or purchasing departments are consumed just handling cost changes and special requests. As a result, pricing isn’t kept current. On average, 63% of distributor pricing records are outdated and counterproductive.
Don’t underestimate how quickly the market changes.
In competitive markets where salespeople lack guidance they will play it safe when comes time to price. If you don’t invest in ongoing pricing maintenance:
- Your pricing will soon become outdated
- Sales people will stop trusting your system
- Pricing utilization will go down
- Margin gain will quickly erode
