PROS Selected As Founding Member Of New European Pricing Platform Chapter

PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a world leader in pricing and revenue management software, today announced the company has been selected by the European Pricing Platform (EPP) as a founding member of the first EPP chapter serving Germany, Austria and Switzerland. By developing a local chapter for German-speaking countries, EPP aims to create close contacts with pricing practitioners and partners, while increasing an in-depth understanding of B2B and B2C challenges in today’s volatile market environment.

EPP has voted Jochen Werner, PROS regional vice president of sales for Central and Southern Europe, as the latest nominee to the local chapter’s leadership board of experienced business experts. Werner joins the board, along with executives from TUI Germany, the University of Osnabrück, and the University of St. Gallen.

“Jochen Werner brings a profound knowledge of how big data technologies can improve a company’s pricing and sales performance, a unique point of view that will benefit members of the EPP,” said EPP President Pol Vanaerde. “All of the chapter’s board members bring valuable experience and insights. We are set for a dynamic start in the highly competitive markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”

“During the past year, I have seen a sharp increase in European companies using their big data to advance sales effectiveness,” added Werner. “Many executives are also seeking a better way to overcome the margin pressures that come from market volatility. This is where EPP’s interactive approach and deep understanding of business opportunities and challenges can really help to provide best practices and scenario based consultancy.”

EPP German Event

The EPP is a non-profit organization that informs decision makers across Europe about the best practices, methodologies and technology solutions necessary to support successful pricing management implementations. In order to build a strong network of pricing professionals, the local chapter will run a series of exclusive events in Germany. Based on local market research, the new chapter will identify unique pricing opportunities in the region. The first Pricing Workshop on Pricing Innovation and Methods will take place at Fleming’s Hotel Frankfurt on Thursday, 18 th of October, 2012.
