SESSION ABSTRACT: Today’s retailers are battling intense competitive pressures as channel lines blur and more – informed and technology-savvy shoppers demand better competitive prices. For retailers to find success in today’s price transparent world, they need to replace gut-feel pricing with optimization technologies that enable the execution of shopper-centric pricing strategies and tactics across the life of a product – every day price, promotion and markdown – tailored to a retailer’s channels. This session will discuss the basics of demand-based science – price elasticity and item/store level demand modeling, how optimization technology integrates science, business rules and constraints and business and financial strategies to derive price, promotion and markdown recommendations that drive to a retailer’s strategic and financial objectives and the typical financial benefits that are achieved.
