In order to maximise your profits and stay ahead of the competition, you have to price at the absolute optimum level. What your business needs is an accurate price management system and the modern, accurate and most efficient solution to all your pricing demands is to invest in a price management software solution.
The fastest and most effective way for a company to realise its maximum profit is to get its pricing right. The right price can boost profits far quicker than increasing sales volume; the wrong price can shrink profits just as quickly.
Yield management is the process of understanding, anticipating, and influencing consumer behaviour to maximize yield or profits from a fixed, 'perishable' resource, such as hotel rooms, tables in restaurants, theatre tickets, airline seats, media, telecommunications and energy, to name but a few.

Pricing is the reflection of everything you do as a business, from your product development all the way down to a link to your website. Nothing else defines your business and its products more.
Are you still using spreadsheets to manage your prices? If that's the case, the future profitability of your business could be in jeopardy because relying on this method for all your pricing requirements has definitely had its day

Costs (direct or indirect) are the expenses that a business incurs in bringing a product or service to market. The selling price is the amount a customer pays for that product or service. The difference between the price that is paid and the cost that is incurred is the profit the business makes when the item sells. If a customer pays £10 for an item that costs the company £5 to produce and sell, the company makes a £5 profit.
