Twas the night before NRF, when all through the Center

Not a creature was stirring, not one single vendor 

The booths were all placed on the showfloor with care

I’m excited to be on what’s shaping up to be a very interesting panel this year at NRF - The Right Price at the Right Time: Mobile Price Management and Compliance (see details at the end of this blog).

I’m exploring the evolution of pricing toward real-time in this increasingly fast-paced dynamic retail environment. Dynamic Pricing implies the ability to monitor and update prices across all channels – but it demands highly focused, strategic execution to avoid a blind race to the bottom. So the challenge is – how do we help retailers ensure that they have the right price at the right time?

In this era of price transparency, you would think that it’s easy enough for a retailer to convey its price image to potential customers. After all, price image is a reflection of a store’s average price level so managing the price also manages the price image – right? Like so many things in life, it turns out that it’s not quite so simple. In our blog post, 7 Facts Every Retailer Needs to Know About Price Image, which was recently featured by in the Furniture News January Issue, we discuss the factors that influence the retailer’s price image.

The democratization of data has caused a dramatic shift in power from the retailer to the consumer.  2016 must be the year that retailers restore balance.
