Recent analyst research shows that price dominates a shopper’s purchasing decision and the potential for getting the price wrong has grown exponentially as retailers continue to increase the number of price changes without a clear strategy or understanding of the impact. This session will discuss how pricing across the product lifecycle has moved from an art to a science through the use of life cycle price optimization. DIXY will share their experiences with price optimization and the benefits of taking a data-driven, shopper-centric approach to pricing strategies and tactics. To register, click here
