Switch™ by SPARXiQ

Optimize pricing on your non-core items

SPARXiQ has discovered, from years of studying distributor transaction data, that companies actually lose money on a surprising amount of low-demand products. The reason? Traditional pricing methods don’t account for cost to serve variances specific to certain long-tail, ancillary items. When these items are priced, marked up, or discounted the same way that competitive, high-volume products are, they are much less profitable, and often unprofitable altogether.

For many companies, this is a missed opportunity. These profit-draining products are almost always items that are insensitive to price increases and can sell just as well with small amounts of added margin.

Switch™ by SPARXiQ uses proprietary approaches to quickly and easily identify and correct pricing on these low-sensitivity, high cost-to-serve items that are cutting into your profits. 

Do you know your customers' price sensitivity for each of your unique SKUs?
Do you factor that into your pricing?

Determining True Price Sensitivity

What makes Switch™ so powerful is our ability to quickly and accurately evaluate each item’s true price sensitivity. Where many companies focus mostly on volume and velocity of sales, SPARXiQ provides a proprietary statistical evaluation that includes twelve dimensions of price sensitivity. The result? Sensitivity ratings account for the subtle nuances in your transaction data and reflect the true sensitivity of each individual item.

Focus on the Non-Core

Price optimization projects occasionally encounter resistance from customers or the sales team when core items are increased. For this reason, Switch™ only focuses on the non-core items from the product families that are the least sensitive to the customers. Because of this careful approach, our clients who use Switch™ rarely encounter any resistance from the sales team or customers.

The fact is, many companies can realize significant profit improvement by just addressing the non-core items Switch™ targets.
