Product Pricing is one of the most difficult decisions retailers and brands make on a daily basis. They ask themselves, “What are our customers willing to pay? Are we leaving money on the table, or is this a markdown waiting to happen?” Thankfully, retailers and brands do not need to guess anymore.
First Insight’s InsightSuite uses Predictive Analytics and the Voice of the Customer to forecast how a product should be priced—even without any sales history—for effective retail price optimization.
Pricing Winning Products
First Insight’s platform collects customer feedback on new product designs through social, email, and third-party panels to gather a statistically significant sample size. Our Platform then analyzes the responses—forecasting the outcomes for key product decisions within 24 to 48 hours. The results include clear product recommendations, aggregated customer comments, and vital price sensitivity data. The pricing data features an elasticity curve for each product and predicted Average Unit Retail (AUR) aligned with your business’ typical markdown cadence. Our platform allows you to easily identify winning products, and price them right from the outset.
