We believe this case study reinforces the value worldwide visibility into demand and effective price execution have in reducing price arbitrage, stemming price erosion, and protecting margins
Redwood Shores, California (PRWEB) April 1, 2010
Model N, Inc., the leader in Revenue Management solutions, today announced that a recent Gartner case study highlights Model N's role in a leading semiconductor manufacturer's efforts to protect margins and improve visibility into demand.
According to the case study, many companies are struggling to figure out how to protect and grow margins as increasing globalization and competition exert downward pressure on realized prices and deal quality. The study highlights how improved visibility into selling processes and related pricing practices can produce significant and measurable business benefits.
The study also recommends that semiconductor manufacturers re-examine selling processes to identify shortcomings in pricing practices that create revenue leakage due to information and process gaps, maverick discounting, price arbitrage, and imperfect approval processes.
"We believe this case study reinforces the value worldwide visibility into demand and effective price execution have in reducing price arbitrage, stemming price erosion, and protecting margins," said Rich Fitchen, General Manager, High Tech, at Model N. "With more than 40,000 users in over 50 countries, Model N's proven, domain-specific Revenue Management solutions are helping High Tech companies do just that by enhancing critical pricing, contracting, and settlement processes to maximize profitability and market share in an increasingly sophisticated and interconnected marketplace."
