Instacart to Implement Surge Pricing During peak Hours
“Learn more”, a simple phrase that we use often at the Promotion Optimization Institute, but never take for granted. We’re just that serious about our mission of advancement!
The best and brightest are gathering at POI on April 12-14in Chicago to learn more, and here are the reasons why…
For manufacturers and retailers to effectively collaborate, they need to understand the effects of decisions beyond soledependency on promotions, reactive pricing, whether through even more, deeper discounts, or ineffective offers.
You’re coming to POI to learn with your peers and trading partners to determine (based on which type of pricing strategy) how a much different (and more intensive) modeling/analytic approach must be taken. You’ll improve your ability when considering the many variables (including elements of price decisions) associated with consumer behavior in order to accurately predict the cause and effect of raising or lowering prices on volume sold, and profitability.
Even as retailers struggle to end dependency on promotions, pricing fever continues, whether through even more, deeper discounts, dynamic pricing, or new responses to price transparency. Retailers seek the right price strategies to both maximize margin and meet consumer price expectations. All attendees will gain greater insight into how retailers and manufacturers can begin to wean consumers off of deep discounts.
The focus of POI is always on advancement, and will begin with the critical success factors across the people, culture and technology dimensions because change is not easy, but having a solid methodology and knowing what the common pitfalls are can be great facilitators. This will be demonstrated in part by how companies like General Mills, Church & Dwight, andConAgra leverage analytics to facilitate mutual growth with their teams and trading partners. Attendees will learn and improve capabilities via an in-depth look at the five key success factors for optimizing the return on your trade investment as the rules and tools continue to change delivered by Strategy&. You’ll learn more about mobility, asPepsiCo demonstrates how predictive trade promotion models with customer POS data can be used to build a simple, intuitive application that can be accessed from a workstation or a tablet.Collaborative Marketers know that a complete learning experience includes a cross-functional approach. You’ll gain insight from a leading retailer on how the grocery supply chain is evolving, as formats, and shopper needs change. And, by the 2nd day, you’ll gain a greater understanding of how digital coupons are leveraged, and measured in an Omnichannel world. Those of you who are already registered are in for another sensational learning experience, and I anticipate seeing you in Chicago. If you still have not registered, reach me, or my team, and we will assist with your needs.
Registration for manufacturers and retailers is available at POI Event Registration. View the complete, and advanced agenda, and register today!
