Small Manufacturers Automate Comparison Pricing



Every manufacturer must pay attention to costs and competitors' pricing. For better or worse, purchasing professionals are rewarded for capturing the lowest price; few have the time to scour the internet for ever RFQ to see if the bid offered is indeed competitive. Measuring value with price experiments is not realistic. Full-time competitive pricing professionals could work 24/7 to generate statistically valid and accurate data. For the small and mid-sized manufacturer, the solution is...

Squeezed For Margin: Small Manufacturers Stop Leaving Money On The Table


 Price optimization technology for large manufacturing operations costs from $120K - $1.5M per year. For multi-location, global, and publicly traded companies this is an expense easily cost-justified. A small 1% in margin preservation is worth thousands of times the expense of price optimization technology...

Industrial IoT: Price comparison data preserves margins for small and mid-sized manufacturers


 IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is misunderstood by most small and mid-sized manufacturers who neither have the funding nor the inclination to gather, cull, and use big data. What these organisations need is to preserve thin margins to survive (and hopefully thrive). 

The new low-cost provider in this space is ManufacturingPower


 Too often the lack of pricing comparison and routinized purchasing from distributors and vendors are the proximate causes of lost margin. Without big data clarity there is no way to know if the price paid is fair or competitive, says Thomas R. Cutler, president and CEO of TR Cutler, Inc...
