“Supply chain issues, pricing fluctuations and inflationary pressures across nearly every industry forced companies to find ways to adjust to a volatile market”
In 2021, Pricefx increased revenue growth with SAP by 140% over 2020. The Advantage Pricefx partner program continued to drive significant return on investment in 2021 with at least one partner engaged on 70% of new customers signed through co-selling, influencing, and/or implementing the Pricefx solution. Several global system integrators, such as the KPMG German member firm, joined Pricefx’s ecosystem broadening the company’s reach and deepening its pricing expertise.
To support this growth, the company expanded its ranks by 11% in 2021, adding several key hires during the year. Ronak Sheth joined the company in May as President and Chief Revenue Officer. Toby Davidson was named Chief Product and Technology Officer in January, leading the development of several new product features throughout the year. In January, Pricefx partnered with Bain & Company to launch PricefxPlasma™, the industry’s first big data powered benchmarking platform. To address the increased demand for AI-driven revenue growth, Pricefx introduced the industry’s first AI-powered market simulation solution in April. Pricefx also simplified its product offering around three core packages Plan, Price and Profit, showcased in the company’s recently updated website.
Pricefx also brought Doug Fuehne on board as Senior Vice President to lead the newly formed Pricefx Impact team. With more than two decades of experience in pricing and software, Fuehne joined Pricefx from Amazon where he was the Global Practice Lead, Manufacturing & Supply Chain for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and led the creation of AWS’ digital supply chain transformation methodology. Prior to that, he was the Head of Customer Success for Commercial Industries at Amazon Business where he led the ProServe implementation team for Amazon’s B2B distribution division. The Impact team works across the entire customer lifecycle to help customers identify the best solutions specific to their industry and strategic goals, understand and measure the value delivered, and grow the value obtained from Pricefx over time.
“Supply chain issues, pricing fluctuations and inflationary pressures across nearly every industry forced companies to find ways to adjust to a volatile market,” said Sheth. “Pricefx was able to help companies navigate these challenges and maintain its leadership position in the market surge for price optimization. Our industry-leading pricing solutions, ability to create a customized plan for customers to achieve profitable growth in record time, and relentless focus on customer satisfaction has led to a blockbuster year for the company, including new customer acquisitions and continued expansion into existing accounts.”
