Quick Start Changes the Game
Transform Your Pricing in Three to Eight Weeks
Time is fleeting in 2022. Inflationary pressures, omnichannel buying and selling demands, and fierce digital competition put a premium on the ability to act quickly. Continuing to use spreadsheets to run commercial processes or taking on a long-term commercial transformation engagement are not attractive options at the moment for the vast majority of companies.
Zilliant’s new Quick Start Program, announced today, arrives not a moment too soon as a more practical means to tackling these issues. With Quick Start, B2B companies can leverage Zilliant’s leading pricing and revenue intelligence platform to solve discrete commercial challenges in as little as three weeks.
This marks a paradigm shift in the way that pricing and sales solutions are deployed in businesses. Throughout the rest of 2022 and beyond, you can expect a wide-ranging portfolio of purpose-built Quick Start packages to be released. Our initial Quick Start package – available immediately - focuses on solving the confounding issue of manual global and country price list setting and management. For more details, read on below – but first, let’s hear from Zilliant Senior Vice President of Professional Services Rick Chappel:
As Rick mentioned, we fully expect the Quick Start Program to fundamentally disrupt how B2B companies approach their commercial challenges, allowing them to realize value from Zilliant software faster than ever.
Quick Start FAQ:
What is the Zilliant Quick Start Program?
The Zilliant Quick Start program consists of packaged solutions to specific pricing and sales challenges, each of which can be up and running within the span of three to eight weeks, work seamlessly with each other on the same platform, and are extensible to fit the needs of B2B companies.
Quick Start pairs the flexibility and power of Zilliant’s cloud-native platform with out-of-the-box, packaged solutions. This means that our industry-leading software is now able to start delivering value for customers faster than any other vendor in the market. Power meets speed.
In a period of inflation, time is money. Right now, in nearly every B2B company, there are manual commercial processes that are causing margin leakage on a daily, even hourly, basis. Deploying price optimization and management software may seem too time-intensive or difficult. Historically, this perception tended to drive pricing and commercial teams into the arms of spreadsheets to manage pricing, sales operations and commercial functions, a method that is insufficient to respond to today’s volatile market conditions.
Quick Start flips that perception by creating a new reality: you can now move beyond manual spreadsheets and get ahead of the market with rapid time-to-value and lower cost of ownership.
What is the Global and Country Price List Quick Start?
For large B2B companies that operate globally, the arduous process of updating their price lists and passing through cost changes to each country they do business in is increasingly untenable in today’s market climate.
With the Global and Country Price List Quick Start package you can deploy Zilliant Price Manager in as few as four weeks to transform this time-consuming, manual process into a turnkey one. Our pre-built templates make it easy to:
- Update global list prices as costs change using pre-defined cost pass-through strategies
- Perform currency conversions to calculate country list prices
- Make additional country factor adjustments to list prices
- Provide scoped user access to centralized and decentralized pricing teams within the same system of price management
- Add additional waterfall elements with out-of-the-box extensions
Make massive spreadsheets and slow update cycles a memory – in just a month.
What’s Coming Next?
We are hard at work developing the next Quick Start packages, which will be released in rapid succession. Stay tuned to find out the next common pricing and sales challenges we are tackling with a standardized, out-of-the-box approach!
