Zilliant announced its Zilliant Quick Start Program, which enables faster deployment times for its software and faster time-to-value for customers.
The first Quick Start package of this program is Zilliant Quick Start for Global and Country Price Lists, which is available now.
In the past, deploying price optimization and management software may have seemed time intensive or difficult to implement. As a direct result, pricing and commercial teams rely on spreadsheets to manage pricing, sales operations and commercial functions, a method that is insufficient to respond to today’s volatile market conditions.
The Zilliant Quick Start program flips this paradigm, offering packaged solutions to address 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, the company says.
“Each Zilliant Quick Start package is an accelerator, purpose-built to enable companies to get up and running with pricing and sales software faster than ever before,” says Rick Chappel, Zilliant senior vice president of professional services. “What may take other pricing software vendors months to deploy, can now be done with Zilliant software in a matter of weeks.”
The first Zilliant Quick Start for Global and Country Price Lists is available now with Zilliant Price Manager. The company says it is purpose-built to streamline global and country list price management with a standardized price waterfall enabling companies to:
- Easily 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
If customers need to manage additional elements in the price waterfall, this Quick Start package offers out-of-the-box extensions to fit their business.
“The average time for global companies to update pricing when costs change is between six weeks and four months, which is too slow in today’s economy. It’s a process which unfortunately results in significant margin loss,” says Zilliant President and CEO Greg Peters. “Zilliant’s first Quick Start package for Global and Country Price Lists squarely addresses this challenge, allowing these companies to easily update prices as costs change and keep pace with market volatility.”
