Retail Price Optimization Models are complex algorithms designed to evaluate the change of demand at various price levels and match the results with the data on costs and inventory levels so to craft optimal prices and maximize profits.
In order to maximize the KPI of choice on a portfolio level, be it volume, revenue, or profit, the retailer needs optimization models that factor in both the elasticity of the product and its cross-elasticity with related products. An elaborate equation combines all of these coefficients and provides a solution of optimal prices across the retailer’s portfolio.
With such an optimization model, the retailer implements the so-called ‘differentiated’ pricing recommendations across selected products in order to predict and maximize the portfolio target of choice – volume, revenue, or profit – for each SKU.
