The role of Humans in the Future of Revenue Management – A story of magic, intelligence and dogs

 

Humans and current systems can’t handle the complexity of big-data analytics alone. As the tech stack of the future becomes a present-day reality, revenue managers and their leaders will depend upon automated systems, the most advanced artificial intelligence and revenue science to handle tremendous amounts of data and build innovative, customer-centric pricing and promotions strategies. Klaus Kohlmayr, Chief Evangelist at IDeaS outlines how the revenue managers of the future will drive their strategic future and build insightful, effective and agile pricing, promotion and distribution strategies to meet the ever-changing needs of their consumers to enhance profitability.

12:30 - 13:30 Lunch

13:30-14:30 Kerry Farrell - Eversight Labs

 

Why retail promotions bore customers and how to use science to innovate your offers and excite customers

 

Shopper behaviour is constantly changing. Promotions are a key part of your value proposition yet shoppers are exposed to small pools of repetitive offers, creating a “sea of sameness.” This “sea of sameness” is further perpetuated by backward looking optimization tools. Meanwhile the pressure to grow topline is greater than ever. With Offer Innovation you can apply agile approaches to breaking this cycle while uncovering the highest performing promotions, continuously. Eversightlabs work with retailers and CPGs and partner with the likes of Facebook, McKinsey and IRI. Using behavioural economic insights and rapid variant testing to find new promotion mechanics with the goal of avoiding annualising last year and delighting customers.

When will the robots take over? The role of Automation in Price & Promotions decisions

 

There is a need for quicker and better price and promotions decisions. The complexityof retailing today is increasing. Data and Science are widely available to unlock better decisions. There is a growing need to understand the Customer better than competitors to steal growth and profitability. All this is happening with backdrop of the promise of Machine Leaning and Artificial Intelligence speeding up decisions. So where do the opportunities lie? What is around the corner and what is hyperbole? Howard will present the latest feedback from US retailers on what the US market is experiencing and the implications on the UK.

 

15:45 - 16:15  Howard Langer - dunnhumby


Just how Trustworthy are your prices and why does it matter?   Moderated forum

 

More trust is better than less trust. But what is trust and how do you earn it? What are the different types of pricing trust and how can they be reconciled? This is an open forum discussion using content from The Price is Wrong by Professor Sarah Maxwell.

 

Sarah Maxwell, PhD, is an expert in fair pricing, with both academic and business experience in this field. She is an Associate Professor at Fordham University and is Co-Director of the Fordham Pricing Center. Dr. Maxwell is also Associate Editor of Pricing for the Journal of Product and Brand Management and has written for a variety of publications, including the Journal of Business Research, Journal of Economic Psychology, and the American Journal of Economics and Sociology
