Companies must address complex pricing issues, involving increasingly sophisticated trading partners, to improve profitability in business-to-business (B2B) transactions. Successful pricing software needs to deliver meaningful business intelligence to front-line sellers in real time, integrate with existing tools and business processes, and achieve high user adoption rates.
To address these challenges PROS integrated its pricing optimization software with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, and the Microsoft Office 2007 suites. Using the integrated solution, customers make more-informed, less-risky pricing decisions, with high user adoption and outstanding software cost/performance ratios.
The results were outstanding and the benefits included:
- Recurring profits
- Smarter pricing decisions
- Reduced Risk
- High user adoption rates
- Outstanding cost/performance ratios
“SQL Server 2008 R2 is better, cheaper, and faster than competing databases. We encourage companies to look at it. For example, when we performed a benchmark study using PROS Scientific Analytics in a real customer scenario, SQL Server 2008 R2 showed an average of 57 percent better user-response time than Oracle” - John Salch (Director of Product Development PROS)
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 delivers higher scalability for mission-critical environments, more efficient IT, and expanded reporting and analytics through self-service business intelligence.
