Profit AccelerationLearn More
Quickly and easily increase profits by 25%
SPARXiQ has discovered, from years of studying distributor transaction data, that companies actually lose money on a surprising amount of low-demand products. The reason? Traditional pricing matrices don’t account for variances in the cost to serve that are specific to certain long-tail, ancillary items. Combined with cost-plus pricing methods with consistent markups across all product lines, this creates a costly problem.
Switch™ by SPARXiQ uses proprietary approaches to seamlessly identify and optimize the cost basis of products that are cutting into your profits. And, to make things as easy as possible, these adjustments are seamlessly loaded directly into your ERP system.

Master specific pricing agreements (SPAs) and contracts
Managing countless special pricing records – all with different pricing, terms, and expiration dates – creates significant complexity for manufacturers and distributors.
Because of the administrative challenges to maintaining contract and SPA business, many companies simply extend existing pricing and terms, rolling them over year after year, resulting in reduced profitability.
SPARXiQ helps companies regain control and profitability in this challenging part of their business with ContractGPS™.
ContractGPS™ is a cloud-based, ERP-agnostic platform that provides flexible, easy-to-use options for searching, summarizing, and modifying contract records that are often tough to navigate.

Today’s modern buyer expects in-stock availability and same-day delivery; in fact, Amazon (and its imitators) are raising the bar to 2-hour delivery in many markets and in many product categories (increasing B2B). From a customer-centric point of view, the “I don’t have it but I can get it for you” response won’t cut it anymore. The myopic obsession with inventory turns has led many distributors to undermine a core tenet of their value proposition: supporting customers’ time-sensitive needs as frictionlessly as possible.
Coupled with the right customer-segment targeting (ProfitGPS™), and optimized pricing differentiation (PriceGPS™), InventoryGPS™ provides manufacturers and distributors the profit-optimized inventory analytics to drive profitable growth and market-leading customer centricity.
