The good news is if you want to get anywhere at within pricing in the early days, you’ll have a handful of Excel files in place. Which is great. In fact, it’s amazing.
Getting control of your pricing and putting a price framework in place is though. Who wants to run prices by another person and have the time to collect, clean and package the data needed for better pricing? And you did it.
And yet …
It probably won’t be enough. 5 Excel files, 50 sheets, whatever the number is. It’s not scalable. In fact, it may seem like you will everything would fall apart if you left the company.
I get it, I’ve been there. In fact, most price managers have. At one point its simply time to leverage up to a price management software and leave the Excel files behind. You will know when.
Sounds familiar? You’re not alone.
