Understand performance and profitability across the product suite in your business. Identify under-performing and unprofitable products and extrapolate opportunities to improve overall business profitability through SKU management.

In its extensive experience with Australian retailers, PCG Solutions has identified a consistent theme when it comes to SKU profitability – many retailers simply do not know the true profitability of their products. This gap in knowledge often leads to ineffective pricing strategy, discount control and overall mismanagement of a business’ product range.

Whilst most businesses operate using high level margin calculations of their products, understanding true profitability requires analysis of factors such as sales channels, customer types and seasonal campaigns, at a segment level.
