HOUSTON & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PROS® (NYSE: PRO), the revenue and profit realization company, today announced its participation in the 2016 Aftermarket Business Platform. The conference, sponsored by Copperberg Research, is scheduled for Oct. 19-21 at the Hotel Dorint Pallas in Wiesbaden, Germany.
The tenth annual conference will focus on delivering customer value and differentiation in the global aftermarket industry. In a recent Copperberg survey, almost 95 percent of respondents reported a positive view of the service business in Europe over the next five years, despite rapidly changing customer expectations and behaviors. Companies are looking for more flexible and customizable solutions, and manufacturers are faced with how to create better customer relationships with the right people and the right technologies that enable them to grow their businesses.
Nick Boyer, a PROS senior strategic consultant in Europe, will deliver an address titled Customer Experience: The New Battleground to Drive Revenue Growth. In his address, Boyer will discuss how today’s manufacturing industry sales reps deal on average with 300 different internal touch points per month to close business. For manufacturers that haven’t achieved best-in-class status for generating quotes, it takes up to five times longer, which negatively impacts both the top and bottom line. Boyer will provide insights on how companies can foster customer loyalty – and close deals faster – to drive revenue growth, based on PROS experience of working with customers around the world in the global aftermarket industry.
“Companies are looking for new opportunities to redefine pricing and selling with personalized buying experiences,” said Marc Chesover, PROS Senior Vice President of Customer Acquisition for EMEA and Asia. “We plan to showcase our depth of experience in the aftermarket manufacturing industry. PROS is enabling organizations to better serve their customers with faster quote turnaround times and smarter selling that accelerates sales, and helps generate revenue and profit.”
