A Few Margin Bridge Analyzer FAQs

How does margin bridge analyzer work as a price tool?

This powerful tool provides your finance, accounting, and management teams with impactful and easy-to-consume insights.  That empowers you to gain more value from your commercial excellence initiatives, while documenting and tracking realized benefits.

Can price optimization software be tailored to my organization?

Yes. We can build and maintain unlimited user-defined mix analyses through an easy to use platform that meets your organization’s unique needs for how you need to aggregate data. 

How is PVM calculated?

Know the sum of your revenue for the previous year, then take the quantity of products sold in the current year and divide it by the difference in each product’s price minus the average price you’ve calculated. You want to calculate the average profit made per product sold.

How to Calculate Margin Mix

When businesses sell more than one product, knowing what each product individually contributes to revenue is important. This is done by calculating the margin mix for the sum of products. 

To calculate margin mix you need the sales price and cost of each product, and from this information you work out the gross profit and gross margin earned from the sale of each individual product in both monetary and percentage terms.
