Comprehensive PVM Analyses Across All of Your Business Dimensions

With Vendavo Margin Bridge Analyzer, enterprises can automate ‘real-time’ value capture tracking across complex price, sales volume, product mix, and other dynamic market factors, like currency fluctuations. 

This powerful price-volume-mix analysis 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.

Traditionally, companies have done this analysis by spreadsheet, adding significant time, inaccuracy, and a lack of flexibility in how results are broken down. Or they simply can’t scale to the volumes required in order to do a margin analysis. So large enterprises have found it difficult to efficiently and quickly analyze, simulate, and explain the differences in revenues and margin changes from one time period.

Yet that’s vital in making these insights actionable and able to provide better guidance to drive more value.  Enter Vendavo Margin Bridge Analyzer.

Measure the Impact of your Pricing Strategy​

Margin Bridge Analyzer has been used successfully to measure the impact of pricing actions and initiatives for many Vendavo customers. By isolating and quantifying the impact of price on revenue and/or margin, and filtering or slicing your data by relevant geographies, dates, and business dimensions, you can measure the effectiveness of strategic pricing actions and your entire initiative.

Easily Build Custom Revenue and Margin Bridges

Margin Bridge Analyzer enables you to build and maintain unlimited, user-defined Price/Volume/Mix analyses through easy-to-use “clicks not code” configuration. You can build your own Price/Volume/Mix models that meet your organization’s unique needs for how you need to aggregate data, how you define “mix”, and how your users want to drill down through your analyses.

Scalable and Secure Product Mix Analysis Across Your Entire Enterprise​

With a modern cloud-based architecture that is both highly secure and extremely scalable, Margin Bridge Analyzer provides fast, powerful analysis on all your enterprise transactions in less time than it takes to get your coffee. No need to stretch spreadsheets beyond their limits, or risk exposing sensitive data with non-enterprise-grade home-grown tools.
