The client: Healthcare retail company
Area of engagement: Price Point Optimization
A very few things in the global healthcare sector can be as potentially disruptive as retail healthcare or retail clinics. Their very existence could either complement or threaten a few segments of the healthcare system including hospitals, government healthcare facilities, and pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers. As a result, several leading healthcare sector companies have recognized this trend and started expanding critical care offerings while increasingly partnering with national pharmacies and retailers to establish robust walk-in retail healthcare outlets.
However, several factors are influencing the growth of the retail healthcare sector across the globe. These factors include:
- Technological impact: The recent rapid technological advancements have made it easier for companies in the retail healthcare sector to handle large-scale businesses while catering to the needs of consumers. Additionally, the use of online marketing platforms is driving the retail healthcare industry towards a future with high growth prospects.
- Value for money: Typically, a well-organized retail healthcare store deals with high volumes, offering a range of drugs and medical services at a reasonable price; thereby, attracting customers on a large scale. This also creates an excellent opportunity for retailers to achieve more profits and enable new sub-groups to enter the sector.
These factors are compelling retail healthcare firms to leverage the use of price optimization strategies. Price optimization solutions help firms calculate the demand for products and services at different intervals and scales. Price optimization solutions also help firms combine data across different data sets with information and inventory levels to achieve robust pricing strategies and enhance current profit margins. Price optimization also assists retail healthcare businesses in forecasting the demand and improving customer satisfaction levels.
