Atlanta—May 10, 2012—Servigistics, an enterprise software solution provider for Service Lifecycle Management (SLM), and Eucon, a solutions provider for business performance management and a specialist in added value information systems, now offer a joint service that will enable automotive manufacturers and tier one suppliers to increase profitability on aftermarket parts sales.

The combination of Eucon’s in-depth market knowledge with Servigistics Service Parts Pricing solution—that simulates and identifies the optimal price for every new and existing aftermarket part—will provide clients with the tools to further competitive advantage and higher profit contributions from service.

"Pricing Manager helps to meet the complex product management requirements with its unique combination of proven pricing software and aftermarket expertise, “explained Norbert Dohmen, Managing Director, Automotive at Eucon. “By combining our research expertise with Servigistics’ software, we are offering an innovative solution to the automotive market to optimize profits throughout the parts’ lifecycle.”

Both Servigistics and Eucon have a strong presence in the aftermarket automotive industry.

The company tracks millions of automotive products from launch right through to elimination, supporting decision-making to improve margins.

“Pricing professionals understand that without the right tools and data, it is difficult to calibrate service parts prices to avoid undesirable loss of market share through over-pricing and unnecessary profit erosion through under-pricing," said Eric Hinkle, Chief Executive Officer, Servigistics. ”The combined offering with Eucon will help companies make better informed decisions to capture the value and competitive advantage that can be achieved from price optimization in aftermarket parts sales.”
