In TEC's previous articles and blog posts about pricing management and optimization vendors like Zilliant, Vendavo, DemandTec, Servigistics or Revionics, the main focus was on finished goods (including spare parts).

Lessons Learned on the Inca Trail


Peru, a country with a glorious past and an uncertain future, stands at the crossroads. The inability to attract significant trade or investment due to the crime and lack of democratic principles in the nation should be addressed as a matter of urgency. Peru can learn from countries that share the legacy of lost empires -- for example China -- and examine the principles of their ancestors to create a sustainable economic environment.

Traveling from the airport to my hotel in Lima, I was greeted Read More

Saba People 2013-Of Learning & Development Cloud Platform


I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the energy and mood permeating the Saba People 2013 event.

Enterprises May Be Overlooking Profits from After-sales Service


If service parts and service personnel management are well managed, manufacturers can significantly improve their profits from service operations. This will lead in turn to significant overall profit margins.
