You can trust in EPP as knowledge and network organisation for pricing professionals from Aftermarket and Manufacturing. But don't believe us, this is what previous attendees to our forums have to say about it:
Magnus Englund, Pricing Tools Development Manager at Alfa Laval Corporate AB
"I believe this seminar was very interesting and carried out in a professional way. I joined it because bringing just one new good idea home or seeing a new different solution angle to an existing problem makes a difference for our future work. It is about ideas and knowledge sharing but also building a network of partners focusing on excellence in pricing and wanting deeper knowledge in best practice pricing with focus on business to business manufacturing companies."
Lex Van Bruggen, Product Manager Spare Parts at Lely Industries NV
"This event gave me a really good insight into different pricing methodologies and how to improve pricing of spare parts in my company. Moreover, the interactive discussions with fellow attendants were very valuable."
Jozef Schulze Mengering - GEA Farm Technologies
"Thank you for your efforts. The Forum was a great opportunity to better understand how to optimize pricing for big numbers and cross border pricing."
Claude Vanbeveren - Sales & Marketing Manager - The Tweddle Group
"The EPP Aftermarket Forum presented an interesting mix of Automotive related Speakers as well as other industries and provide me with valuable insights in how different companies are tackling pricing and what they identified as Best Practices. Most of the parties seemed to have a consensus on the Best Practices, but the interesting part was how they implemented these concepts. All in all, a very good place to gather ideas and see peers in an open discussion environment. Definitely a keeper!"
Kevin Wheatland - Managing Partner - Service Pulse International
"The share of revenue and profit derived from product-related and non-product related services continues to increase in significance among OEMS and OESs. Ignore this trend and the potential of service business at your peril. EPP is an excellent platform for Aftermarket cross-learning and stimulation. The value and return are superb, when compared with the cost of obtaining such leading-edge knowledge by organic means."
Neil Fryer - Co-Founder - Price Positioning
"The Aftermarket Forum was a great opportunity to meet and network with professionals working in other industries. The Forum content gave the opportunity to reflect on common aftermarket issues and sparked off ideas for change and new ways of doing things. I would recommend it as an excellent way to take a step back and refresh one's thinking."
Laura Mayr, Sales - Aftersales Pricing Manager at Andreas Stihl
"It was the perfect opportunity to have daily questions answered, to meet pricing managers from other industrial sectors and learn from each other experiences. I think I will definitely keep in touch with one or another and like that benefit from the event for a long time."
Andrea Crosato - Aftermarket Manager HFFS Division - Ilapak
"Everything was perfect in Frankfurt: great location, and all of the presentations were really engaging. We have a lot of take-aways from the forum. Thanks!"
Ronald Schreiber - Pricing Team Manager - ZF Friedrichshafen AG
"An ideal forum to share and improve your pricing skills. It would be really a waste of time, not to be there."
Massimiliano Baggiani - Pricing Manager EMEA- Ideal Standard International Belgium
"Great exchange opportunity, very helpful to improve the drive of the business."
Eric van der Hammen, Chairman section Rotterdam of Royal Netherlands Society for Marine Technology (KNVTS)
"To spend two days focusing on an item such as "strategic pricing" was a true eye opener in the sense that it reminded me of the key role that pricing decisions (should) play in running your business successfully.” - in his capacity as Director of Alewijnse Marine B.V.
Roberto Bedotto, Global Pricing Director - Honeywell Process Solutions
“EPP Pricing Forums are a must attend for pricing professionals.”
Wim Beirens, Senior Director Pricing & Market Intelligence at Philips Healthcare
"Based on our experience, I can confirm that pricing maturity development and management effectively works in our organization. It’s a stepped approach and we involve Sales, Product Management, Finance, Factories, and Marketing in the pricing maturity roadmap. We track pricing maturity across all products & services businesses. Pricing awareness, training, coaching, and change management are important drivers to reach various levels of pricing maturity." - in his capacity as Director Strategic Pricing, Building Efficiency Europe & Africa - Johnson Controls Inc.
