In the complicated and often opaque construction of B2B supply chain, each relationship and pricing agreement forms another interdependence in an intricate web. Market tremors, raw material issues, geopolitical concerns or any number of variables can rattle the entire supply chain. In times of volatility, this pauses as a challenge of amplified uncertainty and higher risks for the companies.
ClearD3™ comes as a solution to this challenge.
Taking into consideration the uniqueness of your company, ClearD3™ monitors the supply chain relationships within your industry, tracks and measures known interdependencies.
This is an intelligent platform that is able to harness the insights within thousands of external data items, both positives and negatives, linking their relevance and potential for your business. The result is a highly accurate price forecasting based on consolidating the advice of all data items along the entire supply network of your industry.
ClearD3™ can help your company add to its margins and revenues, but without the burden of crippling start-up investments.

Clear ROI Targets
Should you price aggressively today and give your customers a 3-to-6-month pricing commitment? Or is it better to be cautious, market pricing could go up sharply?

Costs and timeline for achieving Return On Investment
When dealing with complex business challenges, projections based on historical data alone are of little use. Looking back at last year’s, or even the past 5 years’ prices, even with the support of consultants and external analysts, means you are still doing guesswork — an expensive guesswork.
Stop looking back and start moving forward.
ClearD3™ runs real-time analyses of thousands of external macro-economic and industry data points aggregated to arrive at the best price for your products – the price that will achieve growth and profitability for your company.
No Process Changes
Our implementation approach ensures employees can continue to work as before, so business as usual. No interference with what your people know best from years of experience in their domain. ClearD3™ handles the behind-the-scenes collection of supply chain data and price optimisation keeping your company consistently ahead of competition.
Your company can continue working with its normal price ‘waterfall’ process, offering your customers the customised discount and rebate structures they are familiar with.
No False Positives
The key challenge of the data science effort is to generate reliable insights and avoid expensive forecasting errors – so called ‘false positives’ or ‘false negatives’.
Real-time economic supply-chain relationships in ClearD3™ serve as a guardrail for the Machine Learning algorithms. Historically strong relationships are taken into consideration only when they have economic relevance. Our data scientists draw on this best practice to improve the forecasting performance in the real world.
Companies can reap an additional 4 to 6 % in gross margins by incorporating external data in their pricing process. But there is more at stake. Possessing new market knowledge before your competitors do, can make the difference between winning market share or losing it to the competition.
