"Selecting TradePulse as a primary pricing management solution afforded us a system that can deliver results quickly," said Mike Cekay, Senior Vice President of Global Sales, Crimson Wine Group. "For us, having the ability to easily access web-based reports and create custom analysis for specific markets made the decision to join TradePulse almost a no-brainer."

TradePulse's innovative Pricing Manager application was introduced in 2012 to fill a critical void that exists for suppliers producing and managing pricing information for multi-tiered, multi-state markets. It improves company pricing discipline, creates market-ready pricing and helps facilitate "what if" modeling scenarios based on pricing changes. The system also provides a quick visual window into business intelligence and market trends for rapid adjustments, and functions as a single repository for all pricing information. A number of TradePulse's long-standing clients have added the Pricing Manager to their mix of current services. New customers are rapidly adopting the application as well.
"For us, the key advantage of TradePulse is their deep knowledge and expertise in the beverage alcohol industry. They understand our unique needs, their technology is constantly adapting to be one step ahead of the competition, and they are continually exploring new ways to help companies like ours make better investment decisions," remarked Mike Holden, SVP Sales & Marketing of Huneeus Vintners.
