Webcast Summary

Few CFOs would disagree that their companies ought to aspire to increase profitability while minimizing costs. But many companies continue to face challenges with identifying the best ways to sustain profitability, such as by offering different prices to different segments of customers, or employing activity-based costing to justify the use of resources to support specific products or services. Fortunately, advances in cloud-based technology are accelerating the speed at which finance leaders can gain visibility into and capitalize on opportunities to improve profitability.

During this Webcast, we will reveal:

  • How finance leaders can combine a variety of methods of pricing, customer segmentation, and cost management to increase profitability;
  • What finance leaders should keep in mind when evaluating the effects of introducing new business models, such as subscription-based services, on profitability; and
  • Best practices for applying the newest capabilities of cloud-based technology to recognize and act on profitability improvement opportunities.
