KVI Pricing
Automatically identify a complete list of KVIs in your assortment and use it for engaging shoppers!

KVI pricing instantly raises the traffic of your consumers, improves the perception of your pricing and assortment, and increases your profits.
What is KVI Pricing
You identify and update a complete list of KVIs and deliver more attractive prices of that KVIs, comparing to your competitors.

At the same time, you identify where in your assortment you can regain your margin. For such SKUs, you increase the margin.
What is KVIs
KVIs (Key Value Indicators / Items) is a group of goods, which can perform several essential functions for a store at once:
1
Shape consumers' price perception:
Shoppers tend to notice, compare and remember KVIs prices.
By KVIs prices a consumer determines a price category of a store, such as "unfair expensive" or "they provide great prices here."
2
Affect consumers' assortment perception:
Finding or not finding KVIs in a store, a shopper determines the shop as "This is the right place, everything I need I usually find here" or
"There is always only half of the goods I need here; I'll visit this store last."
3
Drive traffic to store:
With the optimal price, KVI attracts new customers and increases conversion to purchase.
Generally, KVIs have the following characteristics:
Popular goods (best-selling, frequently purchased) that customers tend to research and whose prices they tend to notice and compare.
Goods with a strong brand that competitors have in their assortment and whose prices shoppers compare easily in different stores.
Not impulse goods.
There are also "non-branded" KVIs: frequently purchased product categories in which well-known brands are absent or unimportant for the target consumers.
In grocery, for example, potatoes, bananas, fresh meat can be non-branded KVIs. Shoppers investigate how much an acceptable quality product costs in different stores.

Some retailers use a simplified approach; they classify all best-selling goods as KVIs: true KVIs, first-price goods, top-selling SKUs.
This simplification is often has a sense because of price transparency growth. Using price-comparison applications, such as Basket (basket.com), consumers don't need to rely on their memory anymore, even buying groceries; they can quickly compare both the price of specific SKU and the whole basket value in different stores.
Reducing KVIs prices attracts new shoppers and increases conversion to purchase; consumers make decisions easier and faster with a low price. Thus you increase your sales and gross margin.

If a retailer lacks some KVIs in its assortment, it loses its customers: shoppers switch to competing stores.
Where can a retailer recover its margin elsewhere in the assortment; on what SKUs can it charge higher prices? Such SKUs have the following characteristics:
Price varying of these goods is not crucial in determining to buy or not and where to buy.
Shoppers are poorly aware of the market price of these SKUs and their substitutes.
Сomplementary goods and impulse goods often have the potential to raise the margin.
What do companies achieve with KVI Pricing
A systematic, fact-based process for identifying and updating the KVI list, with delivering optimal prices for KVIs, enables retailers:

Improve their assortment planning. A complete list of KVIs empowers a company to prevent situations when KVIs are out of stock.
Increase their sales. With optimal prices, KVIs drive traffic to a store, attract new shoppers, and improve conversion to purchase.
Raise their gross margin by increasing sales and recovering margin on non-KVI goods.
