Parts Pricing - Kärcher

The machine manufacturing industry has experienced a lot over the last few years.  

There are several trends to look out for in the construction machinery industry that will greatly benefit the success of these businesses if adopted. Deloitte identifies that market dynamics and emerging technologies are two trends to watch for in 2023 that will help companies differentiate themselves and capture growth in the year ahead. 

The parts business is under pressure. The most pressing challenges currently facing the spare parts business are digitization, lack of market insight/intelligence, time-consuming manual processes and the skilled labor shortage. Luckily, all three of these challenges can be solved with PRICERADAR. 

There is heightened uncertainty in 2023, with rising inflation, interest rates, and divergent trends across various industry segments. Companies are closely monitoring their backlogs and the market, particularly in the latter half of the year, to assess how they will fare. While many companies have significant backlogs, especially, for example, in energy-related construction and data centers, they may face challenges as they navigate potential economic slowdowns that could impact their deliveries. As a result, companies in the machine manufacturing industry are taking proactive measures to mitigate risks and ensure operational efficiency to weather the uncertain economic climate. 


The Tool for Market-Based Pricing

Although the manufacturing industry has been slow to integrate and adopt digital technologies, industry players are now embracing emerging technologies. Many companies are leveraging digital technologies to enhance project execution, reduce costs in the long run, and expand business opportunities. Additionally, with increased global supply chain disruptions, heightened competition, labor shortages, and soaring material prices, the need for digital transformation in the construction industry has become more pressing than ever. 

This is where PRICERADAR comes in.

Our Top Features of PRICERADAR


01 Clear Dashboard

The machine manufacturing industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies and innovations being developed to enhance efficiency, safety and sustainability. 

Having a tool with a dashboard that displays potential and revenue growth for your spare parts benchmarks is incredibly valuable for a construction machinery company. This provides a clear, concise overview of the company's financial health and helps inform strategic decision-making. 

The potential growth benchmark for your spare parts business provides an estimate of the company's future parts revenue growth based on intelligent data and market trends. This information can be used to set realistic targets and identify areas for improvement. For example, if the potential growth benchmark shows that revenue growth has been stagnant or declining, the company may need to adjust their parts pricing strategy, invest in new parts, marketing campaigns, or other initiatives to boost sales and stay competitive in the market. 


Additionally, having access to PRICERADAR, a pricing tool with a parts revenue growth benchmark provides a snapshot of the company's current financial performance compared to industry standards and competitors. This information helps to identify strengths and weaknesses within the company's operations and guide decision-making around resource allocation and investment priorities. For example, if the revenue growth benchmark shows that the company is outperforming its competitors, it may be wise to invest in expansion or diversification to capitalize on this advantage. 

Utilizing a pricing tool with a dashboard that displays potential and revenue growth benchmarks helps facilitate communication and collaboration across different departments within the company. By providing a shared understanding of the company's financial health, PRICERADAR helps align goals and priorities and promote more informed decision-making. 

PRICERADAR is incredibly valuable for a construction machinery company. It provides critical insights into the company's financial performance, informs strategic decision-making surrounding spare parts, and promotes collaboration and alignment across departments. 

We aim to make the PRICERADAR tool as valuable and easy to navigate as possible, and our team is constantly working on ways to strengthen our tool. As our customer base continues to grow larger, we must ensure our tool is both intuitive and all-encompassing. Having a detailed dashboard view right when you log in, that shows pricing, a graph, and a full summary in one spot, makes the tool extremely user-friendly.  


02  Full Market Intelligence  

In today's highly competitive construction industry, staying ahead of the curve is crucial for businesses to maintain their edge. 

For construction machinery companies, this means having a strong understanding of market prices, trends and consumer preferences, which can only be achieved holistically through full market intelligence in the PRICERADAR tool 

PRICERADAR's market intelligence involves collecting and analyzing information about the market, including parts pricing and lead times of those in the market, therefore allowing users to make informed business decisions. 

One of the key benefits of market intelligence for construction machinery companies is the ability to identify new opportunities. By analyzing market prices, trends and competitor lead times, construction equipment manufacturers can adapt their parts pricing structure and strategy. This helps to increase revenue.  

Another significant advantage of market intelligence is the ability to stay ahead of the competition. By monitoring competitor activity and analyzing their strengths and weaknesses, companies can develop strategies to differentiate themselves and gain a competitive edge. For example, if a company notices that a competitor is offering lower prices, it may decide to focus on offering better customer service or product quality. For example, if a company notices that their competitors are selling a spare part for a significantly higher price, they are then able to adapt their pricing, making them an attractive and suitable competitor. 

Finally, market intelligence is crucial for construction machinery companies because it allows them to make data-driven decisions.

By collecting and analyzing data, companies can make informed decisions about product development, marketing strategies, and sales tactics. This can help them avoid costly mistakes and make the most of their resources. 

Having access to full market intelligence is essential for construction machinery companies to succeed in today's competitive market. By staying on top of market trends and consumer preferences, companies can identify new opportunities, stay ahead of the competition, and make data-driven decisions. Ultimately, this allows them to increase revenue, expand their customer base and achieve long-term success. 


It is important to note that PRICERADAR's intelligent market data is backed by artificial intelligence (AI). An AI-based tool, like PRICERADAR, can offer significant advantages for machine manufacturers in the spare parts industry While other technologies or methods may have their own advantages, AI brings unique benefits to a tool that makes it more valuable for machine manufacturers.

AI can analyze vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, which can be particularly useful for spare parts pricing across the market.

Additionally, AI can automate tasks that would otherwise require significant time and effort from a human employee, leading to increased efficiency and cost savings. Finally, the scalability of AI-based tools makes them suitable for businesses of all sizes, enabling smaller companies to compete with larger players in the industry.
