Click Here for a Tour of Trade Service Margin Optimizer™…powered by epaCUBE

Margin Optimizer allows the Trade Service distributor customer to clearly see and understand how supplier cost changes impact your pricing performance and gross profits. Actionable intelligence gained can then be applied to stem profit loss and avert future negative results.

Understanding the effects of supplier cost changes on your pricing and gross margin BEFORE you start selling product is critical to preserving and increasing your profits.

The Margin Optimizer service is tied to your weekly Trade Service eDataFlex price updates so you can see and evaluate, in advance, the specific impact the week’s changes will have on your bottom line if left unaddressed.
