Product Optimization Research: Ensure your new product’s continuous success

Our product optimization research helps you to monitor the success of your solutions in-market by combining internal and market data, and use “what if” scenarios to understand the effect of optimizing your product / brand portfolio.


Our approach: The Price Sensitivity Meter

The right pricing strategy plays a crucial role in ensuring the continuous success of your product and should therefore be regularly assessed.

  • The “Price Sensitivity Meter” was first introduced by Dutch economist Peter van Westendorp in 1976

  • It is based on the data from four questions that focus on the price points where an offering is seen as too expensive to purchase, too cheap to purchase (where the quality is under question), getting expensive (but still of a purchasable price), and good value for money (an attractive price point).

  • The intersections of the curves are analyzed to identify the optimum price range i.e. the lower and upper bounds of acceptable pricing, and the optimum price point.


Case study: Gathering insights through customer and prospect feedback to enable Envirotainer to optimize their product set

Envirotainer was founded in 1985 and are the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for air transport of pharmaceuticals.

They approached B2B International at a time they were developing a brand-new container to complement the internal work done by their own R&D team. Through this research partnership, they wanted to ensure they remained at the forefront of innovation, and therefore wanted to understand how they could differentiate themselves in the market based on customer needs.

Primarily, they wanted to understand which features of the new container would be most important to users and how this would affect their willingness to pay. Further to this, they also wanted to gain an understanding on which features to prioritize in their marketing strategy once it was ready to take to market.

Case study: Supporting the successful re-launch of a lower cost brand sitting alongside a premium core brand

A major producer of LED lighting systems approached B2B International to aid a successful re-launch of one of their brands. A couple of years prior to the project, the client had launched a new, lower cost product range. Initially positioned separately, the company then decided to market the new range under their core brand.

To aid a successful re-launch, our client wanted to get an understanding of installer’s perceptions of the core brand versus competing brands and what strengths & weaknesses major brands have.

Our client also wanted to get insight into the perceptions of the potentially competing brands in their product portfolio and see whether each proposition is understood and considered relevant for purchase. The major question the client had was whether the cheaper product range would have a negative impact on the perception of the core brand.
