Key Takeaways:

We believe strongly in being able to reflect all of the things that influence, especially the ones that really move the needle with regards to the net margin.” - Gabe Smith 

“Pricefx is really about speed and flexibility - instead of trying to pre-bake things - and make them simple. We have the architectural flexibility to be able to make changes to account for those industry-specific needs as well.” - Gabe Smith 

“What we decided was that our value metric, the thing that aligns most readily to the value our customers get from our solution, is the amount of revenue that they're managing, and potentially the capabilities.”  - Gabe Smith 

“You've got to have the ability to have a subscription that makes sense, but also have the implementation aspect lightweight enough, where they're not going to have a big IT team and a bunch of pricing people to work on (it), and project management people to manage this whole thing.”- Gabe Smith
