Joint Value Creation Beyond Price ECR Europe Advisory – May 24
BACKGROUND Market place increasingly challenged by deflation and declining or stagnant market size. Manufacturers and retailers rely more and more on price as the only value driver. BOARD November 2004 The current trading environment, shaped among others by discounters, has emerged because ECR retailers and manufacturers have not yet been able to totally fulfil consumer wishes. Price is only one value driver. ECR Europe recognises the role played by other value drivers (e.g. health, convenience, proximity, changes in household profiles). Major roadblock to value creation, implementation of ECR demand creation processes: the buyer-seller relationship looking on quick return rather than looking to build sustainable value for o the consumers and shoppers o for the companies
THE RECOMMENDATION ECR Europe shall set up a project to improve Joint Value Creation Beyond Price. The project aims at: Review: explain/understand the environment Encouraging a wider usage of Joint Business Planning to increase shopper and consumer attraction and loyalty Present innovative solutions in the shopping experience and product offer which lead to market growth by addressing other consumer/shopper value than price.
