PROS Selected as Founding Member of New European Pricing Platform Chapter

EPP Expands to Serve
Growing Demand in Germany, Austria, Switzerland
BRUXELLES & MUNICH, XX August 2012
PROS®
(NYSE: PRO), a world leader in pricing and revenue management software, today
announced the company has been selected by the European Pricing Platform (EPP)
as a founding member of the first EPP chapter serving Germany, Austria and
Switzerland. By developing a local chapter for German-speaking countries, EPP
aims to create close contacts with pricing practitioners and partners, while
increasing an in-depth understanding of B2B and B2C challenges in today’s
volatile market environment.
EPP has voted Jochen Werner, PROS regional vice
president of sales for Central and Southern Europe, as the latest nominee to
the local chapter’s leadership board of experienced business experts. Werner
joins the board, along with executives from TUI Germany, the University of Osnabrück,
and the University of St. Gallen.

“Jochen
Werner brings a profound knowledge of how big data technologies can improve a
company’s pricing and sales performance, a unique point of view that will
benefit members of the EPP,” said EPP President Pol Vanaerde. “All of the
chapter’s board members bring valuable experience and insights. We are set for
a dynamic start in the highly competitive markets of Germany, Austria and
Switzerland.”

“During
the past year, I have seen a sharp increase in European companies using their
big data to advance sales effectiveness,” added Werner. “Many executives are
also seeking a better way to overcome the margin pressures that come from
market volatility. This is where EPP’s interactive approach and deep
understanding of business opportunities and challenges can really help to provide
best practices and scenario based consultancy.”

EPP German
Event
The EPP is a non-profit organization that informs
decision makers across Europe about the best practices, methodologies and

local market research, the new chapter will identify unique pricing opportunities
in the region.
