HOUSTON & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PROS® (NYS: PRO) , a big data software company, today announced its sponsorship of the Chemical Sales and Marketing Effectiveness Conference, scheduled Feb. 27-28 at the Hotel Husa President Park in Brussels.

As part of the two-day event, PROS Director of Sales for Northern Europe Will Edward, and Regional Vice President for Central and Southern Europe Jochen Werner, will present a session titled "How Pricing Excellence Drives Sales Effectiveness." Edward and Werner will demonstrate how chemical companies can apply big data science to optimise margins and provide sales teams with more in-depth guidance on pricing, cost to serve and volume purchasing decisions.

Using big data can help pricing, sales and marketing teams gain insights into optimal price points and offers for their customers, enabling them to turn market volatility into market opportunity. We look forward to sharing our insights gained from working alongside some of the world's leading chemical companies."
