KiniMetrix™ Price/Volume/Mix Analysis Module

Drive Margin Growth Through Smarter PVM Analysis

Identify the impact of price, cost, volume and mix on your bottom line –

quickly and intuitively

The KiniMetrix™ Price Volume Mix (PVM) Analysis module measures the precise impact of price, cost, volume, and any kind of mix (customer/product/channel/etc.) on your bottom line. This cloud-based module automatically evaluates the many factors that contribute to profit change, using an intuitive, wizard-based process to simplify complex analyses. View the results in intuitive charts and reports to enable faster, better-informed decisions and improved profitability.

Mix. Not Mystery.

Don’t accept “it’s mix” as the explanation for unexpected shifts in business performance. KiniMetrix PVM splits margin changes into discrete components– price, cost, volume, and mix shift. Separate mix effects into meaningful components like product mix, customer mix, and other types of mix relevant to your business. Our ground-up PVM calculations have no plugs, ensuring 100% accurate rate volume mix analysis.

Drill-down charts and reports deliver visibility across any customer, product, and other key dimensions. These insights help fine-tune sales, pricing, marketing, and operations performance.
