Don’t lose on price – learn more about how
Digium can help

As you know, today’s IP PBX market is very competitive. A wise sales manager once told me that we never lose on price, we lose because we fail to create value. That being said, we all hate to lose on price, especially if we don’t get the opportunity to sharpen our pencil.

Digium wants the opportunity to support you in price-competitive deals. Before you “lose on price”, please contact your channel manager to see if we can help!

Here are some criteria that Digium considers when offering special pricing.

  • Is there documented evidence of competitive pricing? A copy of a competitive quote is great. A customer’s report that we are X% high is good. Bring as much data as the customer is willing to share.
  • Who is the competition? Are we comparing relatively equal alternatives?
  • Are you prepared to discount? Shared reward will require some shared pain. Speaking of pain…what is the prospect’s pain and how does Digium address it? How does the competition address it? How can we position our value in tandem with a discount?
  • When will the customer purchase the solution? This month? This quarter?
Also, consider that with Digium phones on the horizon, we are able to leverage more Digium content than ever before, to support competitive pricing.

While we won’t always be able to provide additional price support, we would always like the opportunity. More often than not, we are able to help. Please contact your channel manager for further assistance.
