Who We Are:
Predictive. Prescriptive. Profitable Retailing.

We provide SaaS-based pricing, promotion, markdown and space solutions. Retailers in all segments across the world adopt our self-funding model to improve top-line sales, demand, and margin. Our customers gain that competitive edge and improve their value proposition while outmaneuvering competitor price aggressiveness.

During the days of first-generation price optimization solutions, at a time where science in retail was viewed as voodoo, our founder Jeff Smith nurtured the concept that there could be a better way. He went on to form Revionics around that new-generation vision, and to this day we remain committed to his goal: To help retail businesses and everyday users solve complex pricing challenges leveraging the latest machine learning science with a completely transparent process, usable in an intuitive way that fits into retailers’ normal business flows.

Our company success is based on our 4 foundational pillars:

  • A SaaS-based architecture for fast ROI
  • Productized, transparent science
  • Machine Learning algorithms that continue to evolve with changing market conditions and shopper behaviors for built-in future proofing
  • A supportive culture focusing on both our people and customers’ well-being.

Our Core Values:

  • Integrity: Be honest, dependable and complete
  • Transparency: Anticipate questions and give clear, usable answers.
  • Continuous Improvement: Be relentless about improvement – for ourselves and our customers
  • Curiosity: Shine lights in dark corners; seek to ensure we know what we don’t know
  • Accountability: Own the problem and the solution
  • Dedication: Don’t stop until the numbers are right and systems are up
  • Humility: Put the spotlight on our customers, not ourselves
