MGI Research Expert Panel on Usage Pricing: Pitfalls and Best Practices – Beyond the Hype

By BluLogix Team

Why usage-based pricing (UBP)?

2021 has seen the rise of the Usage Economy as companies look to add usage and consumption pricing models to their offerings. 

Usage pricing provides numerous benefits – a financially attractive entry point to try services, pay-as-you-go offers, greater flexibility, and can help tie price directly to the value your customers perceive. But usage models can also be financially risky and operationally challenging to implement. 

Despite this, UBP adoption is expected to continue to take off due to numerous benefits from faster revenue to growth to higher valuations (MGI Research, late 2021:)
