Case Study

Streamlining Pricing and Enhancing Client Confidence with SCOPE Better at XenoPsi Ventures

The Client

XenoPsi Ventures has been operating as a brand incubator for over twenty-five years providing financial, marketing and intellectual property support to a growing portfolio of companies. Method1, Function Growth and Z/Axis Strategies provide professional services to their clients throughout the United States. 

Founder and President MichaelAaron Flicker uncovered a critical issue that needed addressing to improve the pricing process and boost team confidence in estimating and quoting for services. 

The Challenge

XenoPsi Ventures partnered with Tim Williams at Ignition Group to overcome the challenge presented by the lack of a standardized pricing approach accessible to all teams.

The heavy reliance on President MichaelAaron for pricing insights and project valuation produced operational bottlenecks impeding scalability and proactivity in decision-making.

The Need for Change: Prior to adopting SCOPE Better, XenoPsi Ventures utilized Excel spreadsheets for pricing, leaning heavily on both the Finance Department and the company President for their review and approval for each estimate produced. This challenge was met and overcome with the introduction of SCOPE Better – a systematic and transparent system, allowing team members to propose prices confidently, and ultimately optimize scalability.
