Usage Guidance

  • This metric measures the price discount/savings as a percentage compared to a similar product/service.
  • For example, if the organization's product costs $5 and the average price for a similar product is $10 in the local market, this would be calculated as: ($5 - $10)/ $10 = -0.5 or 50% savings. Negative numbers can be interpreted as savings to the consumer (client).
