Re: Competitive Bidding

There you go... Looks like the average is three fifty...

Now you just have to decide which... $3.50 or $350...

If you haven't got the hint yet, every company is different and even IF you could come up with an "average price" for that one metric in the pricing, the overall pricing could still be different... If one guy needs to make $50K/yr and another needs $75-$100K/year, that one metric ALONE would place you far away from any "average price"... never mind all the OTHER costs of doing business...

It's not retail...
