Xactware collects price data across multiple channels, one of which is Xactanalysis. As we said in our last report, conservators should bear in mind that about 90% of the downloaded estimates for Xactanalysis do not come from entities that actually work in the real market. Still, Xactware says there is “a lot of effort to ensure that no party or industry has undue influence on the price data we study and report on.” The AGM will address this imbalance and the apparent separation head-on. Many restaurateurs wonder why each price should be taken into account in a market analysis, when it does not come from a practitioner who is currently working commercially. Unknown to many, says Xactware: “Ultimately, the right price for each job is based on an agreement between the buyer and the supplier: the price the buyer is willing to pay and the supplier is willing to work.” (Xactware Pricing Methodology Methodology Report, February 6, 2018) Restoration companies generally do not operate on the basis of “plus costs,” so their costs are generally irrelevant. In most cases, contractors are not required to deliver them. Non-life insurance is generally required to bear the “usual and usual costs of work.” This means retail price – not wholesale trade. When an entrepreneur works hard, builds a good reputation and treats his salespeople well, his business grows and he enjoys more purchasing power and earns well-deserved discounts. He was the one who earned this award, not the insurance or the client. Think about the shoe on the other foot and ask the presenter if the insurance company provides cost statements when issuing premium bills.
