Ray designed and was awarded a patent for a pricing engine that allows the owner of an electronic market place to dynamically change the pricing available at the electronic market place based on several factors including, but not limited to, manufacturer preferences, distributor preferences, e-market place preferences, the location of a buyer, identity of a buyer, order volume, and more. Buyers can access the e-market place through the Internet, input a request for quote, and then receive a price schedule based on the above factors.
Prior to Intensity, Ray founded Alucida LLC, a strategic management consultancy, and served as VP strategic development at SAIC, where he led the enterprise strategy for a $2 billion portfolio of businesses. Previously, he founded Enosys Software, a venture capital backed firm which was acquired by BEA Systems (now Oracle); he held marketing and product management positions with Hewlett Packard and Cohesive Technology; and he worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company.
