The services provided include command center activities, access controls and temporary and special event coverage in my security business. For each of the three services, the estimation of the price break-even for guarding an individual includes the overall fixed cost, the variable cost per person and the number of people guarded. The process used to achieve the price is: The formula: (Total fixed cost/ Number of People Guarded) + Variable Cost Per Person=Break-even Price If the total fixed cost, number of people guarded, and the variable cost per person for command center operations are $25,000, 5000, and $4 respectively, then, Break-even Price = ($25,000/5000) + $4 = $5 + $4 = $9 On the other hand, if the total fixed cost, number of people guarded, and the variable cost per person for access control are $28,000, 4,000, and $6 respectively, then,

Break-even Price = ($28,000/4,000) + $6

= $7 + $4

= $11

Lastly, if the total fixed cost, number of people guarded, and the variable cost per person for temporary event coverage are $64,000, 8,000, and $7 respectively, then,

Break-even Price = ($64,000/8,000) + $7

= $8 + $7

= $15

Price setting using the break-even method aims at not making any profit (Haynes, 2015). For this reason, the price adopted is the least possible and serves as a means through which the business can gain market share. Besides, using this technique can enable this business to drive out competitors and thereby increasing the output volume. Subsequently, with high production, the business can manage to lower costs. In such a scenario, the business gets the upper hand when it comes to generating profits from a price previously regarded as the break-even point. Alternatively, the business can decide to increase the price to become more profitable. However, the price cannot be too high as this will attract other players into the market leading to increased competition (Zimmerer, Scarborough, & Wilson, 2005). Thus, setting price using this technique is economical since it is the most acceptable by the buyers and the business neither loses customers nor money.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am not used to such services and I usually write all the papers by myself. But this time I got in a very difficult situation and had to order my paper on this website. To my surprise it appeared to be quite good. Thank you, it is really nice service. Think I'll get back to you soon!

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
