I guessed that they were looking for a preventive approach as a solution. So I told them that there are two things that can be done. One is to perform an external benchmarking with the direct competitor on similar product portfolios. This will involve a detailed analysis on how they are able to sell the same product at a better price value. A possible hypothesis is that the competitor has a larger pricing band owing to the number of suppliers in his kitty.

Second thing is to attract customers by giving out offers and discounts. I atleast thought this answer went well them :-)
