What’s inside

PO Quantity Allotment

Organizations who need flexibility in how they split purchase order requests, find it frustrating with too much manual intervention in repeatable and timed PO administration. The accelerator helps by saving distribution rules by vendor, creating automatic distribution in post-MRP processes, and allowing users to manually launch planned orders using the rules in place.

Sales Kits

The accelerator helps by; working with BOM assemblies and product lines in Dynamics, it allows the user to prepare the “kit” at the point of order and take the components out of stock immediately. At the same time, the “kit” can be added directly into the customer’s order.

Rebate

The accelerator applies retrospective discounts via credit notes at the end of the financial period, identifying different rebate contracts with different percentage levels, dynamic generation of provisions attached to financial transactions and contracts and identification of invoices that fall within rebate contract frameworks.

Customer hierarchy

Organizations deal with customers that are often structured within groups (parent, sister, local or international) and must adapt their processes according to the role the various companies within the structure play. This accelerator helps distribution companies to structure their customers in specific ways, with levels that once set, are inherited automatically (for example if you have a customer group organization by county, country and international) and create a link between customers within sales and project processes; which leads to increased productivity and optimized delivery and invoicing.

Trade agreement

Distribution companies who deal with multiple suppliers, customers and products need greater flexibility and agility in managing price and trade conditions. The Trade Agreement accelerator provides additional flexibility in three key areas, boosting agility and productivity: Data management, Pricing engine and Sales analysis. Companies can adapt their pricing and promotional strategy for each customer, supplier, product, group and timing.

Transmit Automation

The accelerator follows a purchase’s physical progress aligned with Incoterms. In other words, to split a purchase in three steps: 1. Receipt of the goods in the system as soon as the organization owns the goods. This receipt will be document-based (example: customs agent via bill of lading, packing list…). 2. Registering goods in transit during transportation. 3. Physical receipt of the goods at the final place of delivery.

Customer Channel

When distributors are dealing with customers within a Group, sales order entries can be a challenge; particularly when dealing with high volumes of customer orders manual intervention of delivery and billing information slows down the process and can lead to errors. This accelerator helps by reflecting your customer structures and roles within the supply chain (especially when used in conjunction with the Customer Hierarchy accelerator), boosting the automation of your EDI import when entering customer orders, thus increasing productivity.
