Accolent ERP Helps Distributors Optimize Customer Pricing

Extremely Flexible Pricing Options

Pricing functionality is critical to wholesale distributors’ profitability. Our enterprise distribution software offers extremely powerful pricing systems that are very flexible and easy to apply. Take advantage of these multiple levels of pricing capabilities and watch your sales increase and profits grow.

Contract Pricing

Create contracts for specific products or by product group, category, or sub-category, and for a single customer or for a shared list of customers. Contract pricing discounts include: percent discounts off list price, percent markups from standard cost, specific dollar amounts, specific quantity break levels and more. Expiration dates can be assigned to each item on a contract list.

Advertised Pricing

For special promotions use advertised pricing  to specify the starting date and expiration date of the promotion. You can offer as discounts off list price, markups from cost or as specific dollar prices.  Allow to override contract pricing or to assign the better of the contract price or advertised price.

Special Pricing

Use special pricing on top of discounts other than contract and advertised pricing. As with contract pricing, special prices may be defined for specific products or for groups, categories or sub-categories of products and for specific customers or for shared list of customers.

Quantity Break Pricing

Define quantity break schedules to give standard percentage discounts off list price at specified break levels for specific products or groups, categories or sub-categories of products. Can also be assigned as specific dollar amounts for each quantity break level and can be assigned to specific customers or groups of customers. We also support columnar pricing where quantities from different line items on the same order may be combined to give a cumulative discount quantity break.

Discount by Customer Pricelist (Matrix Pricing)

Create customer price lists specifying discounts off list, markups from cost or specific dollar amounts on particular products. Multiple customer price lists can be defined for various customer types and pricing profiles. Specific customers can then be assigned to specific pricing profiles depending on the customer type.

Discounts by Warehouse

Discounts may be applied based upon the selling warehouse.

Advanced Pricing Features for Individual Products

Decimal pricing allows pricing by more than two decimal places.

Catch weight pricing allows sale of items by weight or length where the actual weight or length varies slightly from discrete unit quantities.
